The weather was amazing, the seas calm, and we were able to gaze at the gorgeous natural scenery from our balcony.
Canada Place at the Vancouver Cruise Ship Terminal.
Large arrangements of fresh flowers were strategically placed in the public areas of the ship.
One of the many dining rooms...
we dined here for most of our meals during the cruise.
Cozy chairs and lounges which invited relaxation during the voyage.
We opted for room service the first morning...
we really enjoyed sitting on our balcony.
There was so much to see and do on the ship.
One could be busy and engaged all day long.
We were travelling with my husband's family
so we wanted to interact with them as much as possible.
We did not attend many of the entertainment options.
We walked many laps around the deck.
With so much delicious food on offer we needed to be mindful!!
Let's start with some escargots.
a tossed green salad
Succulent lamb chops
You can eat like this every evening if you desire.
There are casual venues where they make burgers, hot dogs, and pizza.
The Lido Market was buffet style
various salads, pastas, sandwiches, soups, and a variety of daily specials.
There are also some higher end dining options where you pay extra to dine.
We dined at the Italian themed Canaletto and Tamarind which served Asian Fusion cuisine.
The Tamarind was my favourite meal of the trip.
We were travelling with other cruise ships.
About 4 or 5 ships were in each port
the small towns were inundated with tourists.
The Holland America Line was recommended to us
in particular the refurbished ship Nieuw Amsterdam
we were suitably impressed.
A popular spot to sample Alaska King and Dungeness Crab.
Mr HB loves crab!
Heritage buildings in Juneau
I was surprised by how many jewelry shops dotted the streets.
Apparently many people buy jewelry as a souvenir when they go on a cruise.
I'll be back with more on the cruise soon so please stay tuned!
