Itinerary: alaska inside passage

I booked this cruise 1 month before leaving. It was a beautiful ship with excellent service. The main dining room food was excellent, but the breakfasts were mediorce to poor. The frozen triangles of hashbrowns served with eggs. The casual dining(buffet)was average.

The entertainment was great if you are 75+. It was all songs and musical reviews such as "Singing in the rain".

The room could not have been better. There was a large verandah deck that provided lots of room.

The only excursion I went on was whale watching tour which was worth every penny.

I had a great time! The service is well above excellant abord ship but the food is disappointing. The fine dining and buffet were excellent. Overall, I would not go on Holland America again because I feel it charges for everything down to bottled water left with ice in-room.
