Holland America Line celebrates its 150th anniversary with the addition of authentic Heritage Cruises, focused on ports rich in the brand’s history and featuring unique onboard and shoreside experiences.
Heritage Cruises are special sailings set to take place during the entirety of the cruise line’s 150th anniversary, revisiting some of the historic ports across the globe.
