HOLLAND AMERICA CRUISES TO ALASKA
We have sold Holland America cruises for many years. Our customers consider them a tremendous value for money. Holland America is the leader in Alaska which means you enjoy the benefit of their years of experience and depth of staffing. The economy of scale they bring to the market means the best travel value for you.
Competition has brought attractive fares and occassional flash sales with even deeper discounts.
Even if you are not a “cruise person” consider these benefits of a Alaskan cruise:
All cruises include a major glacier viewing experience--either Glacier Bay or Hubbard Glacier. Many also include cruising in College Fjord near Whittier. This means you need not purchase expensive additional glacier cruises seperately.
Port calls are always convenient and usually within walking distance to downtown areas and port calls are always made during prime daylight hours. This means shuttle buses and taxis are usually not necessary and you can go off on your own for the day if you wish.
All meals are included. There is a choice between dining room and the casual buffet-style Lido dining on all ships so you can be as casual as you want to be and save considerably on meal cost for your overall trip. A tip: Bring a day backpack and organize your picnic lunch from the breakfast buffet offerings the day you are in port—now there is no need to return to the ship again before sailing.
Third and fourth passengers sharing the same cabin mean tremendous savings for extended groups or multi-generational family groups.
