From fall 2015 through spring 2016, Holland America Line heads to the tropics of Hawaii and explores the spirit of Mexico with itineraries ranging in length from seven to 18 days.
Two ships will travel throughout the regions, with ms Veendam offering cruises to both Hawaii and Mexico, and ms Zaandam weaving among the stunning Hawaiian Islands.
“Holland America Line’s Mexico and Hawaii cruises are a fantastic compilation of the must-see ports and highlights in each region,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “The destination experience for guests is enriched with unique onboard activities that bring the local culture and cuisine on board while sailing through these two beautiful parts of the world.”
