HAL still a great experience!

   Just completed our sixth HAL cruise . . . this time Alaska on the Westerdam.

   Ship very well maintained.  Staterooms small (like everywhere) but well planned.  Meals remain a 'cut above' other 5-Star lines.  Staff very good and the true difference on Holland America.

   Inside passage on Alaska was a great experience.  Glacier Bay was probably the highlight, though we also had an excellent whale watch trip and enjoyed Ketchikan, Sitka and Victoria.

Plan to spend the day on deck . . . you need to have a 360 degree view!

Victoria, British Columbia
Walk into town and enjoy the inside harbor and nearby british pubs.


Eat in the 'formal' dining room each evening. It only takes a few minutes to dress up - but it makes the cruise a very special event.
