Alaska on the ms Statendam with Holland America Line

Alaska on the ms Statendam with Holland America Line We have came back from the best holiday ever. We flew to Anchorage Alaska which there we stayed at Westmark Hotel. There we received an envelope which included our key to our room and everything we needed for the few days ahead. It told us which bus to catch, where it took us to the railway. There we boarded the train which took us to Denali. The train was awesome. We had great views from the huge glass windows and roof. The meals were very filling and satisfying. When we came to seeing Mt McLinlay we were all speechless. Wow what a view. We were so lucky that we had the best weather.

We arrived at Deanli were buses were there waiting for our arrival. Once we were on the bus we travelled to McKinlay Lodge where we stayed there for few days. Our bags were already there once we had arrived. They had a great lodge and it was easy to walk around or to catch a mini bus outside your lodge.

The first tour we did was The Wilderness Tour which was a all day event. We had seen heaps of wild life from grizzly bear, dall sheep, moose - it was great. Our bus driver was awesome which made our trip fantastic.

The following day we went on The Canyon Run which was exciting. All the tour guides were all helpful and worked together to make the day a great day. We caught a coach from Denali to Seward were we boarded the ship. We had the best bus driver which made out trip seem short. He was very entertaining. We had a few stops and one long stop were we had a nice buffet lunch.

The Statendam - Wow. Once we arrived everything went so smoothly. Everyone was so happy and friendly. The ship was amazing. Our room was so clean and our bags we already there. Everything from the food, entertaining, activities, shows etc was all well organised. The staff were all so friendly and nothing was a trouble.

We had 3 ports. We already had organised trips booked so we didn't get disappointed incase they had sold out. They were all well planned and all running to plan. We had a great time at all ports.
Like I said before we had the best holiday and was very impressed how it all went so smoothly. I have already been recommending my experience to all my clients and encouraging them to live for the moment not the future.
