7 Night Glacier Bay Inside Passage (Vancouver Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 09, 2008
Ship: Veendam
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 10 years ago

The ship is immaculately clean, and well maintained. The decor is a bit gold and glitter for my taste, but I have pretty simple tastes. Even though corridors and floors are well marked, it is still easy to get turned around when trying to find your way from one part of the ship to another.

Lots of variety. I especially enjoyed the cooking demonstrations that they have in the culinary center.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We travelled with our 21 month old son, and the crew were fabulous. They always paid him special attention, made origami animals for him, and made him laugh. The front desk staff was excellent in helping us make changes in our travel arrangements when our existing flight arrangements needed to be adjusted.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Even though we had an inside stateroom with no porthole, the room felt spacious and efficient, and, of course, immaculately clean
