Review summary

Overall, a great trip. This is my second time on the Oosterdam. It was remodeled I think last year. If I had to complain (just a little) it would be that they added cabins to the Observation deck right behind the Crows Nest. It was nice to be able to get right out on to the outside deck without going through the cabin passage way.

Ketchikan, Alaska

Weather was great but the excursion I bought from the visitors center was not worth the money. I will only book excursions thru HAL in the future.
