7 Night Glacier Discovery Northbound (Vancouver To Anchorage)
Sail Date: August 03, 2014
Ship: Oosterdam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 4072
Traveled As: Couple

While we thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful scenery, especially glacier bay, we were unimpressed with the Oosterdam. The food was just a bit above average. There were no noticeable decorative food displays, such as breads made in shapes of animals or fruits shaped into objects. There was no special desert showing, such as a "chocalate extravaganza" . The best food we had was probably the hamburgers served by the pool - they were excellent. The dining hours were not convenient if you wanted to go to the 7:00 entertainment as the Lido deck restaurant closed ar 8:00.

We are not alcohol drinkers and were continualky pestered to buy drinks if we sat down to listen to music in one of the lounges - there were no free soft drinks available that we were aware of.

Our room was very nice as were all the staff people we dealt with other than those who pestered us to by drinks.

The entertainment was fairly good, though nothing very memorable.

My husband and I will likely not choose a Holland cruise in the future,
