In 2020, Holland America will debut a new Grand Africa Voyage (world cruise) which circles the continent and offers more than a dozen wildlife encounters and safari experiences. The premium line is also offering 2020 and 2021 Grand South America and Antarctica cruises in which an in-depth Antarctica cruising and Amazon River exploration anchor the itineraries.
MS Volendam sets sail on January 5, 2020, on a 77-day Grand South America & Antarctica Voyage. The 2021 cruise departs on January 4 for 74 days.
Holland America is returning to Port Tampa Bay next year with a full season of 18 Caribbean sailings aboard ms Veendam. Via the addition of western Caribbean and Gulf ports in Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico to the line’s Caribbean offerings, roundtrip sailings from Tampa FL sail from November 2020 through March 2021 and feature 5- to 14-day itineraries.
Offering a mid-sized, premium cruise ship experience with just 1,350 passengers on board, ms Veendam marks the return of the company after a 2-season departure. In the western Caribbean, the cruise ship will sail four different 7-day itineraries, and in the southern Caribbean, passengers can choose from among 3 different 14-day journeys. A 5- and a 12-day trip round out the offerings.
