Review SummaryMy wife and I have never gone on a cruise before - the experience was an absolute joy. Food was excellent and the Le Cirque night at the Pinnacle Grill provided us with the best dining experience of our lives. If going on the Oosterdam we recommend attending the Le Cirque night at Pinnacle, we had lamb and chatteaux briand.
On board entertainment was outstanding Julie Barr was an amazing comedienne, the Oosterdam dancers and singers were first rate also.
Staterooms were attended to 3-4 times per day, pretty much any time we were gone for the room for more than an hour it was cleaned.
The only negative is that it is almost impossible to get past the tourist shops at ports unless you pay large amounts for the excursions, more time in port would have helped. The other commend would be to drop one of the Alaskan ports and had more time scheduled in Victoria.
