Holland America Line, part of the Carnival Corporation family, is steeped in 145 years of Dutch maritime tradition. Established in 1873, it served primarily ferry passengers (the majority were emigrants) between the Netherlands and the US. Today, the cruise line is made up of 11 mid-sized cruise ships. The majority of Holland America Line’s ships are classed as mid-sized, carrying between 1,432 and 2,500 passengers. Classic HAL ships including Westerdam, Oosterdam, Noordam and Eurodam recently underwent extensive refurbishments and have been updated with new bar, entertainment and dining venues. The line’s new 2,668-passenger ship, Rotterdam, will launch in August 2021 and will be the third in the Pinnacle-class after Koningsdam and Nieuw Statendam. In 2019, HAL bid farewell to its oldest and smallest ship, Prinsendam, and this year said goodbye to Rotterdam and Amsterdam, both of which were sold to Fred Olsen Cruise lines as well as older S-Class ships Maasdam and Veendam.
