A wonderful Alaskan cruise on the Volendam travelling with friends.  Perfect weather, smooth sailing!  It was delightful cruising through Tracy Arm and visiting the glaciers again!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Inconsistent quality and quantity of food. The lower salt content was a great improvement..
Service and Staff
Soprano who was our statesroom attendant was always efficient maintaining our room. He is ultimate crew member who was always smiling whenever he sees the patrons on the cruise.
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Our cruise ship, Volendam, was smooth that we entered the waters seeing whales, dolphins and resting closer to the glaciers and Tracy Arms...kudos to the captain and the crew!
Cabin / Stateroom
Comfortable. Clean. The safety box was not used, as using our credit cards was skeptical and the box should be updated.
Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia Always a beautiful place to embark or disembark. The handlers were polite and patient doing our suitcases.
Juneau, Alaska
Close to visit the port. Hungry salespersons!
Skagway, Alaska Always a joy to watch the train except for the longer walk to the port! We had a great and informative tour guide when we had our walkabout of the port. Thank you
Cruise Glacier Bay Fabulous!
Ketchikan, Alaska Always a favourite stopover to purchase our fish oil, chowder, canned salmon at Salmon Select at the Furry Creek........they are much nicer store!o
Cruise Inside Passage, Alaska
Smoother than usual


Go to the library to have a very good view and sit among a variety of books.

The Volendam is the best ship to steer us closer to the glaciers and Tracy Arm!
Thank you!
