Holland America Line Restarts Cruising in Europe from Piraeus

The first cruise aboard Eurodam departed yesterday for the Greek Isles and Montenegro. The ship set sail from from Piraeus, and many guests enjoyed Athens prior to boarding, including our Brand Ambassador Seth Wayne who did the Dinner in the Sky experience. Captain Smit and the ship’s team were eager to welcome guests back on board after the long pause in operations. It was a festive atmosphere for everyone, with guest Anne Marie cutting the ribbon to open embarkation.

    We are scheduled on Eurodam, leaving Venice on 09/12/2021. Upon looking to set up an excursion in Istanbul, we saw that the Turkish portion of the cruise had been replaced by stops at several Greek islands, & more days in Croatia; yet this is not reflected in the published itinerary. Which is true?

    Can you add my email to the list to which you are communicating concerning the situation in Venice? We are using HAL for our flight home. Thanks

    My cruise starts in ten days and is scheduled to end in Venice on September 15. However, as of August 1, cruise ships are no longer allowed in the port of Venice. How do you plan to get passengers to Venice?
