Oosterdam Cruise Review to Alaska - Inside Passage
Sail Date: September 16, 2006
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The ship was beautiful. You could not fault the elegant of the decor.
The food was plentiful and the salmon dishes were excellent. I felt the presentation in the Lido was very "cafeteria" - and not as well done as in the dining room. The constant smell of garlic was somewhat annoying, especially when eating dessert.
I liked the craft classes and the shore talks. Evening entertainment was enjoyable but the musical numbers were far too loud. I used earplugs.
