Voyages Cruise Guide – What’s Inside:

Voyages by U.S. Tours presents its 20-page inaugural guide to cruise opportunities on the oceans and rivers of the world. This new division of respected operator U.S. Tours aims to become “group cruise central” for professional tour planners. In the guide, profiles of 10 partner lines provide highlights of each cruise company and suggested voyages. These partners include Celebrity, Costa, Cunard, Holland America, Princess and Royal Caribbean, plus small-ship lines AmaWaterways, American Queen Steamboat, Seabourn and Victory. From beginning to end, Voyages by U.S. Tours handles all the details of planning a cruise, including collecting deposits and final payments, coordinating schedules, getting documents, arranging for special side trips and just going to bat for you should a problem arise. Its dedicated group department also can offer complimentary meeting space on the ship if needed and coordinate any special events you might wish to include.

Holland America Line operates mid-sized cruise ships worldwide, offering traditional-style cruising with modern amenities.

Fleet size

The current fleet consists of 14 mid-sized cruise ships carrying between 1,258 and 2,648 passengers.


Holland America serves all seven continents, operating more than 500 sailings a year to the Caribbean, Alaska, Europe, Mexico, South America, Antarctica, the Panama Canal, Australia, New Zealand and Asia. Cruises generally last four to 40 days.

Discernible differences

Known for its traditional style and high level of service, Holland America is expanding the onboard experience with new suite amenities, and new dining and entertainment options. Partnerships with entertainment and personal enrichment brands—including Lincoln Center Stage; B.B. King’s Blues Club; Billboard Onboard; BBC Earth; O, The Oprah Magazine; America’s Test Kitchen; Microsoft Windows; The New York Times; and Rijksmuseum—are creating new onboard programming.

Group policies

Group programs start with five or more cabins. One free tour conductor spot is included with every 15 lower berths booked, and there are opportunities to earn bonus commissions. The Group Advantage Program offers amenities to customize group benefits.

What’s new

Holland America is spending $300 million on brand enhancements, including programs focused on destination immersion and personalized travel. A new ship, the Nieuw Statendam, is being introduced at the end of 2018, and a sister ship will be delivered in 2021.

Awards won

Consistently among the highest-rated cruise lines in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice and Travel + Leisure World’s Best awards.
