My family and I were fortunate enough to take a cruise to Alaska in 2009 and it was such a special experience that we wanted to share it with friends and family. We decided that the summer of 2019 was the perfect opportunity to bring the troop of 21 to Alaska cruise with Princess. Nothing brings a family together like travel and that surely was the case for us. We decided on a 7-day Roundtrip Alaska Cruise with Princess from Seattle aboard the beautiful Ruby Princess.

Alaska is one of the most breathtaking natural wonders I’ve experienced. Sailing roundtrip from Seattle on the 7 Day Alaskan Explorer cruise with Holland America Line on the beautiful Eurodam was the best choice for my first Alaska cruise. As I pour over the dozens of photos I am so moved by the majesty of our 49th state.

What an awesome opportunity it was to sail aboard the luxurious Holland America Eurodam. We sailed the Alaska Inside Passage with endless miles of untouched wilderness. The Eurodam is a very elegant midsized ship with lots to offer. This ship is beautiful with very comfortable beds and the staterooms are immaculate. Sipping coffee in the Crow’s nest as you read your favorite book or use the interactive screens to plan you next cruise as good as it gets! With a balcony stateroom, we were able to view sea life while sitting on the balcony and also view Margerie Glacier while cruising through Glacier Bay National Park.

My sister and I have wanted to go to Alaska for a long time, inspired by our late grandmother who was able to tick it off her bucket list before she passed. This was a sort of memorial trip, wanting to see what she had loved and dreamed of seeing for so much of her life.
