Holland America Line Travel Agents & Deals

For nearly 145 years, Holland America Line has been a recognized leader in cruising, taking our guests to exotic destinations around the world. If you are looking for some of the most spacious and comfortable ships at sea, award-winning service, elegant dining, extensive activities and enrichment programs and compelling worldwide itineraries, you've come to the right place. We are committed to our mission: Through excellence, we create once-in-a-lifetime experiences, every time.

Today, Holland America Line's fleet of 15 modern classic ships offers more than 500 sailings a year visiting all seven continents. Cruises include both popular and less-traveled ports in the Caribbean, Alaska, Europe, Mexico, South America, the Panama Canal, Australia, New Zealand and Asia — as well as unique voyages to the Amazon, Antarctica and our extended Grand Voyages.

Holland America Line is proud of its environmental program. The company earned its initial ISO 14001 certification in June 2006. As the internationally recognized standard for environmental management, ISO 14001 encompasses virtually every aspect of our ships' operations. Holland America Line has been recertified to meet that standard again and again — in 2009, 2012 and 2015. Our commitment to it demonstrates our belief that the safeguarding of our guests, crews, ships and the environment in which we live and operate is not only the right thing to do, it is essential to the successful conduct of our business.

As part of our collective social responsibility, the company, employees, and guests have joined together to give back to communities and organizations around the world. Whether it's donating shipboard items to an orphanage, cleaning up a neighborhood park, walking 5K onboard to raise funds for cancer research, or donating money to disaster relief, Holland America Line and our employees share time and resources to make a difference.

Every Holland America Line employee is commitment to provide a truly extraordinary experience for our guests. We look forward to welcoming you aboard.

Single Partners Program

Each Holland America Line ship hosts a gathering for Solo Travelers early during their cruise. And there are plenty of things for solo travelers to do that make it easy to meet fellow cruisers. From cooking classes to computer instruction, dance classes to games, there’s something for every interest and skill level.

You can count on the gracious staff and crew to make everyone feel welcome. Guests may even request to be seated with other singles at dinner. Many of our Single Partner Program guests have become fast friends and some even book future Holland America Line cruises together.

Single guests who agree to share a stateroom with another nonsmoking guest of the same sex pay only the per-person, double occupancy rate. (If a partner can't be located for you, you cruise solo at the agreed-upon double-occupancy fare.) Single guests who prefer not to share a stateroom may book a double stateroom for 150 to 200 percent of the double occupancy fare, depending on the cruise and stateroom category. This program applies to selected staterooms on all ships in the fleet. The Single Partner Program is not available on Grand Voyages (Grand World Voyage, South America & Antarctic Voyage and Mediterranean & North Africa Voyage) or Alaska Land+Sea Journeys.

Ships will receive the suite enhancements as they head into their scheduled dry docks over the next few years.

Clothing and Dress Code

The right clothing can make a big difference in the enjoyment of your cruise. First and foremost, dress for comfort. Daily life aboard ship and in ports of call is laid back and casual. Warmer climates call for clothing made of lightweight, breathable fabrics. For cooler climates, we suggest casual clothes that can be layered easily and possibly a raincoat and waterproof hat or umbrella and gloves. Certain shore excursions may require particular attention to clothing. For example, certain churches or other places of worship may not allow tank tops or short pants.

Bring a swimsuit as all of our ships have pools and whirlpools. You may wish to bring more than one outfit for the water. We ask that you wear shoes and a cover-up over a bathing suit when walking through the interior of the ship. If you would like to jog on the sports deck or work out in the fitness center, bring workout gear.

Footwear should include comfortable walking shoes for visits ashore and sandals or rubber-soled shoes for strolling on deck.

Evening dress falls into two distinct categories: Smart Casual or Gala. Most evening Smart Casual attire is appropriate and can be defined as slacks and sports shirts or sweater for men and skirt or trousers and sweater or blouse for women. Shorts, pool/beachwear, distressed jeans and men’s tank tops are best left to the daytime and are not permitted in fine dining restaurants.

Gala nights evoke the grand traditions of cruising as guests dress to impress for special events on board, including our five-course gourmet dinner in the Dining Room. For gentlemen, collared shirts and slacks are required in all fine dining restaurants. The number of Gala evenings on your cruise will depend upon the duration of the voyage. Please note, if you have booked collector voyages, the number of Gala evenings is based upon the duration of each individual voyage of the ship.

Wheelchair Accessibility

Holland America Line does not discriminate against individuals on the basis of disability. We seek, to the extent feasible, to accommodate guests with disabilities. However, some needs require adequate time to prepare for a guest's arrival. It is recommended that guests make every effort to contact our Access & Compliance Department and to submit Special Requirements Information (SRI) Form well in advance of the departure of their cruise and/or cruisetour. We recommend submitting an SRI upon booking or a minimum of 45 days prior to departure.

Our vessels have specially designed staterooms for guests who use wheelchairs. If you have not booked one of these wheelchair accessible staterooms but instead will be using a standard stateroom, you need to know about some limitations that adversely impact maneuverability, especially ingress and egress into bathrooms. For example, bathroom dimensions, doorsills, and the height of bathtubs in standard staterooms are often difficult to negotiate for guests who have limited mobility. Additionally, standard stateroom doors and hallways may be too narrow for a wheelchair or scooter to maneuver into and out of the stateroom. Note: For safety reasons, these mobility devices must be stored and charged in the guests' staterooms.

Our Wheelchair Accessible Staterooms offer features such as wider entry doors, roll-in showers with grab bars, benches/seats, and hand-held shower nozzles, as well as lowered closet and towel rods.

Casino and Gaming

You can test lady luck on many of the favorite games including Blackjack, Poker, Craps, Roulette and Slots. Complimentary gaming lessons are held at the beginning of the cruise. Another great way to win money and prizes is by playing one of the many Bingo games scheduled throughout the cruise.

Private Cabanas

On the Eurodam, Noordam, Nieuw Amsterdam, Koningsdam, Nieuw Statendam, Oosterdam, Westerdam, and Zuiderdam, you can completely unwind in airy, tented cabanas in the Retreat or around the mid-ship pool on Lido Deck.  Furnished with modern woven chaises, ottomans and upholstered settees, all cabanas come stocked with bathrobes and plush towers, handheld fans and an Evian spray mister to keep you cool.  Enhance your mood with iPods preloaded with great music.  Chilled waters are available and mid-morning, enjoy frozen graps and chocolate-covered strawberries served by your butler who will return with a glass of champagne in the afternoon.

The 14 cabanas in the spa-like Retreat are the place to relax and recharge.  Fresh fruit, salads, wraps and juices are available, as well as light breakfast options.   And, you can arrange discounted select services from the Greenhouse Spa and Salon on port days. 

Around the Lido, 8 cabanas offer a private respite in a lively area of the ship.  Lunch at the Lido cabanas will be served upon request from a menu of poolside favorites from Dive In or Lido Restaurant.  

Cabanas may be rented for the entire cruise or for the day.

Luggage Shipping Services

For your convenience Holland America Line has partnered with two luggage transport services for your convenience. Luggage Direct and Luggage Forward® two different services offering a variety of services with the sole purpose of easing your travel! By taking the handling of your luggage out of the equation you will proceed much quicker through the check-in process and save a considerable amount of time.

1. Luggage Forward
Luggage Forward is a worldwide door-to-door service allowing you to have your bags picked up at your home and delivered to your stateroom. Upon disembarkation, your bags are delivered directly back home.

Luggage Forward offers:
• International service
• Ability to bypass unpredictable checked baggage fees
• No risk of airlines losing luggage
• Full money back plus $500 on-time guarantee

Book online at or call Luggage Forward directly. From the U.S. dial 1-866-416-7447, from the UK dial +44 2033 754769 or +1-617-482-1100 if calling from any other location.

*Expert Advice: Luggage Forward is a great way to avoid lugging formal wear for pre- or post-cruise hotel/land packages – send baggage ahead of you that you won’t be needing for that portion of the trip in order to more fully enjoy your journey.

2. Luggage Direct
Luggage Direct offers you the opportunity to receive your airline boarding passes and check your luggage in to your flight while still onboard your Holland America Line ship.

To qualify as a member of the Program, you must have taken at least one eligible HAL cruise or have sailed aboard a “World’s Leading Cruise Lines” brand (Carnival Cruise Lines, Princess Cruises, Cunard Line, Seabourn Cruise Line or Costa Cruises).
