Holland America Line



With countless amazing landscapes and wildlife that can only be seen from Alaska’s expansive waters, this natural paradise is truly meant to be admired from a cruise ship


Alaska, eternally popular with a wide range of cruisers, offers up untouched scenery and an abundance of natural wonders. Adventure awaits in Alaska, with guests able to zipline in Ketchikan or kayak in Juneau and spot wildlife like nowhere else on earth.

Why Holland America Line loves Alaska

After taking travellers to Alaska for 75 years, we’ve come to know this land intimately. It’s spectacular scenery, wildlife and native cultures. We want travel partners (and their clients) to discover the best ways to get to know and love it as we do.

Nothing tops a HAL cruise for the best introduction to Alaska’s ice-age glaciers, Inside Passage ports and marine life, our perfectly-sized ships taking guests closer to every calving glacier, every whale splash, every tranquil inlet.

Travellers can combine their cruise with a stay at our McKinley Chalet Resort in Denali National Park and hike through taiga forests, spot caribou and grizzlies on an included Tundra Wilderness Tour.
