7 Night Alaska Explorer (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 24, 2010
Ship: Rotterdam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 7 years ago
Overall, we had a wonderful 7-day cruise with our Lanai room being the most enjoyable with a great view. There were 18 people in our group and most everyone felt this same way. The ship was kept spotless clean and the buffett areas very clean with minimal contamination potential because the food was served by the staff rather than passengers helping themselves.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Buffett food was found to be better than our sitdown Indian vegetarian food in Le Fontain room. Robert, the person in charge of this, tried his best to work with the Indian cooks to provide good Indian food but it was not the best..

Some of the programs were good but not great. Many of the songs are somewhat dated but we were impressed with the stage management and quick costume changes and set changes.
