7 Night Alaska Inside Passage (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 14, 2006
Ship: Westerdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 12 years ago

The ship was operated in a very safe and courteous manner. I think that the artwork displayed daily was very uninteresting. Alcohol hand cleanser dispensers were well placed and more of them would be good to stop/slow the spread of sickness/disease. Well organized to get on the ship and off the ship quickly at all ports. All the ports were good choices.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
On an Alaskan cruise a little more of Northwest cuisine would have been appropriate (ie: fish and chips, crab, shellfish) being it is a nautical Northwest cruise.

Tours of the inner workings of the ship (ie:engine room,power room,etc) would be nice as was the kitchen tour.

A good town for walking on your own. Nice shops downtown.
Don't Miss: Sitka Nat'l Historical Park is a must see/totem poles and wooded walking trails
5 out of 5
Great city for shopping, dining, desserts, double decker buses...wax museum, parliament buildings.
Don't Miss: Horse and carriage rides. Walk inside The Empress Hotel.
5 out of 5
Tramway is way too expensive for such a short ride. Downtown walking/shopping has a good variety of things to do. Saloons/taverns have a relaxing "Klondike" feel to them.
Don't Miss: Red dog Saloon is a must experience!
5 out of 5
Wonderful town! Lots of quality Russian products for sale. Good town for a seafood meal.
Don't Miss: Creek Street.

Pros: Top notch helpful employees/quality of food/casino/ports/nice room

Cons: 3% charge for casino cash advance/told 0% prior to trip
