Book Flexible Itineraries Spanning 5 – 21 Days

With Holland America Line, you’re not limited to weekend-only departures. Our Caribbean cruises embark on adventures at different times throughout the week, leaving on Saturdays, Sundays and even days midweek. Plus, you can opt for a cruise that ranges from 5 to 21 days. Talk about a getaway!

No matter the route you take, the Caribbean will have you snorkeling blue waters, soaking up the sun with an ocean breeze or napping under a swaying palm.

Bask in the Beauty of Half Moon Cay

Though you’ll find beauty on the beaches of the Caribbean, there’s nothing like a day at Half Moon Cay. From the moment you step foot on our award-winning private island in the Bahamas, you’ll feel like you just landed in paradise. And we’re not the only ones who think so. Half Moon Cay is the highest-rated private island in the Bahamas, and it has won Porthole Cruise Magazine’s Best Private Island award for 20 consecutive years.

Indulge in Fresh, Island-Inspired Cuisine

With local ingredients, fresh flavors and time-honored culinary techniques, we ensure you have an unparalleled dining experience as you sail from one island to the next on a Caribbean cruise. Led by a team of world-class celebrity chefs, our dining will delight your senses with menus unique to the journey. Plus, you can choose from a selection of cocktails and beverages that will complement the flavors and quench your thirst.

Explore Our Perfectly Sized Ships

Relax and explore ships that are large enough to offer a wealth of entertainment and dining options, but small enough to reach ports that megaships can’t. Our elegant fleet of ships provide spacious staterooms, expansive views, fine dining, excellent entertainment, and enriching and relaxing activities to ensure your vacation from the everyday is nothing short of extraordinary.
