It’s the last day of the year and the last day of the decade! Over the past 10 years, we’ve welcomed Nieuw Statendam, Koningsdam and Nieuw Amsterdam, and we’ve seen the launch of our esteemed Culinary Council, Music Walk and Explorations Central … to name a few of our innovations! But most important, we’ve continued to connect our guests with people from around the world. We’ve immersed our guests in different cultures. We’ve introduced our guests to new flavors, sites and sounds. This is why we travel.
One of the top New Year’s Resolutions people make each year is to travel more, and to welcome the new decade we asked our Facebook fans for their Top Travel Resolutions for 2020. From taking another Holland America Line cruise to more destination-specific aspirations, the goals and dreams for the New Year are something we hope to fulfill for our fans.
TAKE A CRUISE
No surprise, the biggest Travel Resolution among our fans in 2020 is to take a cruise!

TAKING LONGER CRUISES:
