Oosterdam Cruise Review by extex1
- Sail Date: May 2017
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
Activities drew our interest, especially "America's Test Kitchen" and the Naturalists slideshow presentation of the glaciers. We only went to two excursions, Mendenhall Glacier with fish hatchery and salmon bake. The food was out of this world! Of course, we did go into Juneau, Sitka, Ketchikan and Victoria. Our tour of the Castle was so that we'd like to return again, just to see more details of the city.
Ketchikan was the same way.
Food aboard was totally top-notch. It gives one a chance to explore new cuisine. The ship itself was just the right size for us and our lifestyle. Not too large or small. To us, it was more personable. We had such a terrific time, and were quite impressed!

Size-wise, plenty of room for just the two of us, and spacious enough to have a few guests. Four closets, double sinks and two showers and tub made for great storage.
The dressing/make-up vanity was perfect for formal evenings. Holland America is tops!

Mendenhall GlacierMendenhall was also quite fascinating. Completely majestic, just like Hubbard Glacier. You don't quite fully appreciate the size, as well as the environmental aspects, unless you see it for yourself!View All 876 Mendenhall Glacier Reviews

SitkaWe did go to the Sitka Public Library. We were in search of a English-Russian dictionary. My brother wanted one, as his Alaskan souvenier.View All 330 Sitka Cruise Port Reviews

Craigdarroch CastleWe were the last tour of the evening, and was close to dusk when we arrived. By the time we were rounded up, it was already dark. Needed more time to explore the whole castle, as it was quite fascinating!!! Our coach driver did give a riding tour of town that was very informative. Super nice guy, Steve.View All 34 Craigdarroch Castle Reviews
