FIND YOUR CRUISE

Haines, Alaska, US

First and best in Alaska Cruises


On an Alaska cruise with Holland America Line, you just might run out of superlatives. With its breathtaking coastline carved by massive tidewater glaciers over thousands of years, iconic wildlife in their natural habitats, fascinating native cultures and Klondike Gold Rush history, the Great Land will amaze, engage and delight you.

First in Alaska, Holland America Line’s roots in this magnificent region go back nearly 70 years — that’s longer than Alaska has been a state! With decades of experience here, we’ve been able to refine our itineraries to ensure that you get the perfect balance of must-see destinations and hidden treasures, more ports and more time in each port, as well as scenic cruising among the region’s grandest glaciers and best spots for wildlife viewing.

No matter which cruise to Alaska you select, all include scenic cruising in Tracy Arm, Hubbard Glacier or Glacier Bay, spectacular areas we know very well. In fact, we’ve been showing guests the wonders of Glacier Bay, a World Heritage Site, since before it was a National Park.

Cruise to Haines, Alaska


Haines nestles on the shore of America's longest fjord, with the horizons bounded by the snowy heights of the Coast Ranges. Like so many towns, Haines got a jump-start supplying miners headed for the gold fields of the Klondike. Today, the town's chief exports are adventure and scenery. Raft the Chilkat, hike the Takshanuk Mountains, or fish Chilkoot Lake. Outside of town, you're likely to spot bald eagles, moose, bear, wolves, seals, and orcas. Inside of town, stop by the Sheldon Museum and Cultural Center, the Tsirku Canning Company Museum, or numerous local art galleries.

CPP Standard Plan – Provided by Holland America Line

Our Standard Cancellation Protection Plan (CPP Standard Plan) will allow you, for any reason, to provide written cancellation up to 24 hours prior to the start of your scheduled travel (sea, land and/or air) arrangements made by Holland America Line and receive a refund equal to 80% of the eligible amounts paid. CPP Standard is available to all guests, regardless of residency.


In addition, Holland America Line (HAL) automatically assumes an additional $500 (USD) of liability for lost, damaged or delayed baggage of guests who purchase the CPP Standard Plan still subject, however, to the limitations in our baggage policies. For example, we do not cover losses while baggage is in the custody of airlines. Please review our Baggage Policy.

It may be added to your reservation to provide you with trip cancellation protection for up to 24 hours prior to the start of your scheduled travel. It provides no rights other than those explained above. For example, it does not protect double-triple-quad occupancy rates should one or more members of your party cancel, nor does it cover expenses for unused services due to trip interruption.


The CPP Standard Plan is available for purchase prior to the date on which cancellation fees begin to accrue. Payment is due at time of purchase. The cost of CPP Standard is non-refundable. The per person, per cruise cost is listed with the cruise fares. To add our Cancellation Protection Standard Plan to your new or existing bookings, please call us at 1‐877‐932‐4259.
