July 2015 - Westerdam to Alaska - Inside Passage
I picked Holland-America line because they have a reputation of being the more elegant of the cruise ships. The service was extremely good, the food to die for, the venue was, indeed, very elegant. We had a cabin with a veranda and that was a good choice.
We had some reservations about the excursions, especially in Juneau. It cost $65 if you buy a bus tour to Mendenhall Glacier and a ticket on the tramway to Mount Robert- if you go out on the dock the same is $10 for the tour to the Glacier and $10 for the tramway.
Another thing that they didn't tell you is the hidden charges of close to $12/per day, per person for "housekeeping", that is making your bed, clean the bathroom aso. I don't know what other cruise liners do, but it would have been better being upfront about this '"xtra" charges.
