Additional details

Sail Date: Aug 2014
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

This was our first cruise. We decided, with the recommendation of Charlene, our AAA travel agent in Minneapolis. to do the D3C "Double Denali" sea/land tour and were not disappointed.

I was a bit concerned at first after reading some of the reviews about the Oosterdam a couple of weeks before our trip but have nothing bad to say, in fact, I found the ship, captain and crew to be outstanding!

This is a two part trip. First a sea cruise from Vancouver to Seward and then land tours via bus or rail through Denali and ending in Fairbanks.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Cabin VC

Best bet is to choose the land side (starboard) for view of land on northbound cruise. Veranda gives a chance to be outside with good privacy rather share observation deck.Stateroom attendants making sure you had no needs and cabin was spotless.Up towards bow give opportunity to see dolphins riding the ships wake.
