Holland America Line Reveals 2024 – 2025 West Coast Cruises

Holland America Line has officially opened cruise bookings for its 2024 – 2025 West Coast season from San Diego, California, and Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada! Guests will have the opportunity to see the world from their doorstep, without international air, or by taking a flight from Canada.

“Holland America Line continues to cultivate our North America homeport cruises to offer a diverse range of destinations without the need for long-haul air,” said Beth Bodensteiner, Holland America Line’s chief commercial officer. “Our West Coast departures are a rich collection of close-to-home itineraries, and by offering the ability to book back-to-back cruises in different regions our guests can check off more of their must-do travel experiences in one vacation.”


  • Travel from the West Coast to explore the vibrant cultures of Mexico, Hawaii, the Pacific Coast, and the Panama Canal on five ships across 42 cruises.
  • Sailings are roundtrip from San Diego, roundtrip from Vancouver, or begin or end in either of the two ports.
  • Travel from September 2024 through May 2025 and embark on cruises ranging from a four-day voyage along the Pacific Coast to a 21-day transit of the Panama Canal. 
  • Itineraries are curated to include popular ports alongside lesser-visited locales that showcase each region’s natural beauty, cultural diversity, and rich history.

The brand features more Panama Canal Collectors’ Voyages, beginning with a Hawaii cruise and expanding the canal transit experience to the eastern Caribbean. Many of the other cruises can be extended into Collectors’ Voyages to create the ultimate exploration with more economical fares than booking the cruises individually. Ranging from 14 to 31 days, these longer journeys combine non-repeating, back-to-back itineraries, enabling guests to visit more than one region.
