Holland America Line has announced that a seventh ship will be deployed to Alaska for the 2017 Summer season.

The ms Oosterdam will be joining ms Amsterdam, ms Eurodam, ms Nieuw Amsterdam, ms Noordam, ms Volendam and ms Zaandam for a total of 135 Alaska departures.

Orlando Ashford, Holland America Line’s president said:

“Our award-winning Alaska cruises are at the heart of our global itineraries, and adding Oosterdam to the region in 2017 will allow even more guests to join in celebrating the exciting milestone of our 70th year inAlaska. As Seattle’s hometown cruise line, we’re thrilled to be sailing three ships from our local home port for the next Alaska season.”

Oosterdam is slated to sail 21 seven-day cruises roundtrip from Seattle, Washington, from April through September. Eurodam will depart Seattle on 22 roundtrip seven-day cruises, while Amsterdam is scheduled to sail one seven-day itinerary from Seattle followed by nine 14-day Great Alaskan Explorer voyages.

Oosterdam’s seven-day roundtrip Seattle itineraries will call at Juneau, Sitka and Ketchikan, Alaska; andVictoria, British Columbia, Canada. Guests on board will enjoy scenic cruising in Puget Sound upon departingSeattle, as well as in Stephens Passage and Hubbard Glacier in Alaska.

Holland America Line will be celebrating 70 years in Alaska in 2017 which the ms Oosterdam will take full advantage of with celebrations. More details will be released at a later date. Also in 2017, Eurodam will replace ms Westerdam sailing from Seattle. The addition of another Signature Class ship means more new restaurants and venues will be available for guests to enjoy on Alaska sailings.
