Holland America Line to Restart Cruising from Greece in August 2021

Start cruising from Greece with seven-day itineraries roundtrip from Piraeus (Athens) aboard Eurodam in August 2021.   

Last updated: May 13, 2021

Working in close coordination with the government of Greece, Holland America Line has received approval to restart cruising from Piraeus (Athens) in August with four departures aboard Eurodam.  Bookings for these cruises are now open.

In addition, European cruises departing from July 1 through July 25 on Volendam and July 1 through Aug. 31 on Westerdam will be canceled. Guests who were booked on impacted cruises and their travel advisors are being notified. View Volendam and Westerdam replacement voyages PDF.

While Holland America Line continues to gather more information to develop its plan to return to cruising, the company is canceling European cruises aboard Nieuw Statendam and Volendam through August, affecting eight departures. View Nieuw Statendam, Volendam, and Eurodam replacement voyages PDF.
