7 Night Alaskan Explorer With Glacier Bay (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 07, 2014
Ship: Westerdam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 7124
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 3 years ago

   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.

Ship Tip

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.

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