Holland America Line’s cruises between October 2021 and April 2022 feature three to 14day itineraries to the Eastern, Western and Southern Caribbean. A few select sailings will spend a day discovering the Panama Canal.
In addition to Rotterdam, guests can choose a Caribbean cruise on Eurodam, Nieuw Amsterdam, Nieuw Statendam, Volendam and one holiday sailing on Zaandam.
All of the itineraries include a call at Half Moon Cay, affording guests more opportunities to experience Holland America Line’s award-winning private Bahamian island. Both Porthole Cruise Magazine and Travel Weekly readers have named Half Moon Cay the industry’s Best Private Island, and it is Holland America Line’s highest-rated Caribbean port call by its guests.
Book by February 28, 2021, and take advantage of the ‘View & Verandah’ offer that includes stateroom upgrades, free beverages, one-night specialty dining, 10% off shore excursions and more.
Savings with the “View and Verandah” Big Event is valued at up to $3,800 per stateroom, depending on length of cruise and category booked. Caribbean cruise pricing starts at $699 per person, double occupancy, for a seven-day sailing.
Holland America Line’s newest cruise ship kicks off the Caribbean season with three and four day sample cruises. The four-day departs November 3 and calls at Half Moon Cay and Key West Florida, and the three-day departs November 7 and calls at Half Moon Cay.
With the most varied options of the season, Rotterdam will then sail a series of cruises that include tropical, western, eastern and southern itineraries ranging from six to 11 days.
Many of the cruises can be extended into Collectors’ Voyages to create the ultimate Caribbean exploration with more economical fares than if booking the cruises individually. Ranging from 13 to 21 days, these longer journeys combine nonrepeating, back-to-back itineraries, allowing guests to span more than one Caribbean region and enjoy the ultimate island-hopping journey.
Throughout each cruise, EXC programming brings the Caribbean’s local traditions, culinary tastes and cultural experiences to life. Guests who want to learn more about the region can attend an EXC Talk on topics ranging from “The Caribbean Spirit: The Story of Rum” to “The Deep Blue: Life Below the Water’s Edge.”
Foodies can head to a Port to Table cooking demonstration, cooking class or themed mixology class featuring local fare, or participate in an exclusive culinary-themed shore excursion in partnership with FOOD & WINE magazine showcasing the region’s food scene from a local perspective.
