Beautiful Alaska

Sail Date: July 01, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

Nice staff. You are charged for everything beyond the core basics and the fees are outrageous. Passengers joke among themselves -- when a new napkin is supplied at dinner (\"Will this cost us?\")\, but it truly is not funny.
We are encouraged several times to give \"extra\" tips\, even though we are charged 15% extra for tipping for everything -- meals\, service\, everything. Yet we are told if we enjoyed ourselves\, to tip more. Why??

Pros: Whale watching\, beautiful views

Cons: Poor pre-boarding\, mandatory tips\, very unreasonable prices on all \"extras\"

Recommends Zuiderdam? Yes!
