Holland America Line is set to dominate the Alaska cruise scene in 2021, by putting on a full season of cruises and Land+Sea journeys in 2021.
From April to September, the Seattle-based cruise line will operate six of its ships in Alaska and Glacier Bay, allowing guests to enjoy an authentic Alaska experience.
Ships that will be stationed in Alaska include are Eurodam, Koningsdam, Nieuw Amsterdam, Noordam, Oosterdam and Volendam.
Itineraries will sail round-trip from Seattle, Washington state, and Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada.
A one-way sailing will also operate between Whitter (Anchorage), Alaska, and Vancouver.
Holland America Line president, Gus Antorcha, said: “We’re seeing strong interest for next summer’s Alaska season as people anticipate being able to get out again, travel and spend time with family and friends.
“Alaska has a natural beauty and an aura that are unmatched, and it’s right in our backyard. If you want to have an immersive experience, see Glacier Bay and go up to the Yukon, no one does it better than Holland America Line.
“We’re ready to return with plenty of options for everybody from couples to multi-generational families.”
Holland America Line will offer more itineraries to the Glacier Bay National Park than any other cruise line, and every Alaska cruise includes a visit to one or more of Alaska’s top glacier destinations.
These include the Glacier Bay National Park, Hubbard Glacier and the Twin Sawyer Glaciers of Tracy Arm.
New cruises for 2021 include Pinnacle-class Koningsdam returning to Alaska with a seven-day ‘Inside Passage’ itinerary.
Other new itineraries include a seven-day ‘Glacier Discovery Northbound’ and ‘Glacier Discovery Southbound’ sailing between Alaska’s Whittier and Vancouver aboard Nieuw Amsterdam and Noordam.
For those wanting to make the most of their time across the pond, Koningsdam, Nieuw Amsterdam, Noordam and Volendam will also offer Land+Sea Journeys ranging from nine to 18 days.
