Exciting New 2016 Mediterranean Cruises Announced for Eurodam and Oosterdam

One of the many wonderful things about cruising is that changes to itineraries can be made fairly easily when needed or desired. Whether it’s a last-minute switch due to the weather or a now-open berth at a highly desirable locale on a cruise a year away, the mobility of cruise ships allows the addition of exciting ports of call that enhance the itineraries. In 2016, Holland America Line just revised several Mediterranean cruises on ms Eurodam and ms Oosterdam in April and October – and the new itineraries are available to book today!

Eurodam Adds New Seven-Day Cruises and Collectors’ Voyages

Eurodam will now sail a set of two back-to-back seven-day voyages in April and October, visiting marquis ports along the coasts of Spain, France and Italy. Additionally, these two voyages can be combined to form new 14- and 19-day Collectors’ Voyages.

The seven-day Gems of Spain cruise sails roundtrip Barcelona, Spain, and calls at Gibraltar, U.K., and the Spanish ports of Cadiz, Malaga, Cartagena and Valencia. An April 17 departure was added, while the Oct. 21 remains unchanged.

Two new seven-day Mediterranean Glamour voyages also sail roundtrip from Barcelona and call at Cagliari, Sardinia; Palermo, Sicily; Civitavecchia (Rome) and Livorno, Italy; and Monte Carlo, Monaco. This itinerary sets sail April 10 and Oct. 28.

Guests wanting an even longer cruise can embark the new April 17 Gems of Spain cruise and combine it with the existing 12-day Mediterranean Tapestry voyage that sails from Barcelona to Venice, Italy, with calls in Croatia, Italy, Monaco and France. The new Collectors’ Voyage is an unforgettable 19-day adventure!

Oosterdam Features New 12-Day Itineraries

New for 2016, Oosterdam will be sailing four 12-day Mediterranean Explorer voyages throughout the eastern and western Mediterranean. The cruise will depart from Civitavecchia, and call at Monte Carlo; Livorno; Ajaccio, Corsica; Almeria and Ceuta, Spain; and St. Tropez, Marseille and Sete, France. Guests will enjoy an overnight at Barcelona at the end of the voyage. The new departures are May 12, June 29, August 16 and Oct. 10.
