We just wanted a short get away and this suited us fine. We always like Alaska and for the most part enjoyed the ship. We found the food not all that good and did not really like the entertainment but everything else was fine. We found that in the evening there just was not that much going on, if you did not like BBKing there was not a lot else. I really do not like the TWO pianos but that is what we seem to have now on Holland America. We did go several times to Pinnacle Grill which we think is the best of this type of restaurant on any line we have cruised with. We also like that you can get lunch there, not the variety but much more reasonable serving size . Did the test kitchen but for some reason you can not eat anything you prepare so I guess they throw out all the food we worked so hard on . We took one tour that was very good , the crab feast and loggers show, good value for the money so it you like crab its the one to go on.

Ship has been renovated and looks very nice
