We just returned from greeting and celebrating with several hundred excited Cruise Specialists guests in Ft. Lauderdale before they embarked on their 2013 Holland America grand world voyage, and the 2013 Grand South America & Antarctica voyage.
Our highly anticipated annual gala send-off party and hotel stay in Ft. Lauderdale was a great time for all as veteran world cruise guests reunited with friends, and new clients were welcomed into the Cruise Specialists family. You could feel the excitement in the air as our guests talked about the adventures ahead!
Our Cruise Specialists team was on hand to greet our guests as they arrived at the pre-cruise hotel, introduce our Voyage Ambassadors, and deliver special treats – our stylish logo jackets and bags!
Before you knew it, the party was over, but then the real excitement began on January 5, 2013 as the ms Amsterdam sailed away for its 115-day circumnavigation around the globe, and the ms Prinsendam sailed away for its 68-day voyage. Before the ms Amsterdam returns to Ft. Lauderdale on May 1, 2013, the cruisers will have visited more than 40 ports of call in South America, the South Pacific, New Zealand, Australia and Africa. The ms Prisendam guests will be treated to an in-depth exploration of the vibrant cities of South America, and the beauty and diversity of Antarctica.
We’ll provide updates of some of the fascinating places and experiences our cruise guests will encounter during their epic around-the-world cruises. In the meantime, you can find information on our 2014 Holland America world cruise and 2014 Holland America Grand South America & Antarctica voyage here.
