5 Reasons You Should Sail with Holland America Line

With a legacy of nearly 145 years, Holland America Line has a rich history of sailing across the oceans of the world. Even today, Holland America Line maintains a traditional style of cruising on its elegant, classically built ships that offer impeccable service onboard. Here are five reasons you should consider sailing with Holland America.

1| Carefully-Crafted Itineraries

Holland America Line offers more than 500 itineraries across the globe, visiting over 300 ports across all seven continents. Some of their most popular destinations include Alaska, Europe, and the Caribbean. Each itinerary is carefully planned to ensure a balance between time spent on shore exploring destinations and time spent onboard indulging in fine dining, entertainment venues, and amazing onboard experiences.

2| Explorations CentralTM (EXC®)

With Holland America Line, you won’t just travel to new places. You’ll get a deeper understanding of each destination you visit. You’ll see multimedia presentations onboard and learn about a destination’s culture and history from local experts, artists, and performers. Holland America’s Explorations CentralTM (EXC®) is designed to make exploring each destination more meaningful, so you walk away with more than just the souvenirs you bought on shore.

3| Spaciously-Designed Ships

Holland America ships are designed with space in mind, so you can truly enjoy your time onboard. They’re neither gigantic nor too small and are built with classic, nautical lines that lend a timeless elegance to these vessels. They feel refreshingly uncrowded, allowing you to have a truly relaxing time, which is exactly what a vacation should be.

4| Culinary Indulgences

Pamper your taste buds with excellent options onboard for both casual and fine dining. The menus are crafted by a team of world-class celebrity chefs, ensuring you have an excellent culinary experience onboard. You can enjoy steaks at the Pinnacle Grill, Italian cuisine at Canaletto, Asian delicacies at Tamarind, classic French dishes with a modern twist at Rudi’s Sel De Mer, and more. You can also indulge in New York style Pizza, Gelato, and of course, there’s always the option of in-room dining, which is available 24 hours a day.

5| Amazing Onboard Entertainment

If you love music, you’ll love being onboard a Holland America ship. You can enjoy classical cruise ship music at the Lincoln Center Stage or listen to live pianists at Billboard Onboard. At B.B. King’s Blues Club, you can enjoy the best of Memphis R&B at sea while at the Rolling Stone Rock Room, you can listen to classic hits that we all love. If you prefer something a little different, you can head over to the World Stage, which is an innovative cruise ship show that features a two-story LED screen that gives the impression of a vivid, wraparound display.
