Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin: Lanai Ocean-View Stateroom

Chose this cruise as it seemed to be one of the few to visit Glacier Bay. With climate change we found the glaciers disappointing especially after seeing the ones in Argentina.

The Volendam is a small ship and we were again disappointed by the entertainment, it wasn't a patch on larger ships ( as you might expect), but was outshone by Fred Olsen which is a similar size.

We found the drinks expensive and didn't like the 15% on top for service when we had already paid a general daily service charge.

Cabin Review

Lanai Ocean-View Stateroom

Cabin CA

Cabin adequate size, but lacked drawer space. Bathroom had a full size walk in shower. The Lanai cabin worked well on sea days.

Port Reviews


The town was a bit disappointing and as the weather was not good, we didn't take a tour


Another old and interesting town. Had a wander round and saw the salmon running and visited a hatchery. The old houses built over the creek are very interesting
