The image here is of Seattle as we left the dock on Sunday, Sept 6th. Rain had been an off and on event during the day, but the departure was excellent! Holland America’s ms Westerdam is a lovely ship with mid-ship elevators that are glass so you have views of the ocean as you maneuver in the ship.
We had a stateroom with balcony on the Navigation Deck that offered views of the journey whenever we wanted to look out the floor to ceiling windows or pop onto the private balcony. Holland Ameria has wool plaid blankets for wrapping up in against the cold, so we were pleased to see two waiting for us in our stateroom. The down comforters were also welcome when we were in the Glacier Bay area!
Many photos were taken and will be on the Hall & Hearn Photography website gallery soon! More travel info to come!
