Cruise ship to call on Anchorage

The Amsterdam will call at the Port of Anchorage every other week in 2010, becoming the first ship to visit Anchorage on a regular basis.

Holland America Line will make a regular cruise ship stop in Anchorage in 2010.

The Amsterdam, which carries 1,380 passengers and a crew of 615, will be the first ship of a major line to call regularly in Anchorage. The port call will be part of a 14-day cruise.

Some Alaska tourism officials prefer seven-day cruise ship tours because it means twice as many passengers are carried on a vessel over a two-week period.

Many passengers on seven-day cruises continue tours away from the coast to destinations such as Denali National Park and Fairbanks. The 14-day itinerary will not allow time for excursions into Southcentral and Interior Alaska.
