Sail through Seattle's beautiful Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca on your way to Alaska's forested isles, icy-blue glaciers and charming frontier ports. Choose the Glacier Bay route and watch in wonder as whales, puffins and the park's tidewater glaciers come into view. Navigate intimate Tracy Arm to the twin faces of the Sawyer Glaciers or cruise to Wrangell-St. Elias, North America's largest national park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and experience the colossal Hubbard Glacier and St. Elias Mountain Range. Holland America Line has been cruising Alaska for over 56 years; let us share with you its wonders and wild beauty.

Featured Ports and Scenic Cruising

Holland America Alaska Cruising Glacier Bay National Park  
Marvel at nature's unrelenting power as you witness the birth of massive icebergs calving from gigantic glaciers. Glacier Bay National Park has more actively calving tidewater glaciers than anywhere else on earth. As a Biosphere Reserve and World Heritage Site, Glacier Bay National Park also protects a unique ecosystem of plants and animals. Search for humpback and killer whales, Stellar sea lions and harbor seals, moose and bald eagles.

Holland America Alaska Cruising Hubbard Glacier  
Glaciers are seldom known for the ability to travel quickly, but Hubbard Glacier has been regarded as the "Galloping Glacier". Hubbard Glacier is the largest tidewater glacier on the North American continent. A tidewater glacier calves when giant pieces of ice crack off the head of the glacier and fall into the sea. The glacier stretches 76 miles into the sea at Yakutat Bay and Disenchantment Bay.
