We chose this trip as a late-season visit to Alaska's Inside Passage. It was a reunion of sorts, as my best friend from high school and his wife of 40+ years booked the same cruise. They took a stateroom across Deck 7 from us, so we four ... Read more

My husband and I did a 7 days Alaskan cruise in May 2017. The weather in Alaska was fantastic for the most part. It rained only 3 days one was on port day. Rest of the days were sunny and warm except when out to sea which was cool. We ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it suited our dates sailing from Vancouver up to SE Alaska and it lasted 7 days and returned back in time to disembark and reach our family wedding later that Saturday afternoon. We had booked an inside ... Read more

We wanted to revisit BC and bolted this cruise on before visiting family in Ontario. Alaska is amazing Spectacular scenery. We particularly enjoyed the expert speakers and the BBC music linked film was memorable. The ship was busy and ... Read more

The Alaska cruise was at the end of our organised tour of Canada. Our tour guide was very upbeat about the Nieuw Amsterdam as it is a much newer vessel than she said was usually found on the Alaska run-old rattlers she called them, so ... Read more

Joined this cruise at the end of a 10 day land tour of Canada (Toronto to Vancouver), frankly underwhelmed by the on board experience; Cabin (large outside - no verandah) was fine, Main dining was good, Gala nights less than ... Read more

We returned to Alaska for another Inside Passage cruise aboard another DAM ship! This time was our first cruise aboard a Signature Class vessel. We were spoiled rotten by our wonderful cabin stewards Gede and Rae. In spite of servicing ... Read more

We hadn't been on a cruise and always wanted to see Alaska so a round trip from Vancouver seemed a good idea, especially as our son lives there so we combined a visit to see him with the cruise. Vancouver is a beautiful city with plenty to ... Read more

Calm, peaceful cruise, with spectacular scenery all around. Alaskan towns were delightful. Excursions for every interest. Or simply walk about and enjoy Alaska. Weather in early May was outstanding, but we were told that the weather ... Read more

This was our 47th cruise. Only the second on HAL. No reason for not using them more other than price/destination offered by other lines seemed to fit our plans better. We've been on NCL 22 times. We really like Celebrity and Princess. ... Read more
