Stateroom noisy

Sail Date: September 03, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We liked everything about the ship except that our staterooms were underneath the galley so we didn't get a full night's sleep the entire cruise. Staff would be overhead in the late evenings for the midnight buffet and in the early mornings to get ready for the breakfast meal. Even bleary-eyed, we found plenty to keep us busy and the port calls were great.

Pros: Food and ports were awesome

Cons: Stateroom was noisy - under galley

Recommends Zaandam? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Wish that they offered free or even discounted well drinks and house wines as one glass of wine costed $16, which I thought was very high.
Cabin / Stateroom
Ample room to move around - plenty of storage in bathroom - stateroom steward was awesome.
Service and Staff
No complaints about anyone who worked on the ship!
Ketchikan, Alaska
Go beyond the tourist part of the town to see how the locals live
Victoria, British Columbia
Wished we could have spent more time there. Would love to return during the day to see more sites.
Juneau, Alaska
Rained that day but the tramway to Mt. Roberts was great - we hiked and saw clouds below us!
Don't Miss: The tram
Sitka, Alaska
Take the tour for the totem poles
