7 Night Alaskan Explorer With Hubbard Glacier (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 12, 2006
Ship: Oosterdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 11 years ago
A beautiful and well kept ship, service was excellent, every need attended to. Our cabin faced the rear of the ship so we had a panoramic view of where we'd been. The balcony was huge, ample room for several people to sit and/or move around. The food was good, portions were kept small and varied in the restaurants. The Pinnacle Grill was outstanding. The buffet was as good as a buffet can be, we ate most of our meals in the restaurant or room service for breakfast.

The shows were good and varied, appealed to most everyone, they lasted about an hour and were held every day. Shopping was confined to a large area on one deck. I personally like that concept. There was no pressure to buy whatsoever.

The gym facility was large and at the front of the ship with TV's and a good view of the ocean.

Ports of call were interesting and easily accessible, again no pressure to buy tours. Do as little or as much as you wish.
