Our first Northern Exposure....... Alaska 2010
Our experience on the Amsterdam was extremely pleasant. We chose the late dining time, and thoroughly enjoyed our dining mates. We were fortunate enough to have a table for six by a port side window, and were treated to a "whale" show more than once while dining.
In general we found the food, service, entertainment, and accommodations to be exceptional, and completely enjoyable. We enjoyed our Italian meal at the Canaletto, and some very relaxed times doing jigsaw puzzles in the Explorations Cafe.
The informational narrations provided by the naturalist while passing the glaciers in Glacier Bay were most More interesting. Our experiences in Skagway, Anchorage, Juneau, and Victoria Island will long be remembered.
We also enjoyed Homer, Kodiak, and Sitka.
Note: some of the names of places that I mention may not be correct because I am writing this a year after our cruise, and I am relying on my failing memory.
We enjoyed our cruise so much that we are looking forward to sailing on HAL to visit more interesting places. Less
Cabin review: HH3400 Large Outside Stateroom (fully obstructed views)
We were perfectly pleased with our cabin. We might not choose an 'attached' cabin again so that we can have a little more flexibility to sit.Read All Large Outside Stateroom (fully obstructed views) (HH) Reviews >>
