7 Night Alaskan Explorer (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 28, 2006
Ship: Zaandam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
This is our 5th cruise and 4th with Holland America. As I anticipated, the service was excellent on board the Zaandam in every area. The food choices were excellent and varied during the course of the cruise. The boarding and disembarkation was handled efficiently and effectively. Best we have ever experienced on any cruise that we have taken. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the ship and attention to detail. Cabin Stewards and Dining Stewards spoke to us by name individually. Laundry was handled excellently and returned daily. Great Service!! I feel we really the cruise that we paid for. I was very pleased. Thanks for a great, relaxing and excellent vacation.

Was only in Victoria for the evening and did Butchart Gardens and short city tour. The gardens were beautiful, but I would have liked to have seen them during the day and the city tour was a complete waste of time. Too fast...boring...wouldn't do either of these again. Victoria is too beautiful to waste like this. Must spend more time here!!
Don't Miss: Butchart Gardens during the day
