Alaska is Great! by reijci

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Great tour and state. This was our third visit to Alaska. Scenery is breathtaking; citizens are very friendly and helpful. We hired non-Holland shore excursions with knowledgeable natives that took us off the routine tourist routes and gave us more insight of their lives and of Alaska.

Nice Quiet and Small Alaskan Cruise by Cruiser23201052

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We have always wanted to visit Alaska and a cruise was the way to do it. We knew we wouldn't be doing this again so we wanted to make the most of it. Many of the cruises or cruise portions of the trips don't visit a lot ports, especially the ones up around Anchorage and Homer. That was really nice to be able to see all of the coastline and the different landscape of Alaska from Ketchikan all the way to Kodiak. We saw the glaciers around Tracy Arm Fjord and also Hubbard Glacier. Those were our favorite places we visited. We don't get around very well and figured a land portion would be more difficult for us. This was a great option to be able to see as much as we could in one trip. The weather we had was absolutely gorgeous! Only a couple rainy days during the entire trip, and we went in early August!

Great cruise, surprisingly good weather! by emailgarylee

Verified Review

Our cabin did not have a refrigerator; a first for our cruises. The weather in almost all ports was good with almost no rain - unusual for an Alaska cruise. The salmon runs has not started yet but we did see a few salmon.

Wonderful, Amazing Alaska Experience, made better with HAL's service! by aby1612

We needed vegetarian food, and there are a lot of menu choices to pick from. The staff remembers your choices, recommend you to pick a table number and book it ahead of time in the middle or by the waters so you get the same staff every day and you can manage your dinners better.

Great Trip by kdguthrie

Enjoyed trip and ports of call. We have traveled to Alaska many times but our first cruise. Would recommend to anyone desiring to see various ports of call away from mainland. Crew and staff friendly and attentive as all we came into contact with were very customer oriented.

Nice ship. Not so much to do on the ship for young adults. They forgot my mom's birthday even after many requests....

Great Experience by kjboray

Verified Review

Really missed good "Tex-Mex" food, and good pizzas (I realize that these foods aren't the main staples of the Netherlands--but the ship's guests are missing out on really tasty food) :-)

14 days to Alaska, expect older passenger crowd and lots of time at sea. by ealmy

Great starter trip for a first time in Alaska. It allows you to sample multiple areas, from very remote, Hoonah, to the big city life, Anchorage.

A Symphony of surprises and delights... by paliuli7

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This voyage was a true banquet for the senses! It was beyond any reasonable expectations and offered surprises and delights for a lifetime never to be forgotten. Each crew member not only performed above and beyond but genuinely expressed appreciation for our presence on 'their ship'. Holland America is to be commended for offering this particular sailing opportunity.
