Food and Dining

So enjoyed the Pinacle restaurant, the others were hit and miss. I am not a buffet person, but it was nice to be able to get cheese, fruit and bread mid afternoon

comedians and small shows were good, the others were stale and boring. Last night of entertainment Liars Club was a HOOT and the dance numbers were good.

Landing and walking on a Glacier was unbelievable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The salmon bake on board was ten times better than the one on shore. It was a tourist trap and food was awful
Don't Miss: Helicopter to Glacier
5 out of 5
trolley ride was way tooooooo short and not enought time at Totem Park SHopping was great with sales at the end of the season.
Don't Miss: Spend more time at the Totem park and take the longer talk

Pros: The use of locals such as Park Rangers, Naturalists on board for their expertise

Cons: Open Dining would have preferred upscale package

Recommends Oosterdam? Yes!
