  3. Amsterdam
9 to 16 JULY 2016 ......This was my third cruise. My wife and I really enjoyed the time aboard. Our cabin was 5177 so it was an inside room with no windows, which I like for sleeping. Our cabin steward "Riza" was very good about keeping our cabin picked up and towels and bed kept orderly. My wife just loved the towel that was folded different each day into a different shape of some type of animal. We had plenty to do on board and we enjoyed the shows and other special activities. The top two for us was the "marriage game" and "Name that tune". The list of Shore excursions was great so we had many options but the only negative I have with that is that the time in port of calls seemed to be so rushed. The cruise up into Glacier bay was just wonderful and interesting and we was given a map of the area in our rooms the day before so we knew where and what we was watching on deck while the PA system announced each Glacier. Initial embarkation process is very chaotic as well as the drill for the life boats but over all we had a very good vacation. we are going to be very pro-active with our friends about they must take a trip to Alaska and HAL would be a good choice for cruise line.
