Review Summary

The ship was very well organised and communication was valuable, timely but not intrusive. The staff were very helpful and friendly and professional. There was a high emphasis on making us feel special and pampered. Everything we encountered was of an extremely high standard. Cleanliness throughout the ship was exceptional. Our cabin was roomy and the balcony well used by us. The variety of eating options was also greatly appreciated. In all, the experience was extremely positive and we would recommend this ship to anyone.

The variety of 'little extras' encountered after the room had been cleaned each day went above and beyond.

Ports Of Call

Juneau, Alaska

3 out of 5
the town itself was nothing to rave about, but we found a beautiful mountain walk at the back of the township that was invigorating and made this stop worthwhile.
Don't Miss: We loved the catamaran trip further up Tracey Arm to the base of the glacier.

Ketchikan, Alaska

3 out of 5
the town itself was very touristy but a walk in the hills to the back and then down into the 'suburban' area was interesting.

Skagway, Alaska

5 out of 5
We loved the helicopter ride to walk on the glacier. We also found the local bus trip to the Summit worthwhile with a very interesting driver (recited local ballads!) and then the walk around a lake at the back was enjoyable.
Don't Miss: Glacier helicopter trip

Pros: the comfort of the cabin and the friendly and helpful staff

Cons: lack of self laundry availability

Recommends Zuiderdam? Yes!
