Special thanks to HAL guest Marc for sending in the following note and photos of his recent Alaska cruise. Thanks Marc!
My wife Jennifer and I just returned from an Alaska cruise on Oosterdam from June 25 to July 3. It was our first cruise ever and we loved all of it. While in Glacier Bay we got to see a large calving of Margerie Glacier from the bow of the ship. Then in Juneau we took the Alaska’s Whales and Rain Forest Trails excursion and saw a bunch whales thanks to our guides from Gastineau Guiding. We had such a great time, we put in the deposits for ourselves and my in-laws for 2014 to cruise to Alaska when we will celebrate our 30th and my in-laws will celebrate their 50th anniversaries. Here are a few pictures I took along the way during our fantastic time aboard Oosterdam. Thank you Captain Arjen van der Loo and the crew of Oosterdam for a wonderful cruise. — Marc, Gardner, KS
