Review Summary

This was my first cruise. We did have the penthouse. Our treatment was excellent. We only had one ruff night where the water was very ruff. If I had to complain about something it would be having to pay for sodas . Anyone cruising for the first time make sure you check out all added expenses. Elevators were too slow.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

The food was good but when we went to formal night the serving size was very small. Dinner was disapointing.

Ketchikan, Alaska

5 out of 5
We did the zip line here, had a great time but it was a little more strenuious then we thought it would be.

Juneau, Alaska

5 out of 5
I enjoyed Juneau. We had a river float planned there but it was cancelled due to ice in the river. We did enjoy shopping in the city.

Pros: The crew treated us very well, and the service was great.

Cons: If you do not drink coffee, tea or water you have to pay for sodas.

Recommends Oosterdam? Yes!
