Verified Review
7 Night Alaskan Explorer Via Glacier Bay (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 29, 2008
Ship: Westerdam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 9 years ago

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our experiences of spending time together. The glaciers were amazing, along with the mountains, water, and the people on the ship. I read an article in Juneau about cruise ships, use of fuel, and pollution. That bothered us. We LOVE to go on cruises, but we feel a bit convicted because we're contributing to the problem.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Our servers were very accommodating; excellent food and presentation. Wonderful that we could eat special dishes from over 25 countries. Surano (sp) and Tiger were great! The wine server was sweet, though we didn't have anything to drink at all. He always stopped by to wish us a wonderful evening.


5 out of 5
Dancers were equally highlighted with singers. Jeff Tracta (sp) was especially good.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our cabin steward was so quiet, helpful. We almost never saw him, but he kept everything perfect throughout.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Rooms larger than other ships we've had.

Pros: Family time at least three times a day over gourmet meals.

Cons: Noise on Deck 1; we think we should have been told that ahead of time.

Recommends Westerdam? Yes!
