Sail the Suite Life on a Holland America Line Cruise

From cozy inside cabins to grand luxury suites, Holland America Line offers a variety of options to suit every desire and budget.

For guests looking to indulge, the suites on Holland America Line ships range from comfortable Verandah Suites with floor-to-ceiling windows to sprawling 1,296-square-foot Pinnacle Suites (Penthouse Verandah) that feel more like an extravagant apartment. And despite popular belief, not every suite is a budget-breaker.

Imagine watching glaciers calve, whales breech or the intricacies of transiting one of the world’s canals from a private balcony. After a long day ashore exploring the ruins of Ephesus or the Amazon jungle, suite guests can retreat to their accommodations and relax in a spacious sitting area.

Pinnacle Suites, available on five Holland America ships, even have a full-sized dining room capable of seating eight guests – perfect for hosting a dinner for the whole family or newfound friends. Guests looking to unwind even further can take advantage of a full-sized bathtub, and Pinnacle Suite guests can indulge in an oversized whirlpool tub.

A hallmark of the Holland America Line experience for all Pinnacle and Neptune (Deluxe Verandah) suite guests is exclusive access to the Neptune Lounge, as featured in a recent post. An industry-leading retreat, the Neptune Lounge is found on all 15 ships in the fleet and is a private place to relax, socialize with other suite guests and enjoy the personalized service of a concierge who can make shipboard reservations and provide guidance about Holland America Line experiences. The lounge provides worktables, a large screen television, library, sofas and chairs, complimentary refreshments throughout the day and Wi-Fi for a small charge. One-Touch 24-hour concierge service even is available when the Neptune Lounge is closed.

Pinnacle and Neptune suite guests receive extra-special amenities such as corsages and boutonnieres for the first formal night, cold hors d’oeuvres served before dinner each evening on request, binoculars and umbrellas for use on the cruise, complimentary laundry service, priority tender boarding and in-suite high tea service on request.
