Westerdam's last Alaskan cruise for 2011: Westerdam Cruise Review by midwest 852
Overall Member Rating
Westerdam's last Alaskan cruise for 2011
alarm on the loading docks.
Captain Keijer informed us that due to high winds & 18ft. waves we would take the inside passage
to avoid the rough seas. The 18ft waves soon became 30ft. waves and most of the cruise we spent trying to avoid the weather. We missed Hubbard Glacier & went to Tracy's Arm instead beautiful waterfalls but I am not a fan of Tracy's Arm. Also missed Sitka but we stayed in Ketchikan longer & stayed in Victoria CA. all day.
The staff in the Neptune Lounge were great and the rest of the ships staff were all smiling & More friendly. Due to a fall on the stairs I got to visit the ships medical center & again they were also very friendly. They called me daily for updates.
We did not go to the MDR we made our cruise reservations 11 months ago but they didn't seat our family at the same table. Didn't bother to try to get another one, we had room service & ate in the lido. We went to the Canaletto restaurant it was just ok, last year on the Osterdam it was great.
Our cabin was wonderful & comfortable. The decor of the ship I don't really remember! I only know that the carpet on the forward stairs between floors 3 & 4 was blue (I laid there for awhile).
Five out of the six of us got seasick! And we had a great family vacation! Less
