7 Night Alaskan Explorer With Glacier Bay (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 23, 2015
Ship: Westerdam
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 6159
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The crew was very polite and helpful unlike other cruises we have been on.

Holland America has wonderful food and service.

They average age of the passengers is usually older than other cruise lines, but we enjoy the quit times with not a lot of kids running around.

Our favorite place was Glacier Bay.  The entire trip was worth it just for that. With their smaller ships, they can get closer to the glaciers.
