7 Night Alaskan Explorer Via Hubbard Glacier (Seattle Roundtrip)

We sailed to Alaska and if ever there was a perfect cruise, this would have been it. The weather was great, the ship was awesome, our room was cozy and the ship's crew were the friendliest I have ever had the pleasure to be around.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food tasted great, but we wish we had a few more choices. It seemed after a couple days that it was pretty much the same choices over and over. It was very tasty though.

The bed was the most comfortable bed we had ever slept on and we want one of those same mattresses for home now.

Beautiful city but not near enough time allowed to see any of it. Good shopping.

Excellent port, very fun place to visit. The shopping was outstanding and everything is close to the ship. The trolley ride around town is worth it, lots of history!

Not enough shopping and having to be tendered to shore was a pain but a very pretty place to visit. Take the tram ride, it's a gorgeous view and allows for great pictures of the city and port as well as the ship.

Pros: The staff and crew of the ship

Cons: Not enough time in ports

Recommends Oosterdam? Yes!
