Experience the Majesty of Alaska with Holland America Line!

Embrace the untamed wilderness and breathtaking beauty of Alaska on an extraordinary cruise with Holland America Line. As they open bookings for the 2025 season, we're thrilled to offer an unforgettable "Alaska Up Close" experience, immersing you in the region's natural wonders and abundant wildlife.

Setting sail from April to October 2025, our Alaska cruises aboard Eurodam, Koningsdam, Nieuw Amsterdam, Noordam, Westerdam, and Zaandam promise an adventure like no other. Departing from Seattle and Vancouver, you'll embark on roundtrip journeys or choose one-way voyages between Vancouver and Whittier, Alaska.

Holland America understands that witnessing glaciers and encountering wildlife are top priorities for travelers exploring Alaska. That's why they're proud to hold the most Glacier Bay permits in the industry and provide numerous opportunities to witness these incredible spectacles.

On every Alaska cruise, prepare to be awestruck by the iconic glaciers as our ships sail up close to the massive ice formations, offering a 360-degree view. You'll have the chance to visit Glacier Bay National Park, College Fjord, Dawes Glacier, Hubbard Glacier, and Twin Sawyer Glaciers of Tracy Arm—each more breathtaking than the last.

But the adventure doesn't stop there! Nearly 180 shore excursions will take you on thrilling encounters with Alaska's diverse wildlife and majestic wilderness. Imagine whale watching in Juneau, exploring Sea Otter Quest and Alaska Raptor Center in Sitka, and going on a Wilderness Zodiac Quest in Ketchikan to spot bears, eagles, and seals.

With a wildlife expert on board, you'll receive insights into Alaska's fascinating fauna, such as humpback whales, orcas, bald eagles, moose, sea otters, and more. The daily program features designated times to meet the wildlife expert on deck, enhancing your chances of spotting these incredible creatures in their natural habitat.

Beyond wildlife encounters, their "Alaska Up Close" experience invites you to embrace local culture through onboard programming and award-winning shore excursions. Immerse yourself in authentic workshops, EXC Talks sharing real Alaskan stories, and fine dining events that celebrate the culinary traditions of the region.

Holland America's commitment to sustainable practices is showcased by their Responsible Fisheries Management (RFM) certification. They serve only fresh, certified sustainable, and traceable wild Alaska seafood, giving you a taste of Alaska's bountiful waters and supporting responsible fishing practices.
