A good first time cruise

Sail Date: August 28, 2016

Reviewed: 9 months ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Our favorite part of the cruise were the excursions we did: Glacier Point Wilderness Safari by boat, Eagle Preserve float In Haines; the captain and crew of the Noordam had a commitment to provide the best experience possible for the passengers, the captain especially eager for us to see all the wildlife possible.

The food was not as good as expected, except for our dinners in the Canneletto and Pinnacle restaurants - food in the Lido was not very hot & cold air in the room quickly cooled the food.


The air was very dry and may well have increased the rate of flu and colds among the passengers. 


However, overall it was a good 1st time cruise.

Did not know we could have dined in the Vista Lounge during open seating - our tip: ask more questions
