7 Night Alaska Glacier Discovery (Vancouver Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 11, 2016
Ship: Volendam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 1881
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Best part of the cruise was the time spent in Glacier Bay.

Worst part of the cruise was the noisy room.

Food was mostly O.K., nothing exceptional.

Entertainment was mediocre for a cruise ship, especially so close to shore.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Main dining O.K. Lido buffet always busy, but fast and filling. Italian specialty restaurant not worth the price. Pinnacle specialty restaurant lunch best value on the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Noisy 3 nights of the cruise. Sounded like construction going on over or beside the room. Staff could not find the source. Only one electric outlet in the whole room. Where do you charge cameras, cell phones and IPad? Impossible to use the sink without getting water all over the floor. The sink was angled down away from the wall so that any water that splashed onto the counter, ran off and down to the floor. Very dry heat in the room, so that skin and nasal passages became dry and irritated.
