This was a weeklong Grandma and Granddaughter getaway leaving the day after school ended. It was my first Holland cruise having done all previous with Norwegian. We enjoyed our balcony cabin, indulged in breakfast very day in our room, attended every show, and had the "Le Cirque" experience. We appreciated the covered and windless pool area with gourmet burger bar in the afternoon. This is especially welcome on cloudy days (Alaska after all). We had manicures, did shore excursions and sat out on our balcony through Glacier Bay. Service is wonderful in cabin and dining rooms. Food is delicious, Formal nights were a nice way to dress for dinner and feel special. We chose the "anytime dining" option which worked for us. My granddaughter was thrilled and we made some wonderful memories together.
