The American-owned cruise line, Holland America, has just announced that they will schedule six ships set to sail to the US state of Alaska in 2023.   The six vessels – which go by the names of Eurodam, Koningsdam, Nieuw Amsterdam, Noordam, Volendam and Westerdam – are due to be deployed around April time next year (2023), and will offer a variety of cruises up until September.   And, with Alaska being a state that offers so much for visitors, there is no doubt that these Holland America Line (HAL) cruises will become a huge hit amongst cruise enthusiasts.

What are the Cruise Options?  

With fares starting from $684 per person, each cruise offers a visit to at least one glacier – and there are three, four, seven, and even 14-day voyages to choose from.  

Here’s a little bit more information about some of the cruises on offer:

Cruise Ship on open water

Alaskan Inside Passage – this roundtrip cruise – which departs from and returns to Vancouver – offers a glimpse of Alaska’s jaw-dropping nature sites of Tracy Arm and Glacier Bay. 

Glacier Discovery ‘Northbound’ and ‘Southbound’ – offering the opportunity to explore the stunningly-beautiful Inside Passage, as well as a chance to experience the wonderful Glacier Bay National Park.

Great Alaskan Explorer – an extensive 14-day roundtrip cruise that will allow visitors to take in the pure natural beauty of the Inside Passage, along with stunning views of Glacier Bay. You will also have the opportunity to bear-watch at Alaska’s largest fishing port, Kodiak Island, as well as stop by the Alaskan cities of Skagway, Sitka and Ketchikan.


HAL are even offering cruise packages that offer passengers the chance to move inland, allowing you to get to grips with – and explore – the natural wonder that is the Denali National Park.   The well-renowned cruise company is currently the only one in the region that offers its customers the opportunity to experience Yukon – a mountainous, yet sparsely populated – territory in the northwest of Canada.

Why Alaska is a Great Option for Cruise Lovers? 

There is no doubt that Alaska really does offer some of the most outstanding – and breathtaking – nature spots that are on offer in the US, including national parks that some people may even be unaware of.   And, with HAL offering a selection of different cruise options – all of which give visitors the chance to get up, close and personal with an Alaska naturalist – passengers will also gain a better understanding of the state’s history and culture courtesy of the National Park Rangers.
