Whale watching.

Pros: The Alaskan landscape was fantastic. The glaciers and wildlife was super. Salmon and bears in the rivers was quite a site. Zaandam is a quality ship with all the variety of onboard activities you will need on a cruise. The food was excellent in all the places.

Cons: We had a late dinner seating (8:15 pm) every night.
