Holland America Line Transpacific Cruises

A cruise across the Pacific Ocean with Holland America is the definition of a grand journey. This ocean is the largest on earth and divides the East from the West. These cruises allow guests to travel a world away without ever hoping on an airplane. Transpacific cruises allow for more time to take in the experience and, of course, no jet lag. Each of Holland America’s journeys are different – you could start in Seattle or San Diego and wind your way through Hawaii, or head straight to Tokyo with time spent discovering the incredible ports of China and Southeast Asia. Each port offers a new experience to have, site to see and person to meet.
