Setting sail from Seattle
Eclectic Seattle is a jumble of different neighbourhoods, each with its own distinctive character. Fremont, the self-proclaimed 'centre of the universe', is an arty, bohemian district where you'll find everything from trolls lurking under bridges to a statue of Lenin, while Capitol Hill is characterised by creaking mansions and trendy boutiques, and waterfront Ballard has a fascinating Scandinavian heritage. Seattle also enjoys a stunning natural setting, surrounded by forests, mountains and the broad sweep of Puget Sound, and boasts a wealth of green spaces.
Food food food – Seattle is a thriving centre for food enthusiasts using the best local ingredients.
United States: Juneau
Alaska's state capital is isolated and remote, accessible only by plane or by boat thanks to its dramatic hillside location. The wild hinterland is thick with forest, sculpted by the glaciers of the Juneau Ice Field, while down at the water's edge the harbour bustles with fishing boats and seaplanes.
United States: Glacier Bay
United States: Sitka
Sitka was founded by Russian fur traders in 1799 as the city of New Archangel, and there is still a discernible Russian influence here, including the distinctive St Michael’s Orthodox Cathedral. The town also enjoys spectacular natural surroundings, facing the Pacific Ocean and dramatic Mount Edgecumbe.
United States: Ketchikan
Ketchikan is a great introduction to Alaska’s natural attractions, situated at the foot of towering Deer Mountain and within easy reach of the Misty Fjords. The colourful wooden buildings of Creek Street, the old red light district, are a reminder of Ketchikan’s former status as a rough and ready frontier town; these days, things are rather more civilised!
Victoria is the capital of British Columbia and Canada’s westernmost city, with a distinctly English feel that occasionally borders on the twee. It’s a very walkable city, with handsome 19th century architecture, verdant parks and a lively harbour, and, this being Canada, the great outdoors is never far away.
Arriving in Seattle
Wander through Pike Place market – make sure you visit the fish stall, a surprise awaits!
Your home from home
A Holland America Signature-class ship, Eurodam carries just over 2,000 passengers – still mid-sized by today’s standards, and reflecting a contemporary take on the company’s lengthy heritage.
What we love
Some excellent dining choices on this gracious ship give guests a chance to ring the changes in the evenings - entertainment too is varied and stimulating. In keeping with a long Holland America Line tradition, the ship features an extraordinary art collection - in this instance themed around the Dutch Golden Age, ranging from 17th Century watercolour maps to a contemporary reinterpretation of Rembrandt's famous painting The Night Watch.
|Crew||929 International Staff|
Holland America guests are sociable and relaxed, with enquiring minds and a participatory spirit - there are lots of classes and workshops to enjoy on board, with new skills to learn while at sea, and new places to explore ashore.
|Cruising Speed||24 knots|
