Come explore Alaska in classic elegance; teak deck chairs, a wrap-around promenade deck, mid-sized ships with fewer passengers, king crab legs for 2 on your private verandah. Holland America Line ships were built for luxury and for allowing their passengers to experience Alaska and the Yukon in the best way possible.

Holland America Line offers a wider selection of Alaska itineraries and offers Glacier Bay National Park on most of their major cruise itineraries. In addition, the 14-day Alaskan Explorer gives you the opportunity to experience more ports, more glaciers, and more wildlife than some encounter in a lifetime. Why come all this way and get shorted on all this?

Holland America Line brings you three major cruise itineraries in Alaska.

  • Alaskan Explorer – offering 7- and 14-day itineraries; roundtrip Seattle, Washington
  • Inside Passage Cruises – offering 7-day itineraries; roundtrip Vancouver, British Columbia
  • Glacier Discovery Cruises – offering 7-day itineraries running northbound and southbound between Vancouver, British Columbia and Seward (Anchorage), Alaska

Seven days in Alaska just isn’t enough? You can extend your vacation with many of our pre- and post- cruise packages or join us on one of our many Land+Sea Journeys.

7-Day Glacier Discovery Cruise PDF Print E-mail

Enjoy the option of heading northbound from Vancouver to Seward (Anchorage) or southbound from Seward (Anchorage) to Vancouver.  These one-way cruises explore the spectacular sights of the Inside Passage, as well as the glacier-clad shores of Southcentral Alaska.

The Glacier Discovery Cruises include your classic Alaska ports of Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway, but also take quite a bit of time to tour the most scenic and popular glacier, Glacier Bay.  You can spend a full day in Glacier Bay, witness the sun rise or set on the magnificent peaks, and discover the charm of these great Alaskan cities.

7-Day Inside Passage Cruises PDF Print E-mail

The Glacier Bay Inside Passage Cruises offer the classic Alaskan cruise for your first time to Alaska or your fifth time back. Alaska's Inside Passage runs 500 miles from Ketchikan to Yakutat and it is well known for its abundant marine and wildlife, towering mountains and scenic glaciers.

The Glacier Bay Inside Passage Cruises offer convenient round-trip service from Vancouver, giving you the opportunity to extend your vacation pre- or post-cruise in beautiful British Columbia. You can choose between a full day at Glacier Bay National Park or Tracy Arm Fjord.

Tracy Arm Fjord is nestled between 3000-foot granite walls and weaves 35 miles through Tongass National Forest.  The shoreline is spotted with waterfalls and trees with the dramatic Sawyer Glaciers at the end.  These glaciers are home to black and brown bears, wolves, deer and moose.  YOu'll also see seals and whales that make the fjord their home.

7 to 14-Days: Alaskan Explorer Cruises PDF Print E-mail

Holland America’s Alaskan Explorer Cruises provide travelers with a 7- or 14-day “highlights of Alaska” journey. These spectacular Alaskan cruises sail in and out of Seattle, Washington, allowing for sightseeing in Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca (with a stop at Victoria, British Columbia in between).

On the 7-day itinerary, choose from two options: the first featuring scenic cruising through Glacier Bay National Park, one of the top reasons why travelers journey to Alaska. The second itinerary features cruising through Tracy Arm Fjord, culminating with the dramatic Sawyer Glaciers.  Each 7-day itinerary stops in Juneau, Sitka, Ketchikan, and Vicotria, British Columbia.

And because 7-days sometimes isn't enough to experience all that Alaska has to offer, we recommend Holland America's 14-day Alaskan Explorer. This medley includes both Tracy Arm Fjord with Sawyer Glaciers and Hubbard Glacier. This adventure also includes stops at the incredible ports of Ketchikan, Juneau, Icy Strait Point, Homer, Kodiak, Sitka and Victoria, British Columbia.
