Great trip from the beginning planning with our Travelocity rep Leanne who is fantastic. Great weather on the land part. Not many meals included on the land tour. Great tundrawilderness fantastic & saw lots of wildlife. All guildes were knowledgeable & very personable and accommodating...comfortable coaches especially on Denali tundra tour. Cruise was delightful. As always Holland America was tops in accommodations, food, & port stops. Ship staff was very helpful & accommodating. Some rain but it did not damper the trip.
I would cruise Holland American again in a minute. And I would definitely do it through Vacation Outlet.
