Verified Review
7 Night Alaskan Explorer (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 13, 2011
Ship: Westerdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
staff trained to be poilite, always attentive, constantly cleaning the ship, providing all kinds of entertainment, food basically tasty but too abundant, didn't understand how short the time ashore was going to be or that one would start at 7am and end aboutnoon and another would be on a Friday ngiht. Perhaps length of shore stay and timimng of said needs to be clarified

7am came in - interesting - saw a bear and whales and eagles - would have preferred more time and a later start
3 out of 5
poured rain - that wasn't the ship's fault but it did dampen the experience
Don't Miss: glacier even in the rain was spectacular
5 out of 5
