Review summary

Overall very nice.

Ship experiences

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

3 out of 5
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.

Ports of call

Skagway, Alaska

1 out of 5
The cruise ships own this port (the locals called it the Tijuana of Alaska because to this - I agree!)
Don't Miss: Nothing

Juneau, Alaska

3 out of 5
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!
