Holland America Line has a long history dating back to its founding in the late 1800s. Holland America is now based in Seattle and owned by the Carnival Corporation. Holland America has 15 cruise ships in service worldwide and is well known for their Alaska cruises. The cruise line maintains many classic touches, including dark paneled walls and fine art work. Holland America has historically attracted an older audience, but it's common to find families onboard. Many passengers prefer Holland America over its competitors due to lower guest per square foot ratios.
