Veendam Cruise Review to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska
Sail Date: June 28, 2009
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 8 years ago
It was a fabulous, well organized cruise from notification about our late departure (which gave us more time in Vancouver) to the upbeat and helpful crew. We loved the onboard Lifestyles/fitness program which was free and included Tai Chi classes, aqua aerobics, sunset stroll, etc. The naturalist on staff was also very informative in various programs as were the park rangers in Glacier Bay. The food was generally excellent and the pastry chef was outstanding. There was a 5K Race for the Cure onboard, which we participated in and thought was a great idea.

Pros: The cabin stewards and wait staff were outstanding, the room very comfortable even for 4, food was first rate, plenty of activities onboard
Cons: Front desk wasn't so helpful, very annoying that the prices for in-cabin beverages isn't posted ANYWHERE until you receive a bill for them
