Cruise to Copenhagen
Explore Copenhagen: Our Destination Guides, in partnership with AFAR, offer guests the most distinctive and insightful guides to our ports of call, along with personalization tools to help you plan your perfect journey.
On your cruise to Copenhagen with Holland America Line, you can step into Amager Square and be in the heart of Copenhagen's venerable gabled facades and the carnival of humanity eating, drinking and seizing the day. Built on a series of islands, Copenhagen balances tradition and kinetic energy, while all the while the Little Mermaid statue keeps a thoughtful watch on the harbor.
Explore the City Further
Your cruise from Copenhagen will allow you to spend a few days before or (if you are disembarking) after to explore this city more fully. To learn more about hotel packages that will extend your cruise vacation, please contact your travel advisor or Holland America Line.
Cruise to Flam
Explore Flam: Our Destination Guides, in partnership with AFAR, offer guests the most distinctive and insightful guides to our ports of call, along with personalization tools to help you plan your perfect journey.
The Aurlandsfjord would be a magnificent fjord in its own right, with its glassy waters and snow-frosted peaks towering more than 3,000 over the water. What's even more humbling is that the fjord is just an arm of an even longer, more massive one — the Sognefjord. That fjord is the longest in Norway, but your cruise will make the turn south, for Flam. The cliffs crowd ever closer as you near the village and when you get there, it seems there's nowhere to look but up. The town is lovely; the countryside is creased by rivers and waterfalls, and mantled in meadows. Take a ride on the legendary, and steep, Flam Railway.
Cruise to Oslo
Explore Oslo: Our Destination Guides, in partnership with AFAR, offer guests the most distinctive and insightful guides to our ports of call, along with personalization tools to help you plan your perfect journey.
The whole coast of Norway is as frayed as the hem of a much-loved blanket, so it's fitting that the country's capital lies at the head of a fjord. How perfect for a cruise. Oslo is hilly and green — two-thirds of the city is protected forest — and what's human-made is diverse, from the classicist Kunstnernes Hus to the modern Oslo Opera House, winner of the top prize at the 2008 World Architecture Festival. Take a walk through the central city and look and listen. At your feet you'll come across the Ibsen Quotes, an art installation consisting of 69 of the playwright's quotations set in the sidewalks. In the air you may hear music — the city hosts music festivals all summer long.
Cruise to St. Petersburg
Explore St. Petersburg: Our Destination Guides, in partnership with AFAR, offer guests the most distinctive and insightful guides to our ports of call, along with personalization tools to help you plan your perfect journey.
The city is a treasure chest of glittering domes, baroque palaces, and elaborate churches. A cruise to St. Petersburg with Holland America Line lets you immerse yourself in the city's cultural immensity. The Hermitage alone could overwhelm you. One of the world’s great museums, it houses works by Titian, Dutch and Flemish masters, Michelangelo and Matisse, and the Peacock Clock. Ensconced in Catherine the Great’s Winter Palace, the museum is as evocative as its collection.
Cruise to Stockholm
Explore Stockholm: Our Destination Guides, in partnership with AFAR, offer guests the most distinctive and insightful guides to our ports of call, along with personalization tools to help you plan your perfect journey.
Down along the east-central coast of Sweden, where the littoral bulges out into the Baltic, where Lake Malaren sprawls, not quite sure whether it's a lake, a river, or the sea, there's Stockholm. The city, spread across 14 islands, exists as both a world capital of and a meme. A cruise visit to the city uncovers the genius you might expect, manifest in the city's parks, waterways, and urban design. But there is also something more. Stockholm was designated a European Green Capital in 2010 and has become a global leader in sustainable urban living. So as you walk the streets and whistle softly at the view, consider you may be witnessing the birth of something hinting at the future of the planet.
Cruise to Tallinn
Explore Tallinn: Our Destination Guides, in partnership with AFAR, offer guests the most distinctive and insightful guides to our ports of call, along with personalization tools to help you plan your perfect journey.
Toompea, the old town, is a thicket of turrets, spires, and onion domes that overlooks the rest of Tallinn and the Gulf of Finland. Legend says the limestone outcrop is the burial mound of the Estonian king Kalev, while geology claims the area first emerged from the surrounding land about 10,000 years ago. No matter. From its start as a trade link between Russia and Scandinavia and rise as a member of the Hanseatic League trade alliance, the city today has been ranked as one of the top 10 digital cities in the world. That should make it easy to send pictures home of the local sights — and not just Toompea. See All-linn (the lower town) on your cruise. It's brilliantly preserved.
Cruise to Invergordon
Explore Inverness: Our Destination Guides, in partnership with AFAR, offer guests the most distinctive and insightful guides to our ports of call, along with personalization tools to help you plan your perfect journey.
The skirl of Highland bagpipes calls you ashore. Go in search of your clan tartan, and "Nessie," the spurious monster often sighted in Loch Ness.
