OK for a cruise. Not much variety. But, there was an outstanding string quartet in one of the lounges.

Got our own transportation to Mendenhall glacier and took a nice 4 mile hike.

We walked to the totem pole park

Pros: Great views of glaciers and friendly dining and room staff.

Cons: They were a little pushy with their products -- tours and drinks. We did not take any of the Holland American tours, but were able to do lots when we got off the trip with local guides.

Recommends Zaandam? Yes!
