Marvelous experience!!

Sail Date: September 04, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

The ship was beautiful, well maintained and staffed by friendly, warm people. The entertainment was first class and Glen, the Australian piano player in the Piano Bar was most enjoyable and fun. The aft pool deck was our favorite place to hang when we weren't being wined, dined or else ashore. Dave was an exceptional server and a delightful young man.

Pros: It is difficult to choose between the spectacular scenery, the warm and friendly staff and the fabulous food. Loved the Captain's sense of humor!

Cons: The cabin was a bit small for 3 people

Recommends Oosterdam? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Overall comfort was good but the cabin was rather cramped for 3 people. It was always clean and the bathroom was very nice.
Ship Quality
All areas were well maintained, clean and easily accessible once we got our bearings.
Food and Dining
Excellent food artfully served by a friendly staff in a beautiful setting.
Service and Staff
A wonderful staff - always willing to do extra things above their required duty. Most were quite humorous and that was a great plus! We thoroughly enjoyed meeting them.
Juneau, Alaska
We lucked out with warm sunny weather which made our side trips even better. The helicopter ride to the glaciers and the sled dog camp was spectacular. The pilot and the crew at the dog camp were all super!! Whale watching was marvelous as Orcas abounded! Friendly people made it all just great!!
Don't Miss: A reindeer sausage sandwich and a glass of Alaskan Amber beer at The Red Dog Saloon are not to be missed!!!
Sitka, Alaska
A lovely town even in the rain.
Don't Miss: The old Russian church is a must to see.
Ketchikan, Alaska
Picturesque docking area. Too many jewelry stores all trying to entice you in.
