Cruise Travel: What's New on Holland America Line's Website

Holland America Line's cruise experience is just a mouse click away with the line's redesigned website. The expansive video gallery is filled with snapshots, video clips, virtual tours, ebrochures and podcasts that detail nearly all aspects of a Holland America sailing, from accommodations to dining to activities on and off the ships.

"Increasingly we find our guests turn to the Internet to view and plan their Holland America Line cruise," said Richard D. Meadows, CTC, executive vice president, marketing, sales, and guest programs. "We redesigned our site to offer a virtual experience that offers a true flavor of the cruise that awaits our guests, from what their stateroom looks like to activities in port."

A combination of updated graphics, re-organized information, and search tools underscore the details and diversity of the line's worldwide itineraries. An interactive map lets you click on a continent and zoom in on a destination with access to port details, shore excursions, and itineraries. After booking a cruise, you can visit the My Reservations page and reserve shore excursions, check-in online, and even purchase onboard gifts. Take a tour of the Holland America Line web site and, by the time you embark, you can be totally familiar with your ship and ports of call.
