Holland America Line is introducing a collection of longer 25 to 59-day cruises called Legendary Voyages.

These sailings combine the ceremony of Holland America’s Grand Voyages with itineraries that feature a comprehensive collection of ports. Most of the line’s Legendary Voyages will sail roundtrip to and/or from a North American homeport, allowing travelers easy access to see the world.

“As the leader in long itineraries, Holland America Line is excited to continue to connect our deployment and onboard programming to further enrich the guest experience,” said Kacy Cole, vice president of marketing and e-commerce, Holland America Line.

“The destination-rich itineraries found on Legendary Voyages are carefully crafted to allow guests to linger longer and enjoy the journey as well as the destination. With many departures from North America, this creates yet another way for our guests to see the world from their doorstep.”

Three Legendary Voyages are brand-new itineraries for Holland America:

  • The previously-announced 28-day “Arctic Circle Solstice” that heads north to the Arctic Circle and features 11 calls in Alaska, including lesser-visited ports like Nome and Homer.
  • 53-day “Majestic Japan” with 21 total ports, 13 calls throughout Japan, and overnights at Yokohama (Tokyo) and Kobe.
  • 28-day “Coral Triangle, Volcanoes and The Great Barrier Reef” that explores 10 ports in five countries, with scenic cruising in the Great Barrier Reef, Torres Strait, and past the Kumba and Krakatau volcanoes.
