Amazing, breathtaking, inspiring, stunning, life-changing … those are just some of the words we’ve heard Holland America Line guests use to describe Alaska.
Even if you’ve never been to Alaska, it’s easy to see why it is one of the most beautiful parts of the world. From colossal glaciers and snow-capped mountains to wildlife like whales and bears, each cruise and Land+Sea Journey is sure to feature incredible scenery just waiting to photographed.
This was an awesome trip. Something we would like to do again. — Karen and Tim
Here is one of my favorite photos from our Holland America cruise in Glacier Bay. It is a group of kayakers at the base of the Margerie Glacier showing it’s immense size. — Sam Giammo
The Amsterdam passed us just after 6 am on its way to Ketchikan while we were fishing for salmon. — Bryan Ringos
Alaska is so much more than rugged terrain, jagged mountain tops and unparalleled beauty that will take your breath away. It is many things to many people. Mountains, valleys, flat marshlands, frozen tundra, shoreline, lakes, rivers, desert and much more. The diversified landscape is all that matters for survival in such a place. This land will inspire you, nurture you, sustain you, love you, hate you, eat you, and bury you. It will stir you. It is a force to be reckoned with, a force that lodges itself in your very core, and is difficult to release. — Mariner Cathy Robinson
I took this sunset picture from the rear of the Rotterdam on my Alaska cruise. — Paul Martinez

I was on Zaandam and able to snap this photo of Statendam at John Hopkins Inlet in Glacier Bay. — Doug Weeks
We had such a wonderful time on our Alaska Cruise on the ms Volendam in September of 2012. My husband Vincent, my sister Yvonne, and I enjoyed every minute. These pictures are from the top of Mount Roberts (we took the tram), a canoeing excursion to Davidson Glacier and Glacier Bay. — Teresa Smith
This is my favorite photo from our Holland America cruise to Alaska this past summer. My husband took the picture while we were in Sitka. You cannot take a “bad” picture in Alaska! I am using this picture as my screen saver on my computer, so everytime I open my computer I am reminded of the wonderful cruise we had! — Judy Soenksen
My wife and I cruised to Alaska for the fifth time for our 20th anniversary. We had another wonderful trip, our stewards and crew were great as usual, they went out of their way to make our anniversary special. — Jim
