Alaska is one of the most breathtaking natural wonders I’ve experienced. Sailing roundtrip from Seattle on the 7 Day Alaskan Explorer cruise with Holland America Line on the beautiful Eurodam was the best choice for my first Alaska cruise. As I pour over the dozens of photos I am so moved by the majesty of our 49th state.
Alaska cruises are magical experiences filled with wildlife sightings, incredible glaciers, and scenery to take your breath away. However, most cruise lines only explore the coastline and then turn back to port. For those who wish to dig deeper into Alaska and go further, Holland America’s Land+Sea Journeys brings you into Denali National Park and Preserve. Located well in the interior of Alaska, Denali is the best place to explore forests, frozen tundra, and glaciers while catching site of bears, eagles, Dall sheep, moose, and caribou. For easy access, just outside the gates of the park is Holland America’s resort in Alaska, McKinley Chalet Resort, with large yet intimate upscale accommodations. See why guests love the modern amenities and comfortable accommodations located right at the edge of the wilderness.
The promise of whale watching, glaciers, and astounding natural beauty are just some of the many things to experience and see on an Alaska cruise. When it comes time to book, it can get a little tricky trying to decide when to go, along with all the other decision you have to make. Alaska cruises run from May to September, and what you see and do can be impacted by the date in which you choose to take your vacation. Here’s a handy little guide to help you decide on the best time to cruise to Alaska.Continue reading

What an awesome opportunity it was to sail aboard the luxurious Holland America Eurodam. We sailed the Alaska Inside Passage with endless miles of untouched wilderness. The Eurodam is a very elegant midsized ship with lots to offer. This ship is beautiful with very comfortable beds and the staterooms are immaculate. Sipping coffee in the Crow’s nest as you read your favorite book or use the interactive screens to plan you next cruise as good as it gets! With a balcony stateroom, we were able to view sea life while sitting on the balcony and also view Margerie Glacier while cruising through Glacier Bay National Park.
