One of the most popular activities during the week was a grilled cheese cooking demonstration with Beecher’s Cheese. Holland America Line ships carry this delicious cheese from Seattle and guests can find it on board in our on-deck sailaway appetizers. Now you can make your own amazing grilled cheese at home. Tip from Beecher’s: Do NOT use butter!

Another popular activity was Alaska BINGO! Check off your squares and let us know how you did! Four corners, straight line or maybe a coverall!

We hope everyone had a fantastic cruise, and we look forward to setting sail on our next Virtual Voyage.
