June 2016 - Westerdam to Alaska - Inside Passage

Alaska on the Westerdam

A cruise on one of Holland America's Ships is always Excellent. I rate them excellent because they are always "trying" to do the best. Kind, friendly, hard working people trying to make our cruise enjoyable.

Carnival Magic

September 2014 - Carnival Magic to Caribbean - Western

First Galveston Cruise

If driving, reserve your parking ASAP. Covered parking is limited.

25+ cruises on 5 cruise lines.

As for the cruise. Stayed in a Spa Balcony stateroom, third stateroom from the front of ship. The Magic is one of the larger ships and has a very nice layout. We never got the felling that we had to walk from one end of the ship to the other, although we did. With over 3000 guest we did not experience crowds.

The ship was clean and our stateroom was well kept. Enjoyed  the Spa a couple of times. 

We endured the life boat drill in the theater, sat in the most uncomfortable seats that were flat bottoms and straight up backs. Last trip to the theater. Keeping in mind that Carnival is a Fun Ship, the food was very good.

Will cruise this ship again.

mkldkr's Tips

Cruise Glacier Bay - As the Captain put it, "we cut donuts in front of the Glacier". Nice!!
Westerdam Westerdam - When booking, remember, Holland allows unrestricted smoking on balconies. Even cigars. If you do not smoke, sometimes your balcony is unusable.
