Oosterdam Cruise Review by MeMeTooToo
- Sail Date: June 2012
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
The hot tubs closed at 8:00 and 9:00 at night! We like to finish our night with a soak in the hot tub but that would mean an early dinner and no entertainment after.
At Tracy Arm, we didn't get near the glacier even though there weren't hardly any icebergs. We also saw other cruise ships pass us during a storm. The other cruise ships that passed us were docked in Victoria but we arrived too late to even dock. We wonder if there was something wrong with our the ship.
We did enjoy the live entertainment and the game shows. Our room steward kept our room tidy and left us cute towel animals, and chocolates every night. That was the only pampering we received on the ship. We never had the feeling that the staff cared if the passengers were pleased, needed anything or if they could do anything for us like we felt on our other cruises.
This cruise definitely was not worth the money. I feel bad for first time cruisers who might think that this was a great cruise and cruise again with Holland not knowing they could have a better experience on another cruise line. I hope the cruise industry hasn't changed. If our next cruise is anythng like this one, we're done cruising.

Mount Roberts TramwayWhen on the tram ride, if they would have shoveled a short area, more people could have enjoyed more of the scenery. People come a long way and spend a lot for thier vacations, just a little extra effort could have made for a better experience.View All 228 Mount Roberts Tramway Reviews
