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.
