Sail Date: Sep 2019
Cabin: Interior Stateroom

I selected this for the land tour as we had never been to inland Alaska. Was what I had hoped for. Weather excellent for land, but some rain on cruise. Included Excursions , especially Denali bus and train to Anchorage were spectacular. The road in Denali is fast falling away, so may not be available for too long. Saw moose, bears, caribou, sheep.

Accommodations were as expected, lodges fine, Anchorage hotel a little older and tired.

Holland America’s logistics are excellent, including meeting our plane at 2:30 am. Luggage always where it was supposed to be. Check in was 5 minutes.

What’s expected as an inside, high deck. Clean, a little tight, but ok

Walked around, small but Alaska port. No big stores!

Gardens very interesting and unique. Hatchery mostly self guided.
