The Most Amazing Family Memories by afpirazzini

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

I again want to bring up the dinner staff (Paulus, Mark Dig, Yohan), our stewards (Paul and Nicky), and Billboard On-board entertainment (Andy and Polina) for making our experience one that our family will never forget. We needed a great experience after the recent loss of my father and this is exactly what we were hoping for so thank you Holland America.

Great Cruise Choice! by JPREV1

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The suite was well worth the extra cost. The most enjoyable, and unexpected aspect of the cruise was the terrific entertainment. This includes on board-musicians, magician and comedian, as well as the excursions. We did excursions in Skagway, Ketchikan and Juneau and each time our guide was superior or even better. We learned so much more than we anticipated. Highest recommendation possible!

Wonderful Alaskan Cruise by mtvisser

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

My first cruise and first visit to Alaska were all amazingly beautiful. We had extraordinary sunshiny days and tolerable temperatures. Only one rather rough day at sea (our only rainy day) but the ship provided lots of entertainment choices and good food. Since there are no roads in and out of most of the ports of call, cruising Vancouver to Seward is the best way to go. Met some great people along the way and had a great experience!

Amazing scenery! by evonnesue1941

This truly was an amazing trip. In addition to the ports we Loved the day we cruised through Glacier Bay. We pulled up parallel to a large glacier and sat there for about 1 1/2 hours giving us plenty of time to see not only small pieces slough off but hear the thunderous cracking and witnessing a larger portion calve off. I would recommend the Alaskan Inside passage cruise heartily. The only downside was the disorganized way that the Vancouver embarkation & disembarkation is accomplished. They shouldn't try to have 4 cruise ships (1 wasn't Holland America) embarking & disembarking at the same time. We also had difficulty when we disembarked as we had a shuttle (not through the cruise line) to take us back to our hotel. No one seemed to know where we needed to catch it. We went to where it dropped us off & were told to go to door D, which was all large buses. From there we were told to go to Door A which turned out to be for taxi service, then Door E which was excursions????????????? Finally found someone who guided us to the street level where we got the assistance we needed.

This was a wonderful trip. Very comfortable state room. Ports of call were very interesting. Food was excellent. Only hassle was getting off the ship in Vancouver. The problem was with Canada Place not with the Westerdam.

Use the side glass elevators on port and starboard--they're much faster than the regular elevators!

Had open seating for dinner and that made it very convenient. However, we felt it took too much time so ate at the buffet mostly. Some better choices in the dinning room, but the food in the buffet was great. All drink purchases had an added gratuity (15% I think), so no need to tip.

For Open seating, we just booked a reservation from day to day and never had to wait to eat in the dining room.
