July 2016 - 7 Night Alaska Inside Passage (Vancouver Roundtrip) Cruise on Nieuw Amsterdam
Alaska is huge and gorgeous, not to be missed. I was glad to finally see Glacier Bay while there are still some glaciers left. With lots of light and very little rain, I imagine mid-July is the best time to go. I enjoyed each of the ports, though we arrived in Juneau too late to do several of the things I hoped to get to.
The ship is beautiful, cabins spacious (I had the cheapest one) and the service was excellent. The food was very good, with a few exceptions. I especially liked the daily change in ethnic (mostly Asian) foods at the Lido buffet. I was not happy with some of the entertainment, activities and general culture onboard, but I think that's because they have to appeal to such a wide range of tastes, and of course they are always encouraging you spend more money.
