Alaska with Style

Sail Date: May 14, 2006

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

The Westerdam is beautiful. Only 2 years old, it was built in Italy and has bits of Italien design throughout the ship. It is spacious with lots of areas for relaxing. The main stage has everything needed to put on first class shows. The ship feels elegant. Plenty of areas to watch the beautiful scenery. Lots of comfy chairs. It never feels crowded. It is also the prettiest ship out there with it's navy and white paint.

Pros: The staff were totally accomodating, helpful in every way.

Cons: Unclear dining instructions on our last night of travel.

Sitka, Alaska
City tour with the Cultural Center, Archangel Dancers, Mt Michael's church, and the Raptor Center. Felt we spent a bit too much time at the Cultural Center. Wanted more time at the Raptor Center. Especially enjoyed seeing the Bald Eagles and the eagle talk. There was zero time for the gift shop.
Don't Miss: Raptor Center and Russian Dancers
Juneau, Alaska
Enjoyed the city tour with Mendenhall Glacier. Also did the tram up the mountain. Both were worthwhile.
Don't Miss: Mendenhall Glacier
Ketchikan, Alaska
Would have liked a longer stop. Loved Ketchikan. Did the Duck Tour. Our guide was delightful -Brian- and very informational. Fun to take the Duck from land to water. Walked around town. Enjoyed Creek Street.
Don't Miss: Duck Tour and walking around on Creek Street.
