Our hearts go out to all those across the Caribbean that have been affected this hurricane season. We are monitoring the situation at all of our ports of call and are aligned with Holland America as recovery efforts continue over the coming weeks. As Producers of the event, it’s our hope and intention to continue with our cruise as planned as a way of supporting tourism and the local economies. We encourage you to visit this link to stay aware of any Holland America updates and we look forward to our journey together this November!

Fort Lauderdale, Florida
There is an abundance of things to do in the Ft. Lauderdale area: visit the newly redesigned Ft. Lauderdale Beach and cafes, see the historic Riverwalk, shop the luxurious stores on Las Olas Blvd., or adventure to the Everglades for an exhilarating air boat excursion.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Historic Old San Juan is Puerto Rico’s bastion of Spanish colonial tradition, with well-preserved buildings lining cobblestone streets, wrought-iron balconies ablaze with purple bougainvillea, and the massive El Morro Fortress which guards the harbor and oversees the majestic landscape. Nearby, new San Juan flaunts a sleek skyline of luxury five star resort hotels. As the sun sets, roulette wheels spin as glittering casinos and nightclubs beckon. Nature lovers will enjoy El Yunque rainforest with its mountain lakes and waterfalls.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas
This Bahamian island captures all the magic of a secluded retreat. Privately owned by Holland America, Half Moon Cay remains largely in its pristine, natural state, with a wonderful Wild Bird Preserve designated by the Bahamian National Trust. Its beach is a two-mile-long, crescent-shaped bay with silky, white sand beaches – the perfect tropical island paradise you dream of. Enjoy swimming and snorkeling, glass-bottom boat rides, and a variety of activities from the Water Sports Center (including kayaks, paddle boats, sailboats, parasailing, deep-sea fishing, and scuba diving).
