Holland America Line’s Updated 2025 Canada and New England Season

Holland America Line’s 2025 Canada and New England Season is set to impress with extended voyages, new ports of call, plenty of locally sourced fresh fish to dine upon, and a captivating 25-day “Legendary Voyage” sailing to Greenland and Iceland. 

Guests booking one of these 2025 cruises will have two convenient main departure points to choose from: Boston, Massachusetts, and Montreal/Quebec City, Quebec. 

A variety of journeys will be available aboard two different vessels sailing through these frigid Atlantic waters in 2025, including the 82,318-ton Zuiderdam — which will also embark on a 73-day grand voyage in October 2023 — with a capacity of 1,964 guests, along with the company’s smaller 61,396-ton Volendam, which can accommodate 1,432 passengers.

“With Zuiderdam beginning in May [2025], we will slightly increase our capacity in the region from previous years and add more verandah staterooms available for booking,” Holland America Line’s CCO Beth Bodensteiner remarked.

“…our itineraries present several choices for a truly unique vacation that explores a culturally rich region from an easy gateway for an extended season, including the popular fall foliage and longer voyages up to Greenland and Iceland,” Bodensteiner added.

Volendam will offer itineraries spanning 10 to 11 days, and will also set sail in September 2025 for three seven-day cruises to take in the region’s autumn foliage. Additionally, the vessel, while repositioning to and from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, will visit Yorktown (Williamsburg) for the first time as well.

Meanwhile, from May to October 2025, Zuiderdam will present guests with a selection of seven-day voyages, highlighting all that the Atlantic Coast — including its amazing scenery and great seafood — has to offer.

Zuiderdam will also run two seven-day routes, including “Canada & New England: UNESCO Sites & Québécois Nights” from Boston to Québec City, and “Canada & New England Circle: New Brunswick,” which will depart from and return to Boston.

Cruise-only prices for these 2025 Canada and New England trips fall in the $979 to $4,699 range per person, based on double occupancy, plus additional expenses.
