Holland America Line

Creating once-in-a-lifetime experiences

For 145 years, Holland America Line has been a recognised leader in cruising. Our fleet of 14 ships undertake more than 500 cruises to over 470 ports of call in 98 countries, territories or dependencies. From one-day mini-holidays to once-in-a-lifetime Grand World Voyages of more than 100 days, we visit all seven continents to call at a variety of exotic, tropical, historical, cultural and adventure-filled destinations. Today’s Holland America Line is still classic and premium, but energised with new ideas, offering expanded choices and experiences for guests. It’s about seeing, tasting, touching and feeling the remarkable moments a Holland America Line cruise offers to each of its guests, every day, including a wide range of dining options, world class entertainment, enriching onboard activities, and carefully crafted shore excursions.


The new EXC In-Depth Voyages aboard Maasdam expand on EXC programming by creating a total experience on board and ashore. Onboard enrichment is guided by a special resident team of subject-matter experts, covering such topics as marine and bird life, geology, cultural anthropology and history, who sail on all EXC In-Depth cruises, complementing each adventure with informative talks and insightful discussions of their own field experiences. Each journey offers guests a variety of themes and choices to tailor their exploration: photography; science and nature; arts and culture; food, wine and spirits; history and perspective; and active exploration.


In December 2018, Nieuw Statendam joined the Holland America Line fleet as the second Pinnacle-Class ship (after Koningsdam). The 2650-guest ship was christened by Godmother Oprah Winfrey, and includes new venues and partnerships onboard including Rolling Stone Rock Room, Grand Dutch Café, Americas Test Kitchen and BBC Earth Experiences. In 2019, Holland America Line’s Noordam is set to cruise a variety of unique itineraries in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific that showcase the region’s must-visit ports, bucket-list locales and iconic sites. Maasdam will also explore the area on its longer EXC In-Depth Voyages, which include an epic 30-day Australia Circumnavigation.
