Holland America asserts that its attention to detail, service and crew, extensive amenities, and food/dining experience distinguish it from other cruise lines. Offering a Culinary Arts Center, a New York Times-powered Internet café, and enhanced stateroom features — such as flat-screen TVs — the line continues to stay on the cutting edge of cruising amenities.
Holland America’s philosophy of cruising is rooted deep in 140 years of experience. Throughout this period, the line’s offerings have grown to nearly 500 cruises with the fleet of elegant ships sailing to 314 ports of call. The sophisticated onboard atmosphere — from award-winning service to five-star dining — places Holland America as the leader in cruising’s premium segment.
Holland America garners praise for everything from its value to its itineraries and private island, Half Moon Cay. The line’s achievements also extend beyond these awards with initiatives such as the Signature of Excellence program; at its conclusion, the program will result in comprehensive ship enhancements (to the tune of $425 million) in the areas of accommodations, dining, service, itineraries, and enrichment programs.
