Exploring Alaska with Holland America Line
Travel back in time to a land where Ice Age giants dominate the landscape. Where whales, moose, bear and eagles roam free. Holland America Line's Alaska cruise vacations allow you to experience the grandeur of Alaska aboard our fleet of 5-star ships specifically designed with Alaska cruising in mind. Wraparound teak decks, wide-open bows, 270° panoramic views from the Crow's Nest lounge and spacious private verandahs provide unparalleled opportunities to experience Alaska's stunning natural wonders. We also carry fewer guests than other ships in our class to ensure quiet corners and unfettered views. Welcome aboard for the trip of a lifetime.
