Itineraries available include a seven night roundtrip Vancouver sailing Inside Passage calling at Tracy Arm, Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan, including a full day cruising Glacier Bay National Park and two days of sailing the scenic Inside Passage. Prices start at £699 per person for a 7-night cruise in May 2017.

Europe – seven dedicated ships for 2017 European cruises
After its unveiling and maiden voyage earlier this year, the new Pinnacle ship ms Koningsdam returns to Europe for 2017. Offering seven to 14-night cruises, the ship will be deployed to Baltic, Fjords and Northern Isles cruises from Amsterdam between May and September. There will also be some longer spring Mediterranean cruises from Civitavecchia, the port of Rome. A seven night Viking Sagas Fjords Cruise onboard ms Koningsdam starts from £849 per person based on 14 May 2017.  

Leisurely Mediterranean cruises mean a choice of marquee cities combined with more unusual destinations, long days ashore and overnights in port.  For example a 12-night Adriatic Dream cruise departing 27 April 2017 from Civitavecchia (Rome) onboard ms Westerdam visits Messina (Sicily), Valletta (Malta – overnight onboard); Mgarr (Gozo), Corfu, Dubrovnik (Croatia), Kotor (Montenegro), Korcula (Croatia), Koper (Slovenia) and ends with an overnight onboard in Venice.  Prices start from £1,399 per person.  

With seven of Holland America Line’s ships, including Pinnacle & Vista-class ships, heading to Europe, it means there will be more private balconies and more five star amenities.  ms Zuiderdam, for example, offers a programme of 12-night Baltic cruises roundtrip Copenhagen with an overnight in the city and ports of call at St. Petersburg (overnight), Stockholm, and Copenhagen, whilst the flagship ms Rotterdam cruises seven to 14-night Fjords, Baltic and North Cape itineraries.  

Onboard these ships, Holland America Line’s new partnerships with BBC Earth, Rijksmuseum at Sea, the Music Walk, featuring Billboard Onboard, classical music from Lincoln Centre Stage and B.B. Kings All Star blues band, will enhance the experience for guests.
