7 Night Alaska Explorer (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 03, 2010
Ship: Zaandam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

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.

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.

Wished we could have spent more time there. Would love to return during the day to see more sites.

Rained that day but the tramway to Mt. Roberts was great - we hiked and saw clouds below us!
Don't Miss: The tram

Pros: Food and ports were awesome

Cons: Stateroom was noisy - under galley

Recommends Zaandam? Yes!
