Yokohama, Japan

Yokohama, Japan

Cruise to Yokohama


Tokyo will overwhelm a cruise visitor unless … never mind. It's going to overwhelm you no matter what, so you best just go with the flow. Tokyo is a sensation: Walk out of Shinjuku Station some evening and into a neon canyon peopled with shoppers, professionals, and gawkers. Tokyo is a cadence: The Yamanote Rail Line threads through the city and trains arrive every few minutes. Systole, diastole, systole, diastole. Tokyo is a rhythm: Shop the ritzy Ginza. See the temples at Asakusa; the gardens of the Imperial Palace; or the Meiji Shrine. Duck into a funky boutique along Takeshita-dori or applaud the angel-headed hipsters at Yoyogi Park. Tokyo is a state of mind.

Shore Excursion Highlights




Xingang (Beijing), China

Xingang (Beijing), China

Cruise to Xingang (Beijing)


Beijing is ancient, older almost than imagining. The first human habitations date back some 700 millennia, to the very dawn of the human species. 24 emperors called it home. Today, it is the center of culture, education and politics in China. It is a leading city of the world. And it is a hive of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. There are places in and around the city so potent they've become touch points of our global psyche: Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, and since the 2008 Olympic Games, the National Stadium (aka the "Bird's Nest"). Everywhere cruise visitors go they touch history.


Hong Kong, China

Cruise to Hong Kong


You feel the buzz of South Asia's legendary financial generator the moment you arrive. Immersing yourself in Hong Kong life takes only seconds as the pulse of the island city-state beats so quickly and never sleeps. The deep-water harbor, the high rise corporate headquarters glowing at night in neon and LED light displays, zillions of restaurants, old world markets, unbelievable shopping — have you rested yet? Only a few of Aberdeen's old world junks and sampans remain, but you can still rise above it all on the tram ride to the top of Victoria Peak. Where else can ancient herbal remedies mix with designer fashions, Buddhist monks, and modern international businessmen?

Extend your Hong Kong vacation before or after your cruise and explore this city more comprehensively. To learn more about hotel packages for pre- or post cruise, please contact your travel professional or Holland America Line.

Shanghai, China

Shanghai, China

Cruise to Shanghai


It's the capital of the world. It's the biggest city. It's the busiest port. It's a center of technology and transport, commerce and capital, fashion and finance. Shanghai sits astride the Huangpu River, daring you to try and take it all in. The Yuyuan Gardens are an island of serenity in the Old City. The old buildings and boutiques of the Bund evoke the Shanghai of the 1920s. And the Jin Mao Tower and the Shanghai World Financial Center are the architectural giants of the Pudong District. Best for cruise visitors to pick a destination, any destination and go. Or, just visit a tea house and let the day carry you where it will.


Singapore

Cruise to Singapore


It's an island city-state, a World War II battleground, a global economic superstar, and a crossroads of the world. Cruise to Singapore with Holland America Line and in the space of a few hours you can relax in a Chinese teahouse, purchase a colorful sari in Little India and visit the gold-domed Sultan Mosque.

Sydney, Australia

Sydney, Australia

Cruise to Sydney


Even for many Australians, Sydney poses a curious challenge to define accurately. The entire world arrives daily to tour the harbor and its stellar modern architectural icons like the famed Sydney Opera House. Yet, easily as noticeable, 50,000 years of Aboriginal history which unfolds in real time, helping forge the multicultural future of the world's largest island nation that has a knack for eye-catching imagery and particularly monolithic rock formations. The strands of culture, nature, democracy, and art create the mosaic for Sydney's brilliant yet rugged transcendence. Of course, it makes for exceptional cuisine and an influx of world class chefs making their mark on our appetites.

Lahaina, Hawaii, US

Lahaina, Hawaii, US

Cruise to Maui (Lahaina)


Lahaina was a battleground for warring chieftains and later the capital of a unified Hawaii under Kamehameha III. Long before that, though, there were the humpback whales. For millennia they'd migrate here in winter to calve and feed in the warm, protected waters. In the early 19th century, the whalers followed, and at times you'd see 300, 400, 500 whaling ships in Lahaina Harbor. The whalers would surge ashore and find Christian missionaries seeking to impose order on the chaos they made. Today, the town welcomes cruise visitors to its compact, pedestrian-friendly streets. There is a bounty of places to eat and shop (especially along Front Street) or just relax in the shade and catch the view.


Kushiro, Japan

Kushiro, Japan

Cruise to Kushiro, Japan


Kushiro, known as "the town of mist," in southeastern Hokkaido, faces the Pacific Ocean. With a strong marine industry, Kushiro has flourished since the early 20th century, and the long, narrow city, centering on Kushiro Port, retains many features of the early 20th century port town. Take this truly unique opportunity visit Kushiro Marsh, now called Kushiro Tancho Nature Park, to see one of its rare Tancho (Japanese) cranes. The Nature Park is renowned as the site of the first successful artificial breeding of Tancho cranes, which are designated as natural treasures.
