Would definitely advise people to enjoy the beauty of Alaska thru Holland America Cruise Lines. We booked thru Hawaiian Airline Cruises with ease and satisfaction.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Some of the foods served in the Main Dining room were to “ fancy” for my taste and the food served on the Lido Dining area is good.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Guess the pools, rock climbing, etc are good for younger people but not for me personally.
