Holland America Line

The Holland America Line, based in Seattle, has a long tradition as a cruise company. For more than 140 years the original Dutch shipping company has been one of the leading providers of cruises to dreamlike destinations around the world.

More than 500 journeys a year, the Holland America Line organises for curious travelers: whether it is in the Caribbean, South America, Alaska or in more exotic areas such as the Amazon or Antarctica – the Holland America line offers a breathtaking program even to less visited ports. Cruising with award-winning service, luxurious ships, 5-star gastronomy and a wide-ranging entertainment program are the highlights.

Holland America – From the emigration ship to the cruise star

The Holland America Line was founded in 1873 under the name Netherlands-America Steamship Company as a freight and passenger line. From Rotterdam, the rapidly growing fleet brought mainly European emigrants into a new life in the United States. The first cruise was already offered in 1895, before the HAL shipping company, which was called HAL in 1973, finally stopped its cargo operation in favor of the passenger business. At the end of the 1980s, Carnival Corporation bought the company and integrated it into its extensive cruise portfolio, where HAL is today a premium brand. As before, Rotterdam has still been dominated by its roots, not least by the Hotel New York in the harbor area, the former headquarters of the Holland America Line.

Explore the world on fifteen ocean giants

Fifteen ships are the fleet of the Holland America Line, including the more than 2,100 passenger giants Nieuw Amsterdam and Eurodam, one of the most modern ships in the world. A little bigger is the colossus of the Koningsdam, which has a population of 2,650. From indoor and outdoor cabins with a size of 13 square meters to luxurious suites with a lush 126 square meters of living space, everything is represented on the giant cruisers. There are a number of restaurants for the physical welfare of passengers, where international cuisine can be enjoyed at fixed times or even spontaneously. Italian pasta or a hefty steak from the grill – the “As you wish” food service is the right choice for every palate.

The varied stage program also serves every taste. Add a lively outfit to Livemusik in the lounge or learn new dance moves from the stars of the TV show “Dancing With The Stars: At Sea”. Then relax in the modern wellness area or indulge in the pleasure of shopping in the on-board shops. A casino and the ship cinema complete the entertainment offer. As a true highlight, you will be presented with an art collection with paintings by a wide range of national and international artists – there is no way around for passengers interested in art.

Environmentally conscious and sustainable to the most exotic places in the world.

The Holland America Line describes itself as an environmentally friendly company that meets the most modern environmental standards. The company is proud of its ISO 14001 certification, which guarantees international standards at all levels of ships. In doing so, the shipping company is significantly involved in the “Ship to Shelter” program, which collects reusable goods and objects on ships and distributes them to internationally recognized charitable organizations.

With the “On Deck For A Cause” program, the shipping company also supports cancer research. All passengers are invited to take part in a five kilometer race on deck, which will be donated to organizations in six countries. In addition, the line offers cruises at discounted rates to support charitable actions in the US and Canada.
