Good cruise; disappointing land tour

Veendam Cruise Review to Alaska - Inside Passage

Overall Rating:

3 out of 5
Sail Date: May 01, 2006
Ship: Veendam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple

Overall impression of the ship was good. Some areas were in need of refurbishing, i.e. carpet, bathroom fixtures. Food was good, but lots of salmon dishes were served (probably because we were cruising Alaska!) and I'm not a big salmon lover. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Would really loved to have had a 24-hour food bar of some sort open for folks like me that get hungry in-between hours of lunch, dinner, etc.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Although carpet and bathroom fixtures need refurbishing, overall the stateroom was excellent. Enjoyed the size of the room, bed, window, and really like the location of the stateroom.

Pros: Most liked the sanitation stations set up for hand cleansing!

Cons: Did not like not having a 24-hour pizza bar (or similar station) open at all hours.
