7 Night Alaskan Explorer With Glacier Bay (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 21, 2014
Ship: Westerdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 7097
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

Although we had mostly overcast and light rain for most of the time, it never stopped us from doing everything we we wanted to do.  Our veranda cabin was clean and well-attended to by the attendant.  Food was to get huge variety on the Lido deck and had a varied menu and wonderful waiters in the Vista dining room at night. Would highly recommend the Saxman Village  excursion...our tour guide, Jack, was excellent! Also recommend taking the tram in Juneau...great views and go to the gift shop to see the master totem carver and to the theater to see the short videoon the Tlinget culture. We never did see any whales, bears, etc...only seals sunning themselves one day.  Margarite Glacier was fantastic.

We didn't spend much time in the cabin, nor even on the veranda...we traveled with my brother who had a suite and often got together with him and used his balcony
