On a cruise over the holidays, reconnect with loved ones and rejuvenate yourself. Spend time lazing by the pool while we prepare a holiday feast. Explore sun-drenched ports while we make the ship clean and tidy for the celebrations. Admire the gingerbread villages, mistletoe and ornament-adorned trees around the ship, all while enjoying daytime enrichment and nightly entertainment.
Worried your culinary traditions will be left ashore? Rest easy knowing that our chefs will prepare your perfect holiday meal with favorites such as turkey, stuffing and all of the trimmings, as well as some delicious international holiday dishes.
Looking to make memories you’ll never forget? The holidays are a festive time on board with special events and activities. Guests can delight in singing carols by the piano, taking part in a yule log parade, watching holiday movies and enjoying an international choir, all while waiting for Santa.
Make the most of the holidays at our Christmas Eve party and New Year’s Eve Ball with a countdown to midnight. Whether you like to dress to the nines while dancing in B.B. King’s Blues Club or ring in the new year with a dinner for two on your verandah, a holiday cruise is tailored to your style.
Have a White Christmas or a Tropical New Year
If you’re looking to get away for the 2022 holidays, Holland America Line’s 11 ships are cruising around the globe. If you want a white Christmas, Oosterdam is sailing to South America and Antarctica where you can cruise among the penguins and glaciers. If an adventure Down Under is what you seek, Noordam and Westerdam set sail for Australia and New Zealand. The remaining eight ships will soak up the sun and have a tropical holiday in the Caribbean and Mexico. Ranging from seven to 22 days, there’s a holiday cruise for everyone.
