Alaska: Holland America vs Diamond Princess?

Jump to last reply

I've checked on nine- day cruise from Vancouver to Anchorage (one way) on either HAL or Diamond Princess. Regent Seven Seas is also intriguing but seems pricey for me from what I see on their website at around $5K per person. I'm 66 and my wife is 56 so we don't need late night amenities. I'm leaning toward HAL because their ships seem smaller and seem to cater to an older crowd. But seeking advice on others on this forum who have used HAL on this Alaska route and whether the food, rooms, service, extras, were good quality. Is a verandah or balcony worth the extra cost? Am I right to lean more to HAL for our needs? Any other advice? Thank you for your help
