Cruise Information

Sail Through a Sea of Beauty. Summer Exploration Event*

Our long history in Alaska has led us to conclude that one of the best ways to experience the diversity of the Great Land is by sea. No other cruise line offers more exceptional cruise itineraries or more departures to Glacier Bay National Park, home to some of Alaska’s most impressive tidewater glaciers. And each of our cruises feature one or more glacier visits, including Hubbard Glacier, the twin Sawyer Glaciers of Tracy Arm, the glaciers of College Fjord or Glacier Bay National Park. Our long-standing relationship with local tour operators assures you of a remarkable time in Alaska’s iconic seaside towns too.
Holland America mid-sized ships bring you even closer to Alaska’s natural wonders. Check out nature’s reality show from your ship’s expansive wraparound deck. Feel the spirit of the region come to life on board through captivating talks by a professional naturalist. Continue your explorations ashore with our award-winning EXC Tours. With more cruise departures (including weekends) from convenient ports, your choice of where and when to begin your Alaska adventure couldn’t be easier.
