7 Night Alaskan Explorer With Glacier Bay (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 17, 2014
Ship: Westerdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6145
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The ship was generally dirty.  Shower mat and curtain had black mold growing on them.  Walls in cafe/buffet area where you sit and eat had food and dirt on them.  There was no one regularly supervising the workout facilities, so you had people on their cell phones being disruptive and not wiping down the equipment when they're done.  I asked the staff when one showed up just before closing (@ 9PM - why limit it to then when you're on excursions most of the day??) and he told me that they only do a "good" wipe down at the end of each day!!  Food was barely acceptable and you only had access to it for dinner after 5:30PM - they closed most of the day - even for any type of healthy snacks or fruit.  Shame on them!!!!!
