7 Night Alaskan Explorer (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 12, 2009
Ship: Zaandam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
easy to find places in the ship well planed. Did not like the food choices they had for vegeterians and they were not considerate enough to make proper accomodations for it either. Room services were OK - didn't get a fresh batch of towels everyday.
internet service was horrible and very unreliable. did't have much for entertainment - would be nice to have comedians like in Carnival. Never heard of "sorry sir, we are out of it" in a cruise before during breakfast or lunch. overall, not very exciting that would leave a lasting impression.
