Eurodam Extends Mediterranean Season and Adds Five 12-Day Cruises

For travelers looking to get back to cruising on longer voyages in the Mediterranean this summer, Eurodam is extending its season and offering five 12-day itineraries roundtrip from Venice, Italy; between Venice and Piraeus (Athens), Greece; Venice and Barcelona, Spain; or from Barcelona to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Following a series of four cruises to Greece in summer 2021, Eurodam will assume the previously scheduled cruises of Westerdam from Sept. 12 through its Oct. 30 transatlantic departure. Bookings open Thursday, May 27 for these cruises.


Mediterranean Cruise Itineraries (all cruises are 12 days):

Sept. 12: Venice; Zadar and Hvar, Croatia; Kotor, Montenegro; Argostólion, Crete, Rhodes (overnight), Mykonos and Piraeus (overnight), Greece.

Sept. 24: Piraeus; Istanbul (overnight) and Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey; Sarandë, Albania; Dubrovnik, Korcula and Rijeka, Croatia; Koper, Slovenia; Venice (overnight).

Oct. 6: Venice; Katakolon (Olympia), Piraeus, Rhodes (overnight), Santorini and Crete, Greece; Kotor; Korcula; Venice (overnight).

Oct. 18: Venice (overnight); Dubrovnik; Kotor; Corfu and Katakolon, Greece; Naples, Civitavecchia (Rome), and Livorno (Pisa/Florence), Italy; Cannes and Marseille (Provence), France; Barcelona.

Oct. 30: Barcelona, Cartagena, Malaga (Granada) and Cadiz (Seville), Spain; Lisbon, Portugal; Funchal, Madeira; Ponta Delgada, Azores; Fort Lauderdale.

The 12-day cruises can be combined to form an epic 24-day Collectors’ Voyage that offers an in-depth exploration of the region. The Mediterranean itineraries were designed to offer nonrepeating ports on back-to-back itineraries to enable guests to visit more ports and more countries on one extended voyage. Booking a Collectors’ Voyage represents a significant savings off booking the two itineraries separately.

Holland America Line previously announced Eurodam would restart cruising in the Mediterranean Aug. 15, 2021, and offer three seven-day departures roundtrip from Piraeus and one seven-day cruise from Piraeus to Venice.

Guests who were booked on Westerdam cruises automatically will be rebooked on the same departure date aboard Eurodam in a comparable stateroom. As a Signature Class vessel, Eurodam has a slightly larger capacity and will be able to accommodate all Westerdam guests (Eurodam 2,104; Westerdam 1,964).


Immediately following the transatlantic crossing, Eurodam is expected to begin its scheduled Caribbean season of cruises roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale. From November 2021 through March 2022, guests can embark on seven-, 10- and 11-day itineraries that explore the eastern, southern and tropical Caribbean, as well as partial Panama Canal cruises that spend a day on Gatun Lake.

    So shocked and disappointed that the itinerary we were expecting to take in Sep from Athens to Venice has been changed to not include several ports-of-all which were the reason we picked this cruise. Add insult to injury, it appears we don’t have much recourse. Any suggestions, Julie?

    As we are from Canada we are required to have a positive COVID test upon returning to Canada. Will Holland America provide us with this test? We will have our two does of vaccine before our cruise departs from Venice on Sept. 12.

    Please advise. I would like a reply so that I know you received this message.

    We are waiting for any updated information regarding the Volendam cruise :Venice- Sept 23 to Rome -Oct 5. There has been no updated information since it was announced that the Volendam cruises were cancelled until late July 2021. If it is to be cancelled, we’d prefer the option to reschedule on another Mediterranean cruise that is more likely to happen this fall. Any insight?

    Are these ships not supposed to operate on reduced capacity, not from your figures quoted.
