A very good cruise

Sail Date: September 02, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The Ryndam is a great cruise ship. The size makes it very comfortable and one never feels over crowded. I do have to say that the average age of the guest must have been 65 - 70, so that may have led to some folk remaining in their cabins while on the ocean and a dead nightclub after 10pm.

Pros: Good service, decent food, very good amenities

Cons: Extra costs for everything. Spinning, yoga, etc. Alcohol excessively overpriced. Ship internal condition a concern.

Recommends Ryndam? Yes!

Ship Quality
Generally very good except for two major problems - multiple plumbing blockages - not cool when your stateroom toilet refuses to flush for two days!!! Elevators and escalators were also constantly out of service - they may require an overhaul. A big let down was the expresso machine breaking down on the fourth day of the cruise and not being repaired. PS don't buy a coffee card for this one.
Cabin / Stateroom
Adquate value for money.
Service and Staff
Very obliging and always attentive.
Food and Dining
A great selection of food which was unfortunately not complemented by a below par wine list in the main dining room. Pinnacle Grill has a very good wine list, however with the prices charged for wine, most would expect those on the cruise to have their own yachts.
Excursions on offer were supurb. a wide variety offered for all tastes and budgets.Entertainment was appropriate for the type of guests in attendance.
Juneau, Alaska
Sport fishing with "Captian Mike" was great .Alaska Sheepskin Company is worth a visit.
Skagway, Alaska
Enough with the jewellrey shops.
Don't Miss: Yukon Paddle and Saddle.
Ketchikan, Alaska

Don't Miss: Neats Bay bear watch by float plane. Amazing expierence.
