7 Night Glacier Bay Inside Passage (Vancouver Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 16, 2007

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The ship was spotless - cleaner than most hotels I've stayed at.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was wonderful - we enjoyed a room service breakfast most mornings that was delivered on time and the orders were always filled accurately. The best meal was at the Pinnacle Grill - the service and the food were out of this world!


5 out of 5
The yoga classes on board were comparable to classes I've taken in any yoga studio. The trivia and bingo were alot of fun too.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff, from the captain to our room steward, were so friendly and warm - I haven't experienced customer service like that in a long time. It was like we all became friends.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship's layout was easy to master - after the first day we easily found our way around. Every area was well maintained and there was plenty of room for everyone.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had lots of room and it was very easy to move around. Never felt cramped or crowded.

Skagway was not my favorite port, perhaps because we did not schedule a shore excursion. The townspeople were not very friendly and the town was a bit depressing overall.

We went to the Alaskan Rain Forest Zipline excursion - and I'm so glad we did. Words can't describe how exciting this adventure was, nor can they describe how gorgeous the scenery was.
5 out of 5
The Mendenhall glacier and Whale Watching excursion were unreal - we saw Orcas and Humpback whales. The ship's crew were knowledgeable and friendly.

Pros: The food, the staff, the shore excursions, the accommodations

Cons: The fact that it had to end!

Recommends Ryndam? Yes!
