Wash., June 7, 2018 — Holland America Line has
launched a completely reimagined website at HollandAmerica.com centered around a new,
intuitive online booking process, easy navigation, bold images that capture the
cruise experience and detailed information, making it an up-to-date resource
for both consumers and travel professionals.
The focal point of the homepage is a new cruise search toolbar that allows
visitors to easily select where they want to cruise, the port of departure,
dates and cruise length. The homepage also features a top navigational menu
that provides quick access to Holland America Line's cruising destinations,
onboard experiences, cruise fare offers and information for guests who already
"Just has we have elevated all aspects of the guest experience on board, we
wanted our website to be as informative and easy as possible," said Orlando
Ashford, Holland America Line's president. "The new website is very intuitive
and user-friendly, and those who want to learn more about the Holland America
Line experience, research itineraries or make an online booking are going to
appreciate the ease of functionality."
Planning a Holland
America Line Cruise is Easy
The new cruise-planning toolbar on the homepage lets guests select where, when
and how long they want to cruise, the resulting cruise itineraries are
displayed on a new page with the option of using additional, deeper filters
that include ship, specific ports of call, a more precise region, and Land
First or Cruise First for Alaska Land+Sea Journeys.
Once a cruise itinerary is selected, a new page displays the itinerary,
stateroom options, ship details and activities on that particular cruise. The
Itinerary tab shows the day-to-day route with an interactive map that breaks
the cruise down by day and follows the journey showing ports and points of
interest. Web users may opt for a traditional list view as well.
The Rooms tab compares accommodations and pricing, giving guests the ability to
select their preferred location (forward, midship or aft). The cruise fare then
displays, showing alternative cruising dates for rate comparison. The Ships tab
provides history and insight about the ship, while Activities showcases all of
the great enrichment and entertainment experiences on board, including
Explorations Central, America's Test Kitchen, Lincoln Center Stage, B.B. King's
Blues Club, BBC Earth performances and more.
When all cruise selections have been finalized, the booking can be reserved
through an easy check-out process and assigned to a travel professional if the
