Holland America Line Alaska Cruises

See the Last Frontier in all its grandeur with a Holland America Line Alaska cruise.

Or try your hand at some king salmon and halibut fishing in Sitka for the chance to catch your dinner and perhaps send something home for those who missed out. That’s only the tip of the iceberg when you cruise to Alaska with Holland America.

Things to Do on an Alaska Cruise with Holland America Line


The rugged landscape of Alaska lends itself to amazing adventures in nature. With Holland America’s Alaskan cruises you can whitewater raft, go searching for bears and pan for gold. The landscape is also inspiring, and you can taste it in the beer and see it in the local art.
