This is a limited-time offer, so let’s just get right to it: Kids sail for free on 2020 Holland America Line cruises to Alaska, Europe, Canada and New England. The deal lasts through Sept. 26, and is a gamechanger for families seeking affordable sails next year.


With the new Who’s in Your Crew? promotion from Holland America Line, families can explore new destinations next summer with select sailings on Alaska Land+Sea Journeys included in the discount. The offer applies to kids booked as a third or fourth guest in the same stateroom.


The offer also includes up to $800 in onboard credits, per stateroom; a complimentary Pinnacle Grill specialty dinner for two; 50 percent reduced deposit prices; and a $25 beverage card per person, making the whole stay a lot more affordable for everyone.

For families that want to splurge a little, Verandah stateroom and suite bookings receive extra perks, like a Premium Internet Package.


Choose from the best cruises included in the offer, beginning with Enchanting Europe. This sailing ventures from the North Cape to the Mediterranean. Available on six Holland America Line ships, guests venture through Europe, including the Baltics, the British Isles, the French and Spanish Riviera, the Iberian Peninsula, Iceland, the Mediterranean and Northern Europe, including Norway and the North Cape.


For a springtime sailing, Canada and New England’s Charming Coastal Towns will be just what the family ordered. Available April through October, Holland America Line ships cruise along Canada and New England’s stunning coastlines with endless adventure opportunities. Head out on hikes in Acadia National Park, learn about Halifax’s maritime history and all the charming corners of Quebec City.


While the kids may be free, the itineraries (and lack thereof) are actually great for all ages. Bring your multigenerational crew and choose from a swath of activities spanning all ages and interests.


All ages can explore onboard, as well as the natural wonders on foot at their destination. The kids can entertain themselves back on the ship with fun, age-appropriate events and activities, like a treasure hunt of photo lessons. With kid’s clubs, teen activities and enough interactive fun on sea and on land, your tweens, teens, adults and parents can stay active or relax all day before meeting back up later for dinner. Adults, take advantage of all the opportunities to learn about the history, culture and architecture of your journey, with fun nightlife and dinner and a show options waiting for you at the end of the day.


No matter the destination or cruising style, who can pass up the opportunity to bring the kids along for free?
