We enjoyed the great natural beauty of Alaska — we were aboard Nieuw Amsterdam (July 2021), Holland America’s first cruise since the pandemic began and the first ship to cruise into stunning Glacier Bay since 2019. We saw glaciers, bergy bits, many bald eagles, bears, sea lions, otters — so much wildlife. We learned about the native cultures that were decimated when traders and colonizers came in … thankfully, many beautiful traditions are preserved. Everyone — ship’s crew, passengers, locals — was happy to see the travel business start up again. We came early to the embarkation port of Seattle to enjoy a few days in that vibrant city.
