Celebrating 140 Years: Antarctica

In celebration of our 140th Anniversary this month, we’re dedicating a post a day to the wonderful destinations and attributes that make a Holland America Line cruise so special. Today’s post is about:


On the bucket list of every avid traveler, a cruise to Antarctica is filled with wonder, majesty and breath-taking views. During the scenic cruising, guests might witness several million Adélie penguins nesting on every available beach. Or on Elephant Island learn about Shackelton’s ill-fated expedition and the crew’s heroic daily struggle to survive. Glorious glaciers abound in one of the most remote parts of the world, best viewed from the deck of a Holland America Line ship. Join us on Zaandam’s 21-Day South America and Antarctica Explorer Voyages.
