By offering close to 180 shore excursions, Holland America Line leads Alaska cruising with the most Glacier Bay permits, glacier viewing experiences and opportunities to observe wildlife in the cruise industry. Bookings for the 2025 season are now open.
Guests choose an Alaska cruise because they want to see glaciers up close and whales in the wild, and Holland America Line is proud to be the number one cruise line in these areas because it offers more ways to see glaciers, wildlife and wilderness than any other cruise line,” said Beth Bodensteiner, chief commercial officer. As we open bookings for our 2025 season, we’re offering an Alaska: Up Close experience and incentives to begin planning now.
Onboard the Eurodam, Koningsdam, Nieuw Amsterdam, Noordam, Westerdam, and Zaandam, guests will be able to enjoy Alaska cruises beginning in April 2025. You can depart from Seattle, Washington, Canada, or Whittier, Alaska in either direction.
Cruise ships that visit Holland America Line also visit the College Fjord, Dawes Glacier, Hubbard Glacier, and Twin Sawyer Glaciers of Tracy Arm, making it the cruise line with the most permits to visit Glacier Bay National Park.
Additionally, guests can choose from a variety of shore excursions, including Excursions by Catamaran: Hubbard Glacier and Enchanting Disenchantment Bay in Hubbard Glacier and Tracy Arm Inlet, and Glacier Explorer to Sawyer Glacier.
There are nearly 180 tours offered by Holland America Line to see wildlife, including whale watching in Juneau and the Alaska Raptor Center.
