Dream Caribbean Cruises

Caribbean cruises transport passengers to sultry beaches and shimmering reefs. Beyond the incredible seascapes, there’s rich tradition, music and cuisine that varies greatly from island to island. Holland America Line goes further than the typical beach cruise to offer an enriching experience with options for 7-day Caribbean cruises, 3-day whirlwinds or longer voyages. Choose from the best Caribbean cruise destinations—glide the locks of the famed Panama Canal, snorkel with parrotfish and sea turtles in St. Lucia, and gallop horses through foam surf on Half Moon Cay, our exclusive private island. Let our new ship, Rotterdam be the soundtrack to your Caribbean discoveries and your sanctuary at sea. Get ready for breezy hammocks, umbrella drinks and unparalleled beauty; the Caribbean is calling.
