  1. We are starting to plan a return trip to Alaska. Our first one was on the Eurodam and we absolutely loved it. Just saw Oosterdam has a slightly different itinerary and a tad more expensive. So my question is has anyone tried both and which did you prefer and why? We just look forward to relaxing and try the different dining options.
  2. Oosterdam will be at the CT dock from 1300-2100. Also in port are Radiance OTS at the AS dock from 0700-2130, Golden Princess at the FKL dock from 0800-2115, and the Norwegians at the AJ dock with Joy from 0700-1330 and Bliss from 1430-2300. There is not supposed to be as much sun as we have been seeing in Juneau for the last few days but cloudy beats rainy - only a 10% chance of rain. High will be a comfortable 75F/24C and the low 55F/13C. Sunrise is at 3:57 am and sunset at 10:06 pm. The PTZtv webcam can be found at https://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Westerdam on Wednesday.
  3. We used to sail mainly on HAL as it was a great fit with our interests - good itineraries, good food, great staff, and most important of all, ballroom dancing every evening in the Ocean Bar. The last few HAL cruises we did had very little or absolutely no ballroom dancing so we have been sailing other lines that offer dance time. We now see there’s a great 28 night itinerary on Oosterdam that is tempting but we know we will be frustrated if there is no dancing. Can those of you who have been on Oosterdam recently please let us know if the dancing is back? And please don’t count the BB Kings. We have tried to dance to their music but it is not a fit for ballroom and is so loud we can’t tolerate being in their area for more than a few minutes.
  4. We are sailing to Alaska on the Oosterdam and was wondering if anyone has stayed in the large interior cabin J1068? Does it have the corner sectional couch in this room? Any pictures would be appreciated.
  5. Oosterdam will be at the CT dock (hidden behind Millennium) from 1300-2100. Also in port are Royal Princess at the FKL dock from 0800-2115, Millennium at the AS dock from 0700-2130, and the Norwegians trading off the AJ dock with Joy from 0700-1330 and Bliss from 1430-2300. The lovely weather continues with a generally sunny day and a high of 71F/22C and a low of 51F/10C. Sunrise is at 3:52 am and sunset at 10:09 pm. The PTZtv webcam can be found at https://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Noordam on Wednesday.
  6. Has anyone else done Alaska on the Oosterdam? Any tips? I'm a first time cruiser but am sailing with 3 other people who have been on multiples.
  7. On our HAL Alaskan cruise three years ago, we LOVED sitting around the piano bar every evening. Fingers crossed they still have piano bars with great players!
  8. Oosterdam will be at the CT dock from 1300-2100. Also in port are Radiance OTS at the AS dock from 0700-2130, Golden Princess at the FKL dock from 0800-2115, And Norwegian Joy (0700-1330) and Bliss (1430-2300) at the AJ dock. If you liked Monday's weather - good news! Tuesday is going to be almost a carbon copy. 100% chance of rain with a high of 55F/13C and a low of 47F/8C. Sunrise is at 3:50 am and sunset at 10:08 pm. The PTZtv webcam can be found at https://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Westerdam on Wednesday.
  9. Hi, We just got our Alaska cruise cabin assignment and it is Oosterdam 4181. It is an aft facing cabin. We have never had an aft facing cabin. I know a lot people seem to like these. Any tips on what we can expect? Thanks.

  16. Sister and I are taking Mom on Alaska cruise end of June. We have a Neptune Suite reserved. Have been reviewing the Quench Drink package and wonder if it would be worth the cost for us. None of us drink, other than a glass of wine with dinner. I believe there is a coffee maker in our room. We would only drink water or tea...no soda. Seems pricey. I'm wondering what the hours are for the Neptune Lounge? Seems that if we just want water, coffee or tea we could just grab it in the Lounge? We are really looking forward to spending this time together! What other perks do you enjoy while having a Neptune Suite? Thanks to all of you wonderful people for your advice!
  17. Oosterdam will be at the CT dock from 1300-2100. Also in port is Norwegian Bliss at the AJ dock from 1430-2300. Tuesday's weather is going to be much like Monday's.

The PTZtv webcam can be found at https://www.juneauharborwebcam.com/. Next up: Volendam on Friday, May 10.
  18. I have been looking at the deck plans, and I am not sure if I am just missing it but where is the infirmary? i need to have them hold a medicine in their fridge and what floor is the spa on?
  19. I had a lot of trouble finding recent menus for our Oosterdam cruise so I copied the menus when we were on board last week. The first night we copied the actual menu but then we found it easier to copy the menus off the TV. These are first and second nights.
  20. Are sport coats and ties required or optional? Have tie but don't want to buy a suit jacket if I don't need to. Have a reservation for the pinnacle grill and not sure if there are mandatory formal nights. Sent from my LG-H812 using Forums mobile app
  21. So just looking at our upcoming trip and our itinerary - how do I determine if we dock or tender in the Alaska ports? It does not seem to indicate either in the itinerary as I look at it on line. I'm interested to know about Ketchikan and if we tender there. Thank you!!
