Alaska Cruise- May 6-13- Holland America

Year: 2018

Inside passage from Vancouver on board the Westerdam with Holland America.

After a day relaxing at sea we stopped at Juneau where I enjoyed the Mendenhall Glacier Explorer excursion and did a quick hike up to Nugget Falls.

The following day was a stop in Skagway where I enjoyed the amazing landscape while on the White Pass Summit Scenic Railroad- unfortunately the Yukon Expedition portion was sold out however this was still a wonderful excursion.

The following day was at sea where we cruised around Glacier Bay and were lucky to get very close to the glaciers watching the ice calving (pieces falling from the glacier). Did see a whale breaching but did not have my camera ready!

Our last stop was Ketchikan where I took the tour to the Saxman Native Village and Totem Park- very touristy however some good history especially about the totem poles and their meanings.

A last relaxing day at see before arriving back in Vancouver to say farewell.
