The cruise to Alaska was out of this world, breathtaking sights, informative discussions and interacting with other seniors: at the lectures, at meals and off-shore adventures. Way to go!

This trip is the perfect opportunity to see once-in-a-lifetime sights such as glaciers, learn about the native culture of our 49th state and be exposed to the serenity of Alaska's inner passage. The cruise offers a relaxing environment, great meals, lots to do on sea days and the ease of not having to travel and unpack between sights or ports. John is an experienced, very knowledgeable leader who conveys the spirit of living in Alaska as well. Definitely a 5 star experience.

The 15 day Coastal Alaska: Glacial Waters, Breathtaking Shores tour was above my expectations. The knowledge of our guide, the scenery, wildlife and ship accommodations made this an unforgettable first Road Scholar trip.

An outstanding adventure with an excellent leader who made the history and the nature of Alaska come to life. The selected itinerary and use of Holland America Cruise line provided comfort and accessibility for the participants. Our ports-of-call experiences were enhanced by the educational meetings, where our group leader, John Scheerens, provided in-depth handouts, power point presentations and his excitement his home state of 30+ years.

This is a great adventure. Our guide, John is a native of Alaska. We got to experience parts of Alaska that ships tours don't have.

Excellent cruise. Everything handled very well. The ship staff were great. The sights and ports of call were excellent. I have only one complaint... Ever since I returned home I have been getting calls and mail for various vacation packages and cruises and I am not interested in any of them. Maybe this is Holland America doing this but I did not sign up for any of this and it is an intrusion on my privacy. Be forewarned.

If you want to see what coastal Alaska small town living is like then this is the trip for you. Yes, you get to visit the more traditional cruise ports but all the excursions let you experience the culture and history of Alaska.

This was an absolutely outstanding program! Our leader, John has a vast reservoir of knowledge about Alaska and was so willing and able to share it... I learned much more about Coastal Alaska than I ever dreamed I would... John himself was a superb leader in all respects. He went out of his way to help those who needed a little extra help. He was the consummate professional... Holland America also provided an ideal platform for this experience...

This program is not to be missed. The length of the program allows participants to see parts of Alaska - Anchorage, Homer, Kodiak that could not be seen on an "inside Passage" tour. Those extra stops were wonderful and the scenery along the way was spectacular. The group leader John Scheerens is Fabulous.

This was our fourth Road Scholar trip. We will definitely take more. It was a good value. It was a great way to see Alaska.

We had another great trip with Road Scholar. This trip goes to ports that most other cruises do not. It was a great value. You will not be disappointed.
