Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Good food, it was flavorful and the salmon was moist. For first time cruisers remember the dining room is NOT just for dinner. We made this mistake.


5 out of 5
There was always something to do. There was always space (not overcrowded) to participate in any of the activities.

Service and Staff

Very nice people.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Staterooms were very clean. Some of the public spaces were starting to show wear - nothing bad though

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Very clean, non-smoking room yet the couch had a cig burn in it which made me question why the cushion wasn't at least turned.

The cruise ships own this port (the locals called it the Tijuana of Alaska because to this - I agree!)
Don't Miss: Nothing

Best was the pilot choice, I would have liked to see the vistors center at the glaicer

Pros: The views - the landscape is wonderful

Cons: The fact that the cruise ships own absolutely everything

Recommends Volendam? Yes!
