We have been on over 20 cruises on most of the cruiselines. This was the best. The entertainment wasa great, food was excellent, service was impeccable. The tour prices were very expensive, but the best we have seen on any cruise. We saw whales, eagles, sea otters, porpoises, salmon, sled dogs and glaciers.
It is an older crowd, but even the multiple children whowere on board had a great time.
Microsoft Computer classes is a new and taught ypu how to take digital pictures, get them into the computer and edit the pictures and then print them or download to web
We absolutely loved this cruise!!!!!!!

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was great, but as a steak eater it was adequate. Everyone enjoyed the food. I am a fussy eater. Service was excellent!!!!!!! I like the option of open dining or a certain time and th ability to chose.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Room was always clean and we were not hassled when we slept in. Our steward always made sure we had everything we needed and a towel animal and treat for bed.

Pros: Food Staff and Room Stewards were the best

Cons: Photographs were very expensive as were the tours, however the tours were worth the price

Recommends Zaandam? Yes!
