7 Night Alaskan Explorer (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 25, 2006
Ship: Zaandam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship was small enough to give a comfort level and large enough to spread the people about without any feeling of crowding. One still had the pleasure of sailing, not encased in a cavernous mall. The vessel was always immaculate with pleasing works of varied art throughout the ship.

The Mendenhall Glacier was THE sight to see in Juneau. Local transport makes it convenient and inexpensive.
Don't Miss: Mendenhall Glacier

The "sea otter quest" was a worthwhile experience for people who enjoy wildlife viewing. The Sitka Historical Park was also a worthwhile and inexpensive site for those interested in the local culture.

Misty Fjords boat and floatplane combo tour was excellent for viewing spectacular scenery and some wildlife and for a different perspective from the air. Its drawback was that it is very expensive.

Butchart Gardens was the only real choice for the time alloted in Victoria but a terrific site for flower lovers, even at night.

Pros: The wraparound deck and bow viewing of scenery

Cons: the glass partition on the top deck in the bow
