Holland America’s ms Eurodam extending 2021 Mediterranean cruise season

   May 30, 2021 ,   Cruise Industry

Following a series of 4 cruises to Greece this summer, HAL-Holland America’s liner ms Eurodam is expected to assume the previously scheduled for ms Westerdam voyages that span the Mediterranean.

From September 12 through October 30 (the Transatlantic crossing), Eurodam will offer five 12-day itineraries roundtrip from Venice Italy; between Venice and Piraeus-Athens Greece, between Venice and Barcelona Spain plus the Transatlantic repositioning from Europe to the USA - Barcelona to Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades, Florida). Bookings are now open for these sailings.

Passengers who were booked on Westerdam cruises will be automatically rebooked on the same departure date aboard Eurodam in a comparable accommodation. 

Holland America had previously announced that Eurodam would restart in the Mediterranean on August 15, 2021, and offer three 7-day roundtrips from Piraeus-Athens and one 7-day from Piraeus to Venice.

The 12-day trips can be combined into B2Bs (back-to-back) 24-day Collectors’ Voyages.

After the transatlantic crossing, Eurodam starts the scheduled Caribbean roundtrips from Fort Lauderdale. For November 2021 through March 2022, are scheduled 7-10-11-day itineraries to ports in the eastern, southern and western Caribbean, including partial Panama Canal cruises with a day of scenic cruising in Gatun Lake.

HAL's 2021 Mediterranean sailings are available for passengers who have received the final dose of an approved COVID vaccine at least 14 days before the beginning of the cruise and provide proof of vaccination.

Prices for Eurodam’s 12-day Mediterranean voyages start at a “Have It All” premium package rate of US$2,299 per person including 4 high-value amenities: a Signature Beverage Package, 1-night specialty dining in both Pinnacle Grill & Tamarind, 2 shore excursions, and a Wi-Fi Surf Package. Cruise-only fares start at US$1,699 per person, double occupancy. Fees, taxes, and port expenses are additional.

Holland America previously canceled 8 European cruises in July-August aboard ms Nieuw Statendam and ms Volendam, as well as two Caribbean voyages in October-November on Eurodam. The Caribbean cancellations were made in order to accommodate Eurodam's Mediterranean sailings.
