I had never been to Alaska and always wanted to go. This was a good opportunity at the right time. The restaurants are very comfortable, the food is terrific, and the service could not be better. One of the things that I really liked was the ability to walk around the ship on deck 3. During the week-long cruise, I managed to walk about 45 miles and returned home without gaining any weight. The day spent in Glacier Bay was a very memorable experience. The glaciers were magnificent, and some were very noisy (much to my surprise). The ability of the ship to get right up close to the face of the glaciers was almost beyond belief. I was able to get many photos that day, and will never forget the experience. All in all, this was right up there with the most enjoyable experiences that I have had, and I'm looking forward to another trip on the Westerdam in Jan, 2017. Read Less

We were already in Europe on an extended vacation to see friends when we saw this cruise pop up at a discount price for last minute--two weeks away. I had cruised about 15 cruises, however, never on Holland America. I was afraid the crowd may be too old for us as we are in our 50's...however, the price and the stops convinced us to go. It was FANTASTIC!! Everything I have heard about Holland was false...they are a 5 star plus line. The cruisers were all ages, from all over the world..a big surprise to us. The food and service was the best in many years...and the Ports to die for...Santorini, Greece is fabulous, Dubrovnik..all of the Greek Islands were interesting and two days in Turkey was absolutely wonderful..we arranged tours with local tour operators and had 4-6 people in our tour groups for two days...met lots of great people and this is definately the best cruise we have ever taken..thanks HAL! We will be back...and to top it off...we won a cruise playing BINGO :-) The MEd cruises are so different as they become your 5 star hotel while we were at port all day and many times exhausted by night..beats a tour with a company any day!
