For those who wish to travel even further, there’ll be 16 different Land+Sea Journeys that combine a three-, four- or seven-day Alaska cruise with an inland exploration of Denali National Park. Holland America is the only cruise line that extends land tour options up to Canada’s Yukon Territory.

Plus, for a limited time, guests who book 2022 Alaska cruises and Land+Sea Journeys by Feb. 28, 2021 can receive up to $2,300 in amenities, including a free Signature Beverage Package, pre-paid gratuities, free Signature Package and 50% reduced deposits, plus free Wi-Fi for suites. Alaska cruise pricing starts at $899 per person, double occupancy, for a seven-day sailing (taxes, fees and port expenses are additional).

“It’s incredible to think that Holland America Line has been taking guests to Alaska longer than it’s been a state, and because 2022 is our 75th year we want to allow plenty of time for guests to plan ahead,” said Gus Antorcha, Holland America Line’s president. “Alaska is a destination where if you’ve never been, it’s on your bucket list and if you have been ,you’re eager to go back.”
