7 Night Alaskan Explorer With Glacier Bay (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 30, 2016
Ship: Westerdam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 1004
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 1 year ago

The glaciers were my favorite part, Mendenhall in Juneau and going through Glacier Bay.  The Whale Quest in Juneau was close - we saw dozens of whales, including a breach, seals, orcas, sea lions.


Our only disappointment was the 40 knot winds which prevented the ship from going into Victoria.

On ship dining was delicious, every meal, and we thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
There were four of us in the cabin and it was only crowded unpacking and repacking. Twin beds, a couch, and a pull down bunk provided separate beds for each of us. There was room for all our gear. Very nice.

Make advance reservations if you want to eat at the Space Needle.

We did not get into Victoria, and while our excursion fair was refunded, it was very disappointing.
