- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Neptune Suite with Verandah
The crew are all wonderful, full of smiles and very helpful regardless of what the question may be. We had a unique situation in that we recently lost my mother in law and she had wanted a burial at sea after being cremated. We worked with the ship prior to boarding to ensure we knew what we could expect and they were absolutely phenomenal in guiding us through the process. Once on board we worked with Inge, the Concierge in the Neptune Lounge, who made sure everything went beautifully. We cannot thank her enough for all she did.
I have seen people comment about the ship vibrating, or that you can hear the engines. For those who may not quite understand, it's a moving vehicle. It is going to sway, and rumble, and vibrate. That was actually comforting to me, because if I could hear it and feel it I knew it was moving and taking us to the next amazing location. I am prone to motion sickness, so while many people say "You can't even feel it moving", yeah, you actually can and even though the crew indicated we had calm seas on this particular voyage, I did have to take Dramamine a couple times which fixed me right up.
All that is left to say is thank you Holland America for making our first cruise so perfect.

Juneau4-hour jeep rental with pre-loaded itinerary in GPS. Good value as we were able to tour the glacier and other attractions at our own pace.View All 1,528 Juneau Cruise Port Reviews

VictoriaWe chose to walk to downtown and get a bite to eat. It's a bit of a hike, about a thirty minute walk, but interesting to walk through the neighborhoods and see how the locals live. We had a nice dinner sort of off the beaten path and went back to the ship, as we didn't have much time in port to do too much else.View All 1,286 Victoria Cruise Port Reviews
