Holland America Line has been sailing to the shores of Alaska since 1947 - even before it was a state! The cruise lines experience is unmatched and their expertise and insider knowledge ensures each and every guests’ cruise is remarkable.

On a cruise to Alaska with Holland America Line, you may experience the scenic Inside Passage, spend a few days exploring the wonderful Denali and be lucky enough to travel by glass-domed railcar. If you need more persuading, here are 3 reasons to book an Alaskan cruise with HAL:

The landscapes

This is Alaska, where glaciers flow into the sea, marine life thrives and frontier ports brim with adventure. Depending on which Alaskan itinerary you choose, you’ll have the opportunity to experience the seldom-seen wonders of the Yukon and the must-see sights of Denali National Park, the quaint towns of the Inside Passage and the breathtaking views of Glacier Bay National Park. Alaska’s landscapes truly need to be seen to be believed.

The onboard experience

During the cruise element of your Alaskan holiday, you’ll enjoy all the comforts, dining and amenities of your perfectly-sized ship. Like the intimate yet elegant interior which creates a timeless and inviting ambience. Or the most extensive menus at sea with mouthwatering choices served in the elegant two-tiered dining room. Or the talented musicians that bring life to a classic masterpiece.

Enriching journeys

From exploring the world’s natural treasures to learning about tried-and-tested culinary techniques, Holland Ameria Line’s exclusive partnerships give guests more to see and do:

BBC Earth Experiences

Be transported to the majestic wilderness of the Polar Regions and Alaska with a live concert set to the backdrop of the breath-taking footage from Frozen Planet and gain insight into how the extraordinary content is captured.

Microsoft Studio

Learn how technology can make your voyage more meaningful and memorable with HAL’s complimentary small-group courses at the new Microsoft Studio. Using the latest technology, Microsoft-trained hosts will show you everything from video-editing techniques to creating amazing albums from your travel photos.

In addition to sharing interesting insights into their cuisine, background and cooking techniques, the chefs will also engage guests through activities like live cooking demonstrations, food tastings, wine pairings, speciality dinners and more.
