SO, WHAT ELSE IS NEW?
            Cuba! After 30+ years, Holland America Line is returning to
            this colorful island nation. Come this December, you’ll have
            a choice of seven-, 11- and 12-day roundtrip sailings from
            Ft. Lauderdale aboard the recently enhanced ms Veendam.
            Both of our featured itineraries offer an overnight in the
            capital city of Havana and a call at Cienfuegos (aka “Pearl of
            the South”), which boasts some of the region’s best-preserved
            colonial architecture.


            A NEW PINNACLE
            Everyone’s talking about Holland America Line’s newest
            Pinnacle-class ship, ms Nieuw Statendam, scheduled to make
            her debut in early December 2018. Like her sister,
            ms Koningsdam, the new vessel will offer Music Walk™, with
            its three stages for live music; the two-story World Stage
            theater, where guests can enjoy multimedia BBC Earth
            productions; and innovative dining options such as Sel de
            Mer, an intimate seafood brasserie offering a contemporary
            twist on timeless French classics. If you love the excitement
            and fanfare of sailing aboard a brand-new ship, consider
            the Transatlantic Premier Voyage departing from Rome on
            December 5, 2018.

            Also happening: Holland America Line has expanded its
            Signature Experience program (a pre-cruise evening event
            and two-night luxury hotel stay in the departure city) to
            include Buenos Aires and Montréal. Take advantage of this
            enriching new experience on the featured South America
            Passage and Newfoundland Explorer voyages.





                                            “Buenos Aires is a place you need


                                             several days to see. Attend a tango

                                             show, stroll the promenades of Puerto

                                             Madero, and attend a wine tasting

                                             featuring the sought-after Malbec.”

                                            – Wendy and Steve Bodenheimer,
