Holland America Line

Cruise Style: Premium

Holland America Line has enjoyed a distinguished record of traditional cruises, world cruises, and transatlantic crossings for over one hundred and twenty-five years. Noted for its focus on passenger comfort, Holland America is a leader in world voyages.

Special Features 

Highlights of sailing with Holland America are unsurpassed service by Indonesian staffs, guest lecture and enrichment series, Gentleman Host programs for ladies traveling alone. More recent innovations are sports and fitness oriented activities and an emphasis on family cruising.

Other delicious traditions are afternoon tea, a Dutch Chocolate Extravaganza, and their signature Holland America bread pudding.

Cruise Itineraries

Transatlantic; Alaska; Panama Canal; Mexico; Caribbean; New England/Canada; South America; Europe; the Orient; Australia; South Pacific.

There are very few spots on the globe untouched by Holland America Line vessels. As a pioneer in developing Alaska cruises and operating pre- and post-cruise land tours, Holland America Line offers some of the most outstanding combination land and sea packages in the Alaska market.

Your Shipmates

Holland America Line attracts families and discerning couples from their late-30’s on up. Comfortable retirees are drawn to longer voyages and world cruises.

Junior Cruisers

Club HAL is Holland America Line’s professionally staffed youth and teen program for children and teenagers aged 5-17. The program is operated on an open door policy, meaning that participants may come and go as they please. All organized activities are supervised; however, Club HAL’s staff members are not responsible for children or teens who chooses to leave the activity. Children under the age of five may participate in the program, provided an adult accompanies them. Families find the self-service laundry facilities a convenience on the newer ships.
