Holland America

As the winner of 17 consecutive "Best Overall Cruise Value" awards from the World Ocean and Cruise Liner Society, and consistently among the highest-rated premium cruise lines year after year in Conde Nast Traveler's "Readers' Choice Awards" and Travel + Leisure magazine's, "World's Best" awards, Holland America Line is known for gracious and attentive service.
Its ships have one of the highest staff-members-to-guest ratios. Spacious staterooms average 25 percent larger and verandahs twice as large as those on other lines' ships. Dining choices include formal elegance, intimate specialty dining, casual fare and complimentary 24-hour room service.

Holland America Line's ongoing Signature of Excellence initiative has invested $525 million in shipboard enhancements including the Culinary Arts Center presented by Food & Wine magazine "a state-of-the-art onboard show kitchen" where more than 60 celebrated guest chefs and culinary experts provide cooking demonstrations and classes, Explorations Café powered by the New York Times, teens-only activity areas, new stateroom amenities including flat-panel TVs and plush-top Mariner’s Dream Beds.

With the introduction of the 2,104 passenger ms Eurodam in June, 2008, Holland America Line’s fleet grew to 14 ships, offering nearly 500 cruises from more than 25 home ports. Itineraries range from two to 108 days, visit all seven continents and all of Travel + Leisure magazine’s "Top 25 Cruise Destinations." A 15th ship, ms Nieuw Amsterdam, is scheduled to join the fleet in July 2010.

What MY TRAVEL AGENT likes about Holland America:

2. Stylish and comfortable ships with extra measures of personal comfort, staterooms averaging 25-50% larger then other line’s ships, one of the highest staff members to guests ratios, and the classic elegance preferred by experienced cruisers.


3. The perfect choice for multi-generational family groups, with Club HAL for kids, spa and fitness programs for adults and a range of dining option for all.
