Onboard Experience

On Board Our Ships

All staterooms and public areas are frequently and thoroughly sanitized with medical-grade disinfectant proven to kill coronaviruses. Hand-washing stations and hand sanitizer dispensers are available throughout every ship.

Enhanced Air Filtration

We have enhanced the air-handling systems on board all ships using a combination of increased circulation of fresh air together with upgraded air filtration.

24/7 Medical Care

Every ship has a team of experienced doctors and nurses trained to manage a broad range of medical conditions, including COVID-19. Our award-winning onboard medical centers are fully equipped with testing and treatment capabilities if needed.

Mask Policy

Masks on board are recommended but not required indoors or outdoors. We highly recommend guests wear a mask in the World Stage and other entertainment areas, casino, spa treatment rooms, Club HAL and during other congregate events. For more details, view our FAQs

On-Shore Experience

Going Ashore

Keeping you safe on shore is one of our highest priorities. All ports welcome Holland America Line shore excursions and while some ports allow independent tours and self-exploration, others may require a shore excursion provided by Holland America Line to go ashore. Throughout your cruise, we constantly review all local health and safety guidelines to keep you informed and ready to explore safely.
