We went on our 2nd Alaskan cruise (the first was 11 years ago) with my brother, sister-in-law, & 2 nephews this past week. It was their 1st cruise and I think they liked it. In my opinion, Holland America has the best food. We were blessed with beautiful weather on this cruise and 11 years ago. I think we actually brought the nice weather home with us.
Juneau: (where good friends of another sister-in-law, picked us up and gave us the royal treatment of taking us to Mendenhall Glacier and to their lovely home and out on their boat - boy, were we ever spoiled!
