Very clean, room was large with lots of closet space. We were on deck 3 - promendade and view from window was really great.
Recommended spending as much time as you can on deck, the scenery was so great, we saw eagles and whales right off the side of the boat.
Nighttime shows were very entertaining.

Very easy to take $7 shuttle to Mendenhall Glacier. Take the time to do the 3 mile hike up into the woods. Waterfall at lower level was spectacular. Keep you eye out for bear and eagle sightings!
Don't Miss: Mendenhall glacier

Best stop, less touristy than the other ports of call. We did a float-plane which was outstanding!
Don't Miss: Float plane

Get out in the harbor doing some kind of water activity, lots of otter and whales to see. The totem park was very peaceful, lots of pine trees and places to sit.
Don't Miss: Harbor tour

We did a walking tour, our stop was 7pm to 11pm. Victoria at night was very pretty. I thought the residents of Victoria were on the rude side. Next time I would just stay on the boat
Don't Miss: Empress Hotel

Pros: Scenery

Cons: lido deck buffet

Recommends Zaandam? Yes!
