7 Night Alaska Inside Passage (Vancouver Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 27, 2014
Ship: Zaandam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 7086
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

the weather was bad and can't be helped.  With four days at sea it would have been nice to have more activities offered on those days.  Could use better entertainment and more shows offered. I had been on two other cruises with other cruise lines and was confident entertainment would be wonderful.  Wait staff was GREAT and made te trip more enjoyable.

it was nice - engine noise was a little loud one night. Otherwise - great!

Ship Tip

Enjoyed all staff especially Lido deck. It was nice to have tacos and burgers around the pool for something different at lunch. Loved Happy Hour for drinks and appetizers.

Stanley Park was very nice. Skyway was great and saved money getting to the ship
