Ship Facts: Amsterdam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Amsterdam Deck Plans
Weird Schedule but nice ship

I sailed with a large family group on June 7, 2014.

We left from and returned to Seattle and took advantage of the pre and post cruise hotel and transfer package with the Sheraton Seattle Downtown.

The ship was small but spotless. The crew and staff were extremely friendly and polite, although many of them do not speak English.

Our room (an outside window cabin, 1962) was clean and well designed. Although it was on the small side, there was tons of storage and we never felt cramped.

The activities on the ship are geared toward an older crowd and we felt rather bored after almost three full days at sea at the beginning of the itinerary. The glacier was worth the "drive" however.

Our teenaged daughter loved the Loft and Club HAL was a hit with my young nephews. The photographers were an unexpected highlight (I usually don't buy any cruise pictures, but ended up selecting the "gold" package for this cruise).

The food, with the exception of Canaletto (which we loved) was abysmal.

Sitka was our favorite port, and our favorite shore excursion was the Sled Dog Camp in Juneau.
