Looking for the Ultimate Cruise? Check out the 111-Day 2017 Grand World Voyage

Imagine circling the globe, literally, in pampered comfort for more than three months. In 2017, Amsterdam sets off on its exciting Grand World Voyage that takes guests on the most memorable adventure possible.

During the 111-day journey, 36 ports of call in 23 countries on five continents await, introducing a rainbow of cultures and customs to our guests. An astounding 10 magical overnight stays allow more time in port so nightlife has a chance to show itself and overland tours abound. For guests who have less time on their hands, 10 segments ranging in length from 17 to 56 days are available from departure ports along the route.

The 2017 Grand World Voyage route starts and ends in Fort Lauderdale.

After an overnight call in Hawaii, the ship makes calls at at the unique islands of Guam and Saipon, Northern Marina Islands.

Holland America Line offers a change in route each year, and in 2017 Amsterdam sets a course for an extensive Far East exploration on the Grand World Voyage. The ship first makes calls throughout Japan, including an overnight at Osaka where the world’s largest Buddha resides. Two calls in South Korea pave the way for three overnights in China at Xingang (Beijing), Shanghai and Hong Kong.
