For the 2013 Alaska cruise season, Holland America is adding more departures and more guests than previous years. Although they line will still have seven ships in the region, as 2012, the ms Amsterdam will double departures on new seven-night roundtrip sailings out of Vancouver.
This results in an increase in guest capacity of 6.5 percent and an 8.5 percent departure increase overall.
“Increasing our capacity in Alaska means that Holland America Line will offer nearly 1.6 million passenger days in the 2013 season,” said Richard Meadows, executive vice president, marketing, sales and guest programs. “These itineraries have always been among our most popular, and Amsterdam’s new seven day departures will allow us to bring more guests to Alaska and show off the natural beauty of this part of the world.”
The seven ships in Alaska for 2013 are the Amsterdam, Statendam, Volendam, Zaandam and Zuiderdam, from Vancouver, while Oosterdam and Westerdam sail from Seattle.
