Alaska the Beautiful
"Ketchikan was our first rainy day and the all day excursion we had reserved was cancelled so we made due with walking around and exploring and rushing back to the ship to eat a quick lunch to meet up with our excursion for the lumberjack show.to be able to get so close and have the ship slowly turn and spend most of the day there just takes your breath away...."Read More

With all the flight cancellations happening this Spring it was nice to drive to Vancouver BC and avoid flying. We uploaded our USA passports and Covid vaccination documents on the Arrive Canada online site as required although no Canadian official ever asked to look at our documentation. There was an awful delay when we were boarding because the Holland America employee insisted that we have our ...

cruise chosen as part of a SAGA Alaskan Adventure tour. Ship is very comfortable, the crew friendly , very helpful and communicative. The primary aim of the cruise is to view the wonderful scenery and watch out for wildlife. The dining room staff are excellent and the food nice, but not outstanding . The main failing was the quality of the evening entertainment, the theatre was the ...

Anniversary celebrated on day 3, Juneau. Saw Alaska for 1st time. We picked this itinerary because of simple Vancouver departure and return location, and wanted no more than 7 days. HAL offered the ideal itinerary and made a compelling last minute booking offer (we found this 60 days prior to) Dates worked for an easy day ahead and day after in Vancouver with only a week off work. Would ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Our first cruise, saved and planned as was supposed to be our big special holiday and feel let down by Holland America, they were recommended by family members who raved about how great they were but not a good impression. Most staff amazing, helpful and friendly. Then go to get a mojito from pool bar and rude, patronising and belittling bar waiter left me in tears, I could not return back to the ...

Cruised Alaska. Had the most amazing weather and time. The Koningsdam is a beautiful ship. I understand it is a medium size ship, but it feels small. Had a balcony cabin on the 11th floor. It was clean and like any other balcony on a cruise ship. Bathroom is small, shower has a real door which is nice, toilet placement is stupid. You will understand. The beds are narrow, short, but ...

Loved Alaska and we were lucky enough to have sunshine until the last port of Ketchikan. I have a bazillion beautiful pictures and memories for a lifetime. If I could separate the ratings, I would give the itinerary a 5 and the ship a 4. We did the Tracy Arm excursion where you get off the ship onto an excursion boat out in the middle of the water and spend 7 hours exploring and then meet up ...

We chose this cruise because we would not require airfare as we live I. The departure city of Vancouver. Wanted to try a newer ship, I thought HAL would have fewer children and better COVID protocols as they cater to an older clientele. This was my first cruise since Covid. I was very surprised at the general lack of cleaning around the ship, never saw any staff sanitizing elevators, ...

Travelled to alaska on Holland America. First, this cruise line has zero entertainment during the day. With over 3 sea days, choose another ship with daily entertainment. Night time entertainment was limited. The comedian was on for half an hour. The Lincoln Center stage music happened maybe twice and lasted for half an hour. Went on the train trip in Skagway. 10 minutes into the trip, the engine ...
