  1. We’ve cruised Alaska twice, the first time was our first cruise ever and it was like a million years ago on a Carnival ship, the second one was on Holland America’s ms Volendam – now that was an amazing cruise! The service was second to none! We’ve cruised on Carnival, Princess, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Norwegian and then this one and Holland America wins hands down!
