Holland America Line is widely recognised as the leader in the premium segment of the cruise industry.

The fleet of 11 ships calls upon Antarctica, South America, Australia/New Zealand, Asia, Cuba and the Caribbean, Alaska, Mexico, Canada/New England, Europe and Panama Canal plus Grand World Voyages, offering more than 500 cruises to over 470 ports of call in 98 countries, territories or dependencies. From one-day mini-holidays to once-in-a-lifetime Grand World Voyages of more than 100 days, Holland American Line visits all seven continents to call at a variety of exotic, tropical, historical, cultural and adventure-filled destinations.

The Australia and New Zealand cruises take you on a journey to a special part of the world, where you’ll see spectacular natural wonders – the Great Barrier Reef, New Zealand’s Milford Sound, the volcanoes of Hawaii. You’ll call at fabled islands like Fiji, Nouméa and Tasmania. And you’ll traverse an ocean landscape where impossibly green islands seem to float in blue lagoons clearer than you could imagine.

During your cruise to Asia, you’ll walk in the footsteps of emperors as you explore the palaces and temples they commissioned, and marvel at engineering feats from grand canals to immense fortifications. When you visit some of the world’s most exciting cities, you’ll be quickly and joyfully immersed in the buzz of cosmopolitan energy. Sample amazing new flavours in the street markets of Bangkok, trace the vestiges of colonial Britain among the modern shopping lanes of Hong Kong and stroll the serene, otherworldly gardens of Kyoto. Whichever ports you visit on your cruise to Asia, you’ll never cease to be enchanted by the fascinating histories, cultures and landscapes you encounter across this vast continent.

2021 Itineraries

Australia & New Zealand

The powerful movements of the haka, an ancient Māori war chant. The deep, spiritual meaning of the Aboriginal Dreaming. The soft caress of a tropical breeze as you paddle over coral reefs ablaze with life. Prepare to be moved by the wonders and cultures of exploring close to home.

What can you see? Everything. From the magnificence of the Great Barrier Reef to stark Aboriginal rock paintings that date back an almost unimaginable 20,000 years, from the bubbling mud pools and spouting geysers of Rotorua to the shimmering blue lagoons of Bora-Bora. Have you heard of Madang or Alotau? Good – don’t tell anyone. You should be keeping these fascinating Papua New Guinea tropical gems all to yourselves.

In 2021-22 your experience is further enhanced by a Legendary Voyage around the entire Australian continent plus extended stays or overnights in favoured ports. So go ahead and order one more round of frosty beer quayside in Sydney, take in another thrilling yacht race in Auckland, enjoy a longer chat with a village chief in Suva or simply kick back on your private verandah under the stars. You have time for it all.


It’s hard to comprehend how ancient Asian lands are until you’ve stood in the silence of a 14th–century Shinto shrine or strolled a Chinese garden unchanged for 600 years; it’s equally hard to appreciate how modern they are until you’ve soared up a Taipei skyscraper in 37 seconds flat or watched a bullet train streak past Mt. Fuji. Everywhere you go, the past meets the present head on. And no one offers more diverse views of an emerging Asia than Holland America Line.

For 2021–22 the line has planned an unparalleled series of cruises that include overnight stays in iconic cities across the region. Take extra time to explore Bangkok’s gilded temples, for example, or dine on Kobe beef in the delicacy’s hometown. Popular sailings from Hong Kong and Singapore are available once again, with calls across Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam. The Philippines serve up historic Manila, the beautiful beaches of Boracay and Puerto Princesa, famed for its underground river. Or delve into the wonders of the Indian Ocean as you go off the beaten path in Sri Lanka and Malaysia.

Fifteen fascinating itineraries in all, with endless opportunities for wonder.
