Holland America Line

Maritime Travel Perk: Two specialty dinners for two!

Holland America is arguably the most historic and tradition-laden cruise line on the seas. Its first ship, the Rotterdam, set sail on a voyage between Holland and New York in 1873, and today, 15 classic Holland America ships sail all around the globe. While now a U.S.-based cruise line, Holland America retains strong ties with the Netherlands. Ships in the fleet all bear the suffix “dam” – names inspired by actual dams that bridge the rivers of the Netherlands.

“It’s time to take another look at Holland America! Enjoy the classic style of this premium cruise line. Cruising with Holland America is just such an elegant and uplifting experience. The food is great and the service is so gracious. They strike the right balance between casual and elegant.”
