Question MS Amsterdam Questions for end of June2016

Does the Amsterdam have 24 hour Water/Coffee Station?
If so, where is it located?

Do they Dock or Tender in at Port of Sitka?

Where is a good choice to eat on board to celebrate special occasions?

Any suggestions or comments about this ship would be helpful.
Thanks
M n O

Water and coffee are provided 24 hours/day in the Lido or through room service.

In Sitka you may want to do a "City Tour". This will get you to the Russian Church and other areas of the town and be guided by someone who knows the history.

Don't do a bear watching tour. It's the wrong time of year for it and there will be few bears at the rivers mouths, shoreline and watching stations.

I'm not sure if it's still offered but I greatly enjoyed the Raptor Center. Great education on eagles and other birds of prey in the area.

Sorry, I haven't been on Amsterdam.

Take care,
Mike

Smile Water/Coffee Stations

Thanks for the advice on Sitka. It is good to know that it could be the wrong season in certain areas for Bears. But I am guessing if they were looking for Berries maybe they can be seen, but we will focus on the town itself and History seems to be our interest as well as what is easy to get around to if we don't book an excursion.

I know the question about whether there are any water/coffee stations sounds silly after being on many cruises of other brands. But this will be our first Holland America Brand and thought to ask.
We have only been on 1 ship that the only water and coffee for self serve was in a little café inside the ship. The water was in pitchers and the coffee was in thermal carafes. We looked on all decks and asked and that was it.

We are looking forward to seeing Sitka for a change.
I still wonder if it is Tender in or Dock. I will guess Tender.
Thanks for your reply.
