Holland America Adding More Panama Canal Cruises
Looking to cruise to the Panama Canal?
Holland America Line is adding more cruises to the Panama Canal, the cruise line announced this week.
Holland America will be sending eight ships and 19 cruises to the Canal between fall 2017 and spring 2018.
In addition to full transits, the line’s ms Zuiderdam will offer two Southern Caribbean and Panama Canal Sunfarer cruises that include a partial transit through the canal.
The transits range from 14 to 23 days.
“The Panama Canal is among the greatest engineering feats of our time, and its easy access from a U.S. home port makes it one of the most popular longer itineraries we feature,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “There’s no better way to become more immersed in the world than by experiencing something like the Panama Canal, where history comes to life as you witness up close what it took to connect these two oceans. Everyone should transit the Panama Canal at least once in their lifetime.”
From September 2017 through May 2018, ms Amsterdam, ms Eurodam, ms Maasdam, ms Nieuw Amsterdam, ms Oosterdam, ms Westerdam and ms Zaandam will make 19 transits between the Atlantic Ocean and Pacific Ocean from five departure cities. Guests can set sail from Boston, Mass.; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; San Diego and San Francisco, California; and Vancouver.
