Balance. Depth. Authenticity. These are the elements Holland America bring to more than 500 itineraries, stopping in 100 countries, the world over. For nearly 145 years Holland America has been introducing guests to new places and cultures but don’t for a second think traditional means dull and dreary. Holland America may reflect all the trappings of classical and refined cruising, but there’s nothing stuffy about setting course with this cruise line.
Reflecting their Dutch heritage, Holland America’s fleet of 15 mid-size ships all bear the suffix – dam – and are derived from some of The Netherlands’ most important landmarks. With more than 500 itineraries visiting all seven continents, you can select from a range of year-round itineraries taking you to popular and less-travelled ports in the Caribbean, Alaska, Europe, the Mediterranean, South America, Australia and Asia, among other destinations. The line’s extensive history is reflected in the extraordinary antique and art collections on board each of the ships, while such traditions as afternoon tea and ballroom dancing are effortlessly interspersed with more modern pursuits and facilities. Immerse yourself in the cullinary journey under the guidance of their Culinary Council of chefs, or test your culinary skills at Port-to-Table shows and workshops.
