Our family took a 7-day 'Inside Passage' cruise, round-trip Vancouver. We loved it! It was our first time visiting Alaska, and our second time cruising with HAL.
The scenery was incredible! The Inside Passage of British Columbia/Alaska is absolutely stunning! We loved each port: Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan. Very charming places, lots of time in ports to wander around and take excursions if we chose to! Glacier Bay was so beautiful and peaceful! We saw a lot of wildlife on this cruise, from bears to whales.
The Volendam ship was wonderful! Very nice, and it was a good size to walk around (not too big). It never felt crowded on the ship, and there were lots of indoor spaces to relax, and outdoor viewing areas for the lovely scenery! The food was great! The staff were helpful, friendly, and kind!
Another positive experience with HAL, I will definitely cruise with them again! Alaska is incredible....I hope to visit again in the near future!
