Holland America Line

For nearly 145 years, Holland America Line has been introducing guests to new places and new cultures. Cruising Alaska since before it was a state, Holland America Line is the undisputed expert on Alaska. The Westerdam* is one of Holland America Line’s mid-sized cruise ships designed specifically to cruise Alaskan waters. Measuring 936 feet in length and 105 feet wide, the Westerdam* accommodates 1,964 guests. 

Holland America Line’s first Vista-class cruise ship, Westerdam* recently emerged from dry dock with exciting updates—including a new lounge, dining, and entertainment venues, such as Music Walk™ with Lincoln Center Stage, B.B. King’s Blues Club, and Billboard Onboard. Guests can choose from among delectable specialty restaurants, hone culinary skills with America’s Test Kitchen, and thrill to BBC Earth Experiences.

Onboard Activities

Lincoln Center Stage

In an exclusive partnership with the world’s leading center for the performing arts, Holland America proudly presents Lincoln Center Stage, showcasing outstanding musicians performing multiple programs of chamber music most evenings, as well as afternoon recitals during leisurely days at sea.


B.B. King's Blues Club

Direct from Beale Street, B.B. King's All Stars bring the best of Memphis music to sea. From funky and fast to soulful and smooth, enjoy dancing and try specialty cocktails like the Lucille and Rock Me Baby.

BBC Earth Experiences

Holland America partnered with BBC Earth to bring guests unforgettable new ways to experience the world's natural wonders. Through the innovative and breathtaking programming, guests will be taken closer to the ocean and the natural world through groundbreaking concerts and films.

Holland America Line's exclusive destination programming is designed to deepen your understanding of the places you visit. It’s indispensable travel resources and opportunities to engage with experts, as well as local insiders, make exploring each port of call more vivid and meaningful.

Greenhouse Spa and Salon

During a leisurely day at sea, few places help you refresh, relax and rejuvenate like the Greenhouse Spa & Salon®. This heavenly retreat nurtures every aspect of your well-being with renowned spa rituals and healing touches. In the spa, pamper your skin with facial treatments featuring premium, naturally sourced ingredients. Nurture your body, too, with massage treatments employing time-honored, hands-on massage techniques gleaned from around the world.

*Because of changes to Holland America's deployment schedule, the CR Dentistry Update Alaska Cruise will now be held on the Westerdam rather than the originally scheduled Oosterdam. Both Oosterdam and Westerdam are Vista-Class ships featuring the same signature Holland America Line amenities.
