IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT IT WAS SUNNY AND IN THE HIGH 60'S THE

SECOND WEEK IN MAY. THE SHIP IS IN GOOD REPAIR AND NO PROBLEMS

WERE NOTED DURING THE 7 DAY CRUISE. SERVICE IN THE NEPTUNE SUITE

SECTION WAS PERFECT AS ALWAYS. FOOD WAS TYPICAL HOLLAND AMERICA .  THE ONLY NEGATIVE WAS THE LONG CUSTOMS AND SECURITY LINES AT THE VANCOUVER AIRPORT. NEXT TIME WE WILL GO FROM

SEATTLE.

AT VANCOUVER

Ship Tip

ON YOUR SECOND DAY TAKE TIME TO TOUR THE WHOLE SHIP. IT WILL TAKE A FEW HOURS BUT IT'S WORTH THE TIME. FROM THE CROWS NEST ON DECK 11 TO THE MANHATTAN DINING ROOM ON DECK 2, THERE IS SO MUCH TO SEE AND DO. COOKING DEMOS, POOLSIDE ACTIVITIES, LATE
NIGHT DINING. IT HELPS TO PLAN ACTIVITIES IN ADVANCE

AIRPORT SUPPLIES FREE LUGGAGE CARTS, PORTERS CHARGE $10.

DO THE PLUNGE ONBOARD AT DECK 9 AFT POOL. IT'S FUN
3 out of 5
NOT MANY ACTIVITIES OR SITES HERE. NO WHALE WATCHING EXCURSIONS SO PLAN THOSE FOR SKAGWAY OR JUNEAU.TAKE THE FREE SHUTTLE BUS AND SEE WHAT OTHERS PAID $25 TO SEE ON THE TOUR BUS. EAT ON THE SHIP, MCDONALDS 1/4 POUNDER IS $5.29, NOT THE MEAL JUST THE BURGER.
