The Holland America Experience

Holland America Line has been a recognised leader in cruising, taking guests to exotic destinations around the world. Holland America was founded in 1873 as the Netherlands-American Steamship Company. Because it was headquartered in Rotterdam and provided service to the Americas, it became known as Holland America Line (HAL).

Within 25 years, HAL owned a fleet of six cargo and passenger ships and operated between Holland and the Dutch East Indies. The line was primarily a carrier of immigrants from Europe to the United States until well after the turn of the century, carrying 850,000 to new lives in the New World.

In 1895 the company offered its first vacation cruise. Holland America Line now has a fleet of 15 ships that offer more than 500 cruises each year and visit all seven continents. Holland America Line's recent fleet-wide Signature of Excellence enhancements are evident in every aspect of the cruise experience offering guests more luxurious accommodations, new entertainment and enrichment programs, enhanced dining experiences and more creative activities.
