Holland America Line Enhances Alaska CruiseTour Program for 2013

Posted November 7th, 2012

In 2013, Holland America Line is expanding its Alaska CruiseTour program with some notable additions, including 3 new Triple Denali itineraries, 4 new short pre/post "Sampler" tours for guests with limited time and other enhancements to existing CruiseTours. The cruise line has also designed 4 of its most popular tours to allow them to begin and end in Seattle.

Ranging in total length from 10 to 20 days, all CruiseTours combine a 3, 4 or 7 day Inside Passage Holland America Line cruise, with in-depth overland tours. CruiseTours are created to highlight the best of Alaska's wilderness, wildlife, native culture and history. Six tours also feature Canada's Yukon Territory with its Klondike Gold Rush Heritage and pristine national parks such as Kluane National Park and Tombstone Park.

"As an industry leader in Alaska for the past 65 years, Holland America Line is adept at creating personalised holiday experiences that combine Alaska's must-see highlights with its seldom-seen wonders," said Richard Meadows, Executive Vice President, Marketing, Sales and Guest Programs for Holland America Line. "Our CruiseTours are the perfect choice for guests looking for more in-depth exploration because they feature the wonders of Alaska by both land and sea."

CruiseTours feature luxurious glass-domed McKinley Explorer rail cars with comfortable, forward-facing seats and expert commentary by guides. Holland America's exclusive Explorer Coaches also create a superior environment for travelling the highway on Denali and Yukon tours, with roomy leather seats, first-class legroom and no more than 44 travellers.

Also new for the 2013 Alaska season, ms Amsterdam will join ms Volendam and ms Zuiderdam on select CruiseTours during the seven-day Inside Passage itineraries sailing round-trip from Vancouver. Also unique to Holland America Line's cruise experiences is the Alaska-inspired cuisine featured throughout both cruise and land components. Additionally, knowledgeable interpreters, tour concierges and Alaska travel guides are present on most CruiseTours and Alaska sailings.
