Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2018
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Large Interior Stateroom

The Grand Alaskan appealed to me as I had plenty of time and was in hurry to get home.

The itinerary was brilliant, loved it, all the ports and glaciers.

The ship is beautiful, food and service terrific,

The entertainment well that's another story, if you like a bit of nightlife Holland America is not for you, there is no disco, karioki, no band.

All the bars were closed by midnight.

I reckon the average age was about eighty, navigating around walking frames, mobility scooters and wheelchairs was a challenge.

I felt like i was on a floating nursing home.

Holland America is second to Cunard.

Never Again, Holland America.

The ultimate drinks package is not ultimate, they limit you to fifteen drinks per day,

which is not a lot on a ship with nothing to do and then they slug you.

If you like a drink a laugh and stay up late,

Stay away from Holland America
