has three thousand rivers, three million lakes and more than five thousand glaciers. From the snowy north to the rich farmland of the interior and the

Bay National Park; home to some of Alaska's most impressive tidewater glaciers. On one of Holland America Line's perfectly-sized ships you can be assured of experiencing this

spectacular part of the world in the most scenic and comfortable way.

Enjoy elegant lounges adorned with priceless antiques and fresh flowers…dining rooms that

sparkle with crystal and fine china…delicious dining and award-winning service, and above all

gracious hospitality. There are picture windows and teak promenades from which to view the

emerald forests and spell binding glaciers of Alaska's Inside Passage, perhaps even a glimpse of

orca whales and sea lions swimming in the wake of your ship.

Deepen your appreciation of the area as live musicians accompany riveting Alaska footage

presented by BBC Earth. Gain insights into time-honoured traditions as you visit with

tribal members, artists, performers and local wildlife experts onboard. Then continue your

explorations ashore with HAL's immersive EXC Tours™.

From Vancouver, cruise past evergreen forests and

native fishing villages to Juneau, Alaska's Capital,

where you'll see your first glacier, the mighty

Mendenhall. Then travel on to the old gold rush

frontier town of Skagway, with its well-preserved

boardwalks and "wild west" saloons. The highlight

of every Alaska cruise is a day spent at Glacier Bay

National Park where you have a front row view of the

fabulous spires, pinnacles and pillars of ice, and be

told about the phenomena of glaciers by the onboard

park naturalist. Finally, the quaint weathered town

of Ketchikan offers a park full of mystical totem poles

and excursions to the stunning "Misty Fjords".

On your travels you'll hopefully glimpse the

breeching of great hump-back whales in the wake of

your ship and seals basking on glacial icebergs. Watch

majestic bald-headed eagles soaring overhead and

see sock-eyed salmon turning rivers red.
