Holland America Cruises
Established in 1873, Holland America is a (now) American cruise line specialising in highlighting the wonders of the destination. Beyond space and comfort, they leave behind some of more lavish frills of their competitors to ensure that the focus is on the destination experience. With grandfather rights in Alaska, Holland America can ensure their passengers have the best experience when viewing the glacial beauties. Their ships have a dark blue hull, with a white superstructure and their names all bear the suffix ‘dam’. All vessels are named for one of the many dams along the rivers in the Netherlands, or one of the four compass points. While the ships appear simple in their elegance, inside you will find anything but. Attracting experienced passengers from throughout the world, Holland America offers a truly unique experience.
Holland America understands that you’re cruising to experience wonders not just see them. From in-depth talks from destination experts to entertainment tailored to the experience, a cruise with Holland is more than means of transport. Their ships will take you deep into the glaciers of Alaska, into the nightlife of south-east Asia and lets you taste the sensations of the Mediterranean. With 11 ships worldwide, Holland America can focus on what is most important to their passengers.
With carefully crafted itineraries, you can choose from over 500 itineraries, covering over 100 countries where you will find balance, depth and authenticity. Every aspect of your cruise has been carefully designed to highlight the wonder of your destination. From wilderness talks to local entertainment, to food which emphasises the local flavours, you will disembark feeling like you have truly experienced the local cultures you’ve visited.
