For nearly 150 years, Holland America Line has been sailing the world’s most popular oceans and seas, taking travellers to experience the enchanting wonders of Europe.
From colourful, fashion-forward Copenhagen to the glacial fjords of Norway, home to more fjords than any other nation on Earth, premium cruise company Holland America Line (HAL) offers magical voyages in Northern Europe.
HAL’s proud Dutch heritage is anchored in Northern Europe and founded in the City of Rotterdam – home port of its newest ship, Rotterdam. The moment you step onboard the Pinnacle Class Rotterdam (2668 guests), or sister ship Nieuw Statendam (2666 guests), you will experience a cruise like no other.
Take in the picturesque splendours of Iceland and Greenland onboard beautiful Nieuw Statendam as you cruise in the wake of the Vikings. You will explore their homelands in Norway and Scandinavia and learn how they built their homes and why they were such adept shipbuilders.
Reykjavík has long been a popular port and, in 2024, you may begin or end your cruise in this northernmost world capital. Soak in the steaming waters of the Blue Lagoon, take in the dramatic architecture of Iceland’s largest church, and delve into the award-winning interactive exhibits on Iceland’s natural forces at Perlan.
Explore fjords and remote landscapes
If you’ve always wanted to explore the fjords of Iceland and remote landscapes of Greenland in a smaller, more intimate ship, then look no further than a Viking Passage or Voyage of the Vikings cruise aboard the elegant 1964-passenger Zuiderdam. Embarking from either Ijmuiden (Amsterdam) or Rotterdam and journeying to Boston, HAL’s epic sailings in 2024 range from 17 to 35 days.
HAL prides itself on developing carefully crafted journeys dedicated to enticing and satisfying the explorer spirit of travellers as well as the foodie and music lovers of the world. You’ll enjoy insider travel tips, unique shore excursions and trained guides who will take great pleasure in imparting their expert knowledge of each destination’s cultural heritage, allowing guests to have a deeper insight into the places visited.
The line’s award-winning menus and culinary programming are guided and developed by a cadre of world-class chefs who bring their collective experience, passion and creativity to the dining venues. Locally sourced ingredients reflect the cuisine of the regions in which you cruise.
The ships are spacious, sophisticated and sleek with well-thought-out spacious suites and staterooms, museum-quality art, fresh flowers gracing the public areas and, best of all, some of the finest entertainment at sea. You will be rocking and singing late into the night in the Rolling Stone Rock Room, B.B. King’s Blues Club or Billboard Onboard for a cruise to remember.
