Additional details

Sail Date: Aug 2017
Cabin: Large Ocean-View Stateroom

Seeing Alaska was on our bucket list and the Zaandam fit our schedule and budget. We loved everything: the ports, size of the ship, nice size of stateroom, good food, wonderful staff. They also offered $20 laundry service for anything fit in one fairly good-sized bag. Self-service laundry was available too. We were surprised to see a priest on board. He informed us that Mass was offered every day and would be noted on the daily itinerary. He said all Holland America ships have a priest on-board. Jewish service was also offered on Friday. Other thoughts - delicious sugar-free desserts, smooth handling of people and passports in and out of Canada, easy transition of passengers and luggage to "land" portion of trip into Denali. We would definitely go again!

Things I might like to see improved:

More availability in reservation times for open dining
