Holland America is planning 160 cruises to the wider Caribbean region for the upcoming winter cruise season, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The Seattle-based cruise line will sail a range of itineraries from seven to 21 days, using seven of its ships, including two of its newest cruise ships: Nieuw Statendam and Koningsdam.
All of those ships will sail roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale.
“Summer will be over before we know it and there’s nothing like having a Caribbean cruise to look forward to for a winter escape, especially when a day on a private-island paradise is included,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “The Caribbean offers that perfect combination of laid-back relaxation, fun and colorful culture.”
Most of the company’s 2019-2020 itineraries will stop at Half Moon Cay, Holland America’s private destination in The Bahamas.
And the cruises will include chances to see ports further south, including Bridgetown, Barbados; Castries, Saint Lucia, Basseterre, St Kitts, Fort-de-France, Martinique and Bonaire, among others.
