7 Night Alaskan Explorer (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 12, 2012
Ship: Westerdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Food, boredom, weather-rains 362 days/yr in AK, nothing but wheelchairs, walkers & walking sticks. Depressing being around a whole ship of old people. The passengers walked around like they had just rolled out of bed. Some went to the restaurant in their pajamas & sock feet. Food was inedible. The excursions were a rip-off. The "Raptor Center" in Ketchikan was a shed with a crippled eagle & a big woman with an 8 yr old Owl on her hand. That's it! I cannot recommend one good thing about Westerdam. You have to pay for coke/water. Cokes are $2.95/can PLUS a 15% gratuity. I'll never cruise again.

Food and Dining

The food was inedible. It was nothing but a cafeteria. The dining restaurant was better, but still not good.

Bingo, shows were very disappointing. Ping pong. Boring.
