Excellent Itinerary by rorybailey

Verified Review
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Great itinerary. Ship was something to be desired to say the least. But we were in it for destinations so took it with a grain of salt. Service was great. Made it out to Cape Horn- that doesn't always happen on this type of itinerary.

Excellent Cruise on a smaller cruise ship. Excellent Itinerary. Right amount of Ports versus Cruise Days. Amazing sailing through Strait of Magellan and Beagle Channel with all of its Glaciers. We had a GREAT time!

Learned so much about South Ameria!! by buckml67

Verified Review
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
We really enjoyed the cruise, even though the length was longer than any other we have done. The staff were all very responsive, friendly and competent. The food in all the locations was excellent. We like Holland America because it is mostly older people who are often very interesting and not LOUD!!

Alaskan Cruise by cruisestogether

Verified Review
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Overall, I had a great time on the cruise and I feel like I saw a lot of Southeastern Alaska. I would definitely consider seeing Denali prior to or after the cruise in the future.

Read all the information left outside your door or on your bed - all worth the time to be up to date on activities etc. Request a statement the evening of the last night at sea, it gives you time to check for errors and have them corrected before the final statement is processed.

Leave notes in your room for the steward to get things you need (i.e. extra pillow, more paper)

Eat every meal you can in the dining room. The food is amazing. Especially dinner.
