Bringing Our Experiences to You

All of us at Holland America Line are wishing you the best during this unprecedented time, and while we wait this out together, we'll continue to bring the Holland America Line experience to you with our HAL@HOME series.

Origin Story: How Holland America Line Came to Be

What began in 1873 as the Netherlands-America Steamship Company, headquartered in Rotterdam and providing service to the Americas, became known as Holland America Line. This special edition of HAL@HOME showcases Rotterdam and the amazing history that shaped the course of our company and opened more opportunities for immigration to the New World.
