7 Night Alaskan Explorer Via Glacier Bay (Seattle Roundtrip) Sail Date: May 25, 2008 Ship: Westerdam Cabin Type: Balcony Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 9 years ago
Very clean. Easy and quick embarcation and disembarcation.
Food plentiful and good to very good food.
Room and food staff always smiling and helpful (although oddly there was almost always some breakfast mixup). Great fresh orange juice each day.
shows entertaining although production numbers sometimes missed.
Would have liked more activities in days at sea and someties public space was not adequate ( line dancing crammed togetherin library!)

Very clean. Sometimes inadequate space for activity--or in sufficient chairs. Also wonder at designing of Crows Nest area with horizontal bar crossing window exactly at eye level--harming view if seated.
Cute town. Did expensive salmon fishing--as far as I could tell, no one caught anything. Also be very careful with independents-"F****" promised 4 hours, then when on ship wanted to give 3 hoursonly, he also forgot telling me that we would go past the otters (and then claimed that he did not know that I wanted to see them even though I reminded him several times) and he had to be reminded that he had taken a $20 pp cash deposit in addition to charging the full amount (I might think it a mistake but after my husband pointed it out and got the $20s back, noticed F**** did not return the deposit taken from the other passengers until they insisted on it)
