Alaska lovely

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The best part of the cruise is Glacier Bay.  The downside was the touristy portion and disappointment in Juneau.  Holland America is a reasonably priced cruise line and we have no other to compare it to but it seems they are out to extract every penny they can from you.  This was our third cruise with them and we felt the entertainment on this cruise was below expectation. However the food was good and the service always perfect.

Cabin / Stateroom
This cabin was slightly smaller than other verandah rooms we have had or so it seemed.

Don't bother with the tram ride.
Cruise Glacier Bay
Sitka, Alaska
Excursion around Sitka was very nice. A lovely port.
Ketchikan, Alaska Was pleasantly surprised with Ketchikan and it would have been better to have known its artistic culture before rather than after the stop.
Victoria, British Columbia
We did not get off the ship as we had been to Victoria before and it was nighttime- the ship arrived late and was going to depart earlier than listed.


Yes, use side elevators and try for a centrally located room to be closer to both ends. On a trip to Alaska perhaps a verandah room is not necessary in the cooler months. Westerdam will go into dry dock for upgrade.
