Holland America Extends Stay in Haines, Alaska for Independence Day Celebrations

If you’re sailing onboard Holland America’s ms Zaandam this July 1, you’re in for a treat!

Our office received notification today from the cruise line that reads: In order for guests to enjoy a fireworks display, the call at Haines will be postponed until midnight on July 4th.

Originally, the ship was to leave the port at 9 pm. Imagine viewing fireworks outdoors on deck, in the comfort of ms Zaandam and with the hospitality of the ship’s crew.

This will also allow guests more time to spend at port whether that’s exploring Haines or Skagway, a 25 minute ferry ride away.

The itinerary is as follows:
Sunday, July 1 – Seward, Alaska
Monday, July 2 – At sea
Tuesday, July 3 – Glacier Bay, Alaska
Wednesday, July 4 – Haines, Alaska
Thursday, July 5 – Juneau, Alaska
Friday, July 6 – Ketchikan, Alaska
Saturday, July 7 – Inside Passage
Sunday, July 8 – Vancouver, BC, Canada
