First cruise ship set to return to Canada as country reopens cruising after two-year absence

Holland America Line's Koningsdam will be the first cruise ship to come to Canada in more than two years following the industry-wide pause that came as a result of the global pandemic.






Holland America Line's Koningsdam will be the first cruise ship to come to Canada in more than two years following the industry-wide pause that came as a result of the global pandemic.

The ship will call at Victoria, British Columbia on April 9, marking the official restart of the global cruise industry in Canada. Koningsdam's arrival at Victoria will mark 905 days since the last time a cruise ship visited the port.

"We are thrilled to be the first cruise line back into Canada after such a long absence,” said Gus Antorcha, president of Holland America Line.

“We look forward to celebrating a great moment for everyone who loves to travel and for those in Canada and Alaska whose livelihoods depend on tourism. Holland America Line has a robust schedule of cruises that explore Canadian ports on both coasts with Alaska, Hawaii, transatlantic and Canada and New England itineraries.”

2022 will see six Holland America Line ships calling at both Victoria and Vancouver for the Alaska cruise season. The vessels will make 45 calls at Victoria and bring nearly 75,000 guests to the port. In total, 76 cruises will begin or end at Vancouver, with the port welcoming around 140,000 guests.
