  1. Thanks! Who ever thought something like this would be necessary in Alaska?
  2. We’ll be getting on the Westerdam as you’re getting off. I’m somewhat concerned with the smoke from the fires as well, because I have asthma. In addition, we are traveling with a large party (13 people), and one child has a lung disease. This is our first trip to Alaska, and it will be very disappointing if the scenery is hard to see. I feel horrible for the Alaskan citizens as well. It’s a terrible situation all the way around.
  3. Looking forward to the rest of your review. We board the Westerdam a week from Saturday, so I’m excited to hear everything you have to say!
  4. So happy to hear this! We sail on the Westerdam Seward to Vancouver on July 21. We are still trying to figure out what to do in Ketchikan and Haines. Any recommendations?
  5. Does anyone know what the biggest size table is? Could 13 fit at two tables somehow?
  6. Thanks everyone. I know on the Carnival boards they are published pretty regularly. I just wanted to ask if our party of 13 would be able to sit all at one table, or if we will be split in half. I guess I will just have to find out when we get on board. 🙂
  7. Does anyone have the email for the Maitre’d on the Westerdam? I tried doing a search but nothing came up.
  8. I’m happy to hear the taxis are reliable. Do you know if you can call the night before and arrange an early morning pickup? Do they take credit cards?
  9. So if we take the train the luggage is transported separately? And it is taken right to the cruise ship? That sounds really convenient! I’d probably be a nervous wreck until I actually saw my luggage on the ship!
  10. We, (a party of 6), are flying into Anchorage, spending the night at an AirBandB house, and then taking the train at 6:45 am the next morning to Seward to get on the Westerdam. What is is our best transportation option from the airport to the house, and from the house to the train station very early the next day? I’ve heard conflicting info on whether or not Uber is available, and have read reviews that the taxi service in Anchorage is not reliable. If we miss our train, there isn’t another one that day, and we will probably miss our cruise. Any suggestions? Also, what is the best option for getting from the train station in Seward to the cruiseport? Thanks!
