In 2022 Holland America Line is celebrating 75 years of Alaska exploration and bookings are now open for Alaska cruises and Land+Sea Journeys.

From April through October 2022, guests can embark on Holland America Line’s cruises to Alaska aboard Eurodam, Koningsdam, Nieuw Amsterdam, Noordam, Oosterdam and Zuiderdam. If travellers want to further explore Alaska, they can choose from 16 different Land+Sea Journeys to combine a three-, four- or seven-day Alaska cruise with an inland exploration of Denali National Park.

“It’s incredible to think that Holland America Line has been taking guests to Alaska longer than it’s been a state, and because 2022 is our 75th year, we want to allow plenty of time for guests to plan ahead.” said Gus Antorcha, Holland America Line’s president.

“Alaska is a destination where if you’ve never been, it’s on your bucket list; and if you have been, you’re eager to go back. There’s a reason we’ve won several awards naming us number-one in Alaska, and it’s because we are Alaska. Come celebrate our 75th Anniversary with us.”
