Perhaps the most regal cruise line in existence, Holland America Cruise Alaska is the best choice for your ultimate Alaska vacation.
Ah, the Dam ships! (Holland America Line's ships all end in 'dam' - Amsterdam, Ryndam, Statendam, Zuiderdam, etc...) Hahaha...
Holland America Line offers you the largest quantity of tour options for a Ketchikan Alaska Cruise as their 7 cruise ships are in port almost 140 times a season! And luckily, every ship makes a stop in Ketchikan!
Holland America Cruise Alaska is know for their classic style of cruising. They were the first cruise line to offer Alaska cruises and have been perfecting the art of Cruising for close to two thousand years!
While Holland America Line's clientele is typically wealthy and conservative, they are working hard to encourage a younger crowd by offering features that are most requested on cruises - internet access, 'As you Wish' dining, and more.
