Summary

 

From May to September each year Westerdam cruises the last frontier – Alaska – discovering her icy straits and rugged landscapes as she sails seven nights between Vancouver and Seward (or vice versa).  As the weather cools down in Alaska, Westerdam heads into Asia.  While she does feature some shorter 10 to 14 night itineraries, most of her Asia explorations are in depth discoveries of up to 30 days!

View all Westerdam cruises, or view more options for Holland America cruises.

Westerdam received extensive enhancements as part of a $300 million brand initiative. New bar, entertainment and dining venues, plus completely reimagined suites debuted for the 2017 Europe season.

Enjoy dazzling entertainment from your very first night on board. As part of the updates, new music venues have been added: Lincoln Center Stage, featuring world-class musicians performing chamber music, and Billboard Onboard, rocking the house with 50 years of chart-topping hits. These venues join the already popular B.B. King’s Blues Club, completing our new “Music Walk” experience.

Be sure to check out the new Exploration Central located high atop the ship; it’s the heartbeat of the Holland America Line destination experience. Plus, Westerdam will be the first to feature the new Rijksmuseum at Sea.
