Holland America ms Westerdam - Destinations

Holland America Westerdam cruises are offered on a number of incredible itineraries to some of the most magnificent destinations in the world.

Western Caribbean
Departing from Ft. Lauderdale, Holland America ms Westerdam's Western Caribbean tour sails to the haven for easy living, Key West, then heads off the to exotic Cozumel. The beach life here rivals that of any in the Caribbean - iridescent white beaches, emerald waters, rocky cliffs splashed with lush green flora. Grand Cayman's turquoise waters are some of the most beautiful anywhere - perfect for snorkeling, diving, swimming, watching the colorful undersea life, or just kicking back on the beach with a drink and watching the tide roll in.

Take a tour on a catamaran, and snorkel with tame stingrays that will eat out of your hand. Take a horseback ride, or frolic with the dolphins of Montego Bay, Jamaica. Lastly, ms Westerdam stops in at the private island paradise of Half Moon Cay, Bahamas. Play and lounge all day in a secluded setting that resembles the Caribbean islands before they were discovered.

Eastern Caribbean
The tour of the Eastern Caribbean also departs from Ft. Lauderdale, but then sails off to the Bahamas. Nassau is ringed in glowing-white beaches, palm trees swaying in the breeze, and crystal clear blue waters. Nassau is one of the most ideal islands of the Western Tropics, with some of the best snorkeling, swimming, and sunning you will find anywhere. The varieties of multi-colored marine life around the beaches and in the coral reefs are always an unforgettable experience.

St. Maarten, an Island long ago divided by the Spanish, French, and Dutch, will amaze you with its blend of old-world architecture and, one of its main attractions, a one-of-a-kind Butterfly Farm with hundreds of colored varieties of butterflies. Swim with the Dolphins and kayak around in the stunning waters of Tortola, British Virgin Islands.

Alaska Cruises
Alaska can't be tamed any more than your own sense of adventure can. Mountain peaks that pierce the clouds; grizzly bears fishing for salmon in icy streams; a seemingly unending landscape---all this and more are Alaska's gifts. Choose from two itineraries: the Glacier Bay and the Hubbard Glacier cruises. Both are roundtrip from Seattle, Washington. On the Glacier Bay cruise, you'll be able to step back in time to the ice age, as you see 16 dazzling tidewater glaciers chisel great masses of moraine onto their pristine surfaces with every millimeter's movement. When you take the Hubbard Glacier itinerary, you'll see a Glacier that has been slowly encroaching on the entrance to Russell Fjord to create an entirely new lake. On both cruises, you'll stop at ports of call such as Juneau, Sitka, and Victoria, British Columbia.
