Pleasant negotiations

18 Jun 2018

Discussions were plain and straightforward, and the responses to questions were clear. Not being particularly computer literate, \I don't know that I shall be able to download the information,- I have yet to try. A package in the post would be more reassuring !

Recommended by a friend, as good as she had said.

  • Seward (Anchorage)

    Day 1

    Seward (Anchorage)

    04 Aug 2019

    Beautifully situated on Cook Inlet and surrounded by the Chugach Mountains, Anchorage offers fine restaurants and frontier saloons, museums and art galleries. Visit the Alaska Native Heritage Center, where village elders and apprentices demonstrate the time-honored customs and crafts of the various Native groups. Sample shore excursions: Kenai Guided Fishing; Prince William Sound Glacier Cruise; Redoubt Bay Flightseeing and Bear Viewing. Nearby, Kenai Fjords National Park's steep-sided, glacier-carved valleys give you an up-close look at abundant wildlife. Located on the southeast coast of Alaska's Kenai Peninsula, it is home to the Harding Ice Field, the largest entirely within U.S. borders. Watch for bald eagles, listen to the sounds of thousands of seabirds and share the waters with Stellar sea lions, harbor seals, Dall's porpoises, sea otters and whales. The gateway to the park is the historic town of Seward, whose quaint shops await exploration.

    Haines

    07 Aug 2019

    Nestled on the shores of America's longest fjord, Haines is in a spectacular setting. Fill your day with a float trip through the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve which protects the habitat of the nation's avian symbol, or visit the Sheldon Museum, art galleries and local hops in town. Optional highspeed catamaran access for shopping and excursions in Skagway will also be available.

  • Juneau, Alaska

    Day 5

    Juneau, Alaska

    08 Aug 2019

    Migrating whales, rivers of ice and super fresh seafood capture the hearts of its visitors, although Alaska’s capital city also has a strong mining history. Once the sacred territory of the Auke and Taku tribes, Juneau was named after the gold prospector Joe Juneau.

  • Ketchikan, Alaska

    Day 6

    Ketchikan, Alaska

    09 Aug 2019

    Super-scenic Ketchikan sits on the edge of Revillagigedo Island, surrounded by the verdant Tongass National Forest. Its waters are rich with Pacific salmon, a fact which drew native Tlingit and industrial fishermen here, not to mention an abundance of wildlife. Black bears can often be seen catching fish from passing streams, while birds of prey soar over glacial mountains.

The Ship


The ms Westerdam is the third in Holland America Line's series of Vista-class ships. As such, she embraces the latest industry and environmental technologies such as her use of a diesel-electric power plant for optimal energy efficiency and an Azipod propulsion system. Most of her staterooms have ocean views and many have private verandahs. The theme of ms Westerdam's art collection is Dutch heritage in the New World. Art ranges from paintings of historic Dutch ships, such as Henry Hudson's Half Moon, to a huge Indian silver-overlaid wood palace doorway, a bone tobacco pipe carved in the shape of a woman's head to a collection of 5,000-year-old pre-Columbian carved limestone figures from Ecuador. Contemporary pieces include an original Andy Warhol portrait and signature sculptures by Sedona artist Susanna Holt.

ms Westerdam


Launched: April 2004 | Occupancy: 1,916 passengers

Tonnage: 82,348 tons | Length: 936 ft (285.30 m)
