Are you dreaming of icy-blue glaciers and magnificent wildlife sightings in Alaska? Trying to decide which cruise to take to make your dreams come true? At Holland America Line, we love Alaska. In fact, we’ve been visiting the Great Land for more than 75 years. Our love for Alaska is literally printed on our ships that sail there, and we’re thrilled guests also share our passion for this amazing cruise experience. Thanks to voters, Holland America Line’s Eurodam has been recognized for “Best Alaska Cruise” from USA TODAY/10Best Readers’ Choice Awards.

In celebration of this special recognition, we’ve highlighted some of the best reasons to cruise to Alaska with us:

Experience More Glaciers Up Close

With Holland America Line, you’ll see more glaciers in Alaska than any other cruise line. Whether you’re looking to explore them by sea, land or air, we can take you there. Get a close-up view from our perfectly sized ships. Trek across a glacier on a guided hike. Take off on a thrilling tour to soak up aerial views of icy giants. Whether you’re sailing along the shore or embarking on an unforgettable shore excursion, you’ll experience the best of Alaska’s glaciers on our Alaska cruise.

Enjoy Breathtaking Wildlife Moments

It’s a whale. It’s a sea lion. It’s the Big Five! With Holland America Line you can have more access to Alaska wildlife than any other cruise line, bringing you closer to its wondrous creatures. National Park Service Rangers and onboard wildlife experts guide you through wildlife-watching opportunities. Experience whales breaching or bubble-net feeding. Watch sea lions chilling on rocks and otters gliding through icy waters. Take in the views as bears hunt for salmon along the shore. And if you extend your vacation, enhance your adventure with an Alaska cruisetour, taking you deeper into the Alaska wilderness and Canada’s Yukon Territory where the Big Five roam.

Savor the Flavor of Fresh Fish Dishes

Indulge in our Global Fresh Fish and Savor My Catch programs, where you’ll savor the tastes of Alaska from port to plate. That means enjoying the mouthwatering taste of fresh, certified and sustainable Alaska seafood. Tasting Alaska’s fresh and flavorful seafood on our ships has long been part of our immersive culinary experiences. If catching a big one is at the top of your list during an Alaska cruise, consider reeling in a catch on select fishing-focused shore excursions. Then you can indulge in every bite on board through Savor My Catch, relaxing as Holland America Line’s expert chefs prepare and serve it in a true ocean-to-table experience.
