7 Night Alaskan Explorer With Hubbard Glacier (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 19, 2006
Ship: Oosterdam
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The cruise is a beautiful, Alaska has some of the most gorgeous scenary, so lush and green. As far as this cruise with Holland America, it's tailored to the older possilbly retired crowd or for those who like to relax on their trip. Not a lot of activities for the younger folks. Although the service is excellent, the food needs some improvement, but their leisure dining plan is a plus allowing for flexibility in the time you eat at the dining hall. I was sad that we arrived at the Victoria, B.C. Canada port at night so we could not appreciate the city and most of the shops were closed, we'll probably have to return some other time. And getting on and off the ships upon boarding or at the port was very organized and ran smoothly.

Would have prefered to be at the port during the day. Parliment building, Empress Hotel and Craigdrroch Castle

Less to see than in the other ports, a must though is Saxman Village, one of the largest collection of totem poles.

St. Micheal's Russian Cathderal, Castle Hill where Alaska was purchased from Russian. The downtown Sitka area.
Don't Miss: Castle Hill
