“With this 75-year milestone, Holland America Line has been exploring Alaska longer than any other cruise line and even longer than Alaska’s been a state,” said Beth Bodensteiner, senior vice president and chief commercial officer, Holland America Line.

“With our deep knowledge, it’s no surprise that experts and outlets have named us the number-one cruise line in Alaska. We’ve used those years to create perfectly crafted Alaska adventures that offer travelers preferred access, exclusive means of travel and immersive experiences.”

Holland America Includes Immersive Alaska and Local Culture

Guests on Holland America’s Alaska cruises have the wonderful opportunity to immerse themselves in the local culture with authentic onboard experiences.  Many of the cruise activities and shore excursions offer a chance to learn more about Alaska up-close; the spectacular scenery, its original people and history.

The exclusive experiences are delivered through experts leading workshops and lectures.  EXC Talks explore the stories of real Alaskans and shore tours are chosen to highlight the best of each destination. 

HAL’s Port to Table cooking demonstrations and fine dining events feature the culinary traditions of Alaska’s regions.

Holland America Cruises to Alaska 2022

In 2022, Holland America Line will send six ships to cruise Alaska.  Departures are either roundtrip from Seattle, Washington; roundtrip from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; or Cross-Gulf between Whittier, Alaska, and Vancouver.

Every Alaska cruise includes a visit to at least one or more of Alaska’s iconic glacier destinations.  A day in Glacier Bay National Park, Hubbard Glacier and/or the Twin Sawyer Glaciers in Tracy Arm.  Don’t forget to pack your camera!

Combine an Alaska Cruise with a Land Tour

For explorers who want to travel farther into the Great Land, 16 different Cruisetours include an Alaska cruise with an inland exploration of Denali National Park or to the far-reaches of Canada’s Yukon Territory.  This can be added at your expense if you win a sweepstakes cruise, too.

HAL Was Voted Number-One Cruise Line in Alaska

No other cruise line had explored Alaska longer than Holland America Line.  Holland America was named the top pick for Alaska by AFAR Travelers’ Choice Awards and Cruise Critic Cruisers’ Choice Destination Awards among many others.  

From my personal experience on several Holland America Alaska cruises, I heartily agree!

Sweepstakes Notes:  The Holland America sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are 21 years of age or older and are located in the United States as of the date of entry.
