Holland America Line Offers Best-Value Pricing For Peak And Shoulder Season Alaska Cruises And Cruisetours

Seattle (March 31, 2005) – Holland America Line has traveled from the north coast to the southeast coast, through the interior, and up into the Arctic Circle to locate the most memorable destinations in Alaska and the Yukon Territory to share with Cruise and CruiseTour guests. To ensure a favorite itinerary and preferred month, travelers should secure bookings now. Alaska offers amazing wilderness, wildlife and glacier viewing. As a matter of fact, Holland America Line can get guests to more National Parks than anyone else, including Tombstone Territorial Park – new in 2005. And, by booking now, guests take advantage of Holland America Line’s very attractive pricing for May 2005 Cruises and CruiseTours.


“Most visitors to Alaska are seeking a wilderness experience, especially in the national parks of Alaska and the Yukon. May offers abundant wildlife viewing and the opportunity to see new arrivals such as cubs, calves and kids,” said Richard D. Meadows, CTC, senior vice president, marketing and sales. “Since May is one of the two driest, sunniest months of the year, it's a photographer's dream. Great values, abundant sunshine and the grandeur of the Alaskan landscape make for an exceptional combination.”

With 58 years of experience in Alaska, Holland America Line offers the most comprehensive itineraries of any cruise line in the industry, covering the most popular ports to hidden attractions. Offering three cruise itineraries and 28 CruiseTours, they cover just about anywhere a guest has dreamt of exploring. May pricing for the seven-day Glacier Discovery Cruise, one-way between Vancouver and Anchorage, starts at $599; Glacier Bay Inside Passage, roundtrip Vancouver, starts at $749; and Alaskan Explorer, roundtrip Seattle, starts at $840. Great CruiseTour values in May include 11- to 15-day Great Land CruiseTours from $1,669, and 11- to 14-day Glacier Discovery CruiseTours from $1,799.

There are also exceptional values for extended families. Holland America Line offers a Family Reunion Program that is available to families booking five staterooms or more on any cruise. The program features such benefits as special group pricing; a Fountain Soda Package for every member of the family (unlimited soft drinks throughout the voyage); a family photo per stateroom; and dinner for the entire family in the line’s alternative Pinnacle Grill Restaurant.

Early and Late Alaska Periods
While July and August tend to be the fastest booking months, the early and late seasonal periods are wonderful times to visit Alaska. Besides offering attractive values, there is still snow on the mountains in May, which allows for amazing topographical contrast with mesmerizing evening shadows, as well as abundant daylight. September offers stunning colors as autumn commences showing off burnt orange, red and gold vegetation, and wildlife activities tend to increase with animals feeding in anticipation of the upcoming winter season.

With seven ships and 134 departures from Seattle, Vancouver, British Columbia and Seward, Alaska, there are numerous choices. Holland America Line offers more cruises and cruisetours featuring Glacier Bay National Park and Denali National Park than any other company, and offers comprehensive excursion choices from historical tours to kayaking, helicopter flightseeing and glacier walkabouts, gold panning and Alaska Salmon bakes.
