Your Destinations

Vancouver
The harbourside city of Vancouver is a bustling metropolis overflowing with rich diversity. Catering to any interest through the year, visitors and locals alike can take to the waters and enjoy endless year round water sports, venture to the old-growth forests for a tree-top adventure, or sit back and delight in an evening of entertainment provided by one of the big name acts taking the stage in downtown Vancouver.
Alaska - One thing that makes Alaska stand out against the rest is the vast array of wildlife it is home to and cruise passengers can embark on a once in a lifetime experience by going whale watching or bear spotting in this natural state. You have the opportunity to combine these breathtaking experiences with other Alaskan activities such as taking the Rocky Mountaineer train journey across Alaska.

As one of America's untouched beauties, Alaska is a natural wonder that is completely out of the ordinary. Although the tips of the mountains are scattered with dustings of white snow and there are tons of glittering glaciers, the summer months sees the sun shine throughout the day and into the evening.
Ketchikan, Alaska - Alaska's southern port of Ketchikan, known as Alaska's “First City” is best seen on foot. Shop in Tom Sawyers gift store or relax in the picturesque Thomas Basin with its small boat marina. Interesting shops line the shores of Ketchikan Creek and follow the Creek to the Totem Heritage Centre where you will find a huge collection of authentic totem poles.

Juneau, Alaska - This ‘little San Francisco' lies along the Inside Passage and offers delightful shopping. For a truly breathtaking experience why not take trip in one of our many guided helicopter rides and land on a glacier? Take a tour to Alaska's “drive in” glacier, the Mendenhall Glacier, or you may wish to embark on a wildlife quest on one of our sightseeing cruises.

Skagway, Alaska - Visit the place where thousands of gold rushers began their trek to the Klondike and for a chance to get rich, why not pan for your own gold where all you find you keep? Take a ride on the charming antique streetcars or for an unforgettable journey ride the impressive White Pass railroad with breathtaking views of Glacier Gorge, Dead Horse Gulch and Bridal Veil Falls.
Glacier Bay, Alaska - Discover Glacier Bay's abundant wildlife, including humpback whales, sea otters, porpoises, harbor seals, black bears, mountain goats, bald eagles and large colonies of seabirds.

Take in the awe-inspiring scenery as you enjoy an unforgettable day of sailing through this dazzling park, where you'll glide along emerald waters and past calving icebergs, and can breathe in the crisp, fresh air to your heart's content.

Your Ship

The beautiful garden theme of MS Volendam is reflected in an artful floral motif throughout the ship's spacious public rooms and elegant staterooms. "Flowers" can be found in abundance in the forms of floral fabrics and tapestries, as well as huge vases of tropical floral arrangements and chrysanthemums.

In addition to fresh flowers throughout the ship, Holland America Line has drawn on its collection of incredible artwork to enhance the interior of the ship's public spaces. Everything from pre-Columbian fetishes and sculptures to Renaissance-era fountains imported from Italy are included in its hallway galleries. At the heart of the ship an elegant sculpture by Luciano Vistosi, inspired by the myriad of moods and colors of a kaleidoscope, greets visitors in a soaring three-story atrium.

Throughout the ship there are restaurants to suit every mood, from a casual lunch by the pool to authentic Italian cuisine to a legendary experience at Le Cirque to a perfectly grilled porterhouse steak. Savor the many diverse restaurants and delicious menus inspired by the latest trends.

Evenings on board brim with choices. Take in a thrilling show in the lounge, try your luck in the Casino, or sing along in the piano bar. Explore the varied gathering places to suit every taste.
