My husband and I recently booked an Alaska cruise through Peace Frog Travel. Holland America’s Westerdam accommodations were surprisingly spacious, and the condition of the ship can only be described as immaculate.
The scenery in Alaska is amazingly varied and memorable. Just when you think nothing could be more beautiful, turn your head and there’s something else. I was amazed while having lunch by a window on the lido deck one day to have a whale surface, blow and then head back into the depths with one flick of its grand tail. I am only sorry that in my awe, I did not grab my phone to get a picture! We had terrific port visits, and a White Pass train ride to a mountain summit which we will never forget.
Our Golden Anniversary treat was dinner at The Pinnacle Grill, where the chef presented us with an absolutely decadent surprise Happy Anniversary chocolate cake. Our train ride from Seward to the airport in Anchorage at the end of our journey provided us rare glimpses of black bear cubs in a tree, nesting eagles and mountain sheep. We cannot thank Rochelle DeBaun enough for making all the arrangements for our trip of a lifetime. ~Judy & Mike, July 2018
