Relaxing, enjoyable; pleasant stateroom

Chose it by going online and reading reviews. I was attracted by the fact that there were no children, no gimmiks, no casinos. The food, while pleasant, wasn't spectacular, as I'd been told happens on a ...

Elegance and pampering at sea

I've always wanted to cruise Alaska but hate the large, 5000+ passenger cruise ships. Being a fan and loyal passenger with Viking River cruises, it was a no brainer to book with them when they announced their foray ...

Amazing experience with Holland America!

Our Alaska cruise on the Westerdam was fantastic. We had 3 generations, with teenagers being the youngest of the group, so I was a bit nervous hearing about the usual demographics of Holland America cruisers. To my ...
