Alaska Cruises

Alaska comes to life on a Holland America Line cruise. Cobalt-blue glaciers and primeval fjords. Breaching orca whales and otters at play. Bald eagles above and black bears foraging below. Our perfectly sized, premium ships are ideal for exploring the region’s spectacular natural beauty. Our Alaska cruise itineraries, ranging from 7 to 21 days, offer more options for glacier viewing, with more cruises to Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, than any other cruise line.
