Koningsdam sails its maiden Alaska season with seven-day Inside Passage cruises round-trip Vancouver

Bevy of Alaska perks in HAL’s ‘View & Verandah’ promotion

Stateroom upgrades, on-board spending money, a beverage card and a kids sail free offer are among the promotions for Holland America Line’s Alaska.

The 2020 season features the addition of Koningsdam, the line's newest class of ship.

Reduced deposit and 10% off excursions

With the ‘View & Verandah’ promotion, travelers who book select Alaska cruises and Land+Sea Journeys will receive a stateroom upgrade, on-board credit up to $500 per room for the first and second guest, free or reduced fares for kids, 50% reduced deposit and 10% off select shore excursions when booked by Feb. 28.

Suite bookings also receive prepaid stateroom gratuities. Plus, when View & Verandah bookings are made by Jan. 17, up to two guests also receive a $50 beverage card.

From April through September, seven ships will sail round-trip from Seattle or Vancouver, BC, or one-way between Seward (Anchorage) and Vancouver. Besides Koningsdam, they include Eurodam, Maasdam, Noordam, Oosterdam, Volendam and Westerdam.

Mid-sized ships

‘In a sea of large, overcrowded ships, Holland America Line's ships stand out and are mid-sized by design, so travelers have plenty of room at the rail to take in the sights,’ President Orlando Ashford said.

Fifteen different Land+Sea Journeys combine a three-, four- or seven-day cruise with an inland exploration that spends up to three nights at Denali National Park and Preserve. Leveraging insider knowledge and an extensive network of its own land assets including hotels, railcars and motorcoaches, Holland America is the only line that extends land tour options all the way to Dawson City, the heart of the Klondike Gold Rush, and the reaches of the Yukon Territory.

New in 2020

Koningsdam sails its maiden Alaska season with seven-day Inside Passage cruises round-trip Vancouver. This newest class of HAL ship has a Music Walk, Rolling Stone Rock Room, the innovative World Stage, French brasserie Rudi's Sel de Mer, Nami Sushi and an abundance of verandah staterooms. HAL is the only line with seven-day round-trips from Vancouver that include Glacier Bay National Park.

14-day in-depth voyages

Fourteen-day Great Alaska Explorer EXC In-Depth Voyages aboard Maasdam offer a new way to explore. The itineraries, also round-trip Vancouver, call at seldom-visited ports such as Homer and Valdez and offer interactive workshops, lectures and theme-based shore excursions in areas like photography, nature, food, history and active tours.

All Yukon itineraries, including the popular 10-day Yukon+Double Denali Land+Sea Journey, now feature two nights in Dawson in the heart of the Yukon.

The 14-day Double Denali+Seward Land+Sea Journey expands in 2020 with an added night at the Alyeska Resort in the Chugach Mountains.
