Zaandam Cruise Review to Alaska - Inside Passage
Sail Date: July 30, 2010
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship was beautiful, service exceptional, very few glitches, one with an over-charge that took quite some time to resolve.
We had amazing weather - time of trip on advice of several including our advocate from Cheap Tickets Hans Gartmann (Peter) worked well.
I really disliked the commercialism at every port - jewelry shops promoted at every turn. I would much rather have seen more of the "real" Alaska.
Glaciers were awesome; saw whales sea otters and sea lions - big bonus.
Shore excursions were well done, but pricey for time allowed. All in all - good. Carol Zehntner
