Travel with us to the 49th State and experience the magic that only Alaska can offer, on this spectacular 7-day, round-trip cruise, on Holland America’s, Ms. Oosterdam. Witness lush rainforests, colossal mountains and salmon making their way upstream in the clear river streams, with bear and moose roaming freely in their natural habitat. You may even catch a glimpse of whales breaching the water. Alaska, also, has some of the world's most spectacular glaciers. These glaciers often drop huge chunks of ice, a process called calving, into the sea. The calving sounds like a huge clap of thunder! Alaska is a part of the world where Mother Nature has been left alone in her natural state, where wildlife remains abundant. Learn all the things you wanted to know about this amazing paradise on the HOP!

Booking your cabin early – Recall dates Escapees can only hold the group space for a limited time before the cruise line recalls our unassigned cabins. After the recall date (see above), Escapees may not be able to secure a cabin and even if we can, it will not be at the rates listed here. This cruise will sell out quickly; Alaska is a very popular destination to visit, so it’s very critical that you book early, even though the cruise is scheduled for NEXT YEAR! Again, once the recall dates have passed, it will be harder to get a cabin on this cruise.
