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 look forward to our journey together this November! For immediate questions, please contact Life Journeys at 888-259-9191 ext. 204.

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.
Cap Cana, Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic is the second largest and most diverse Caribbean country, known for its warm and hospitable people. Discovered in 1492 by Christopher Columbus, the country overflows with uniquely Dominican specialties such as cigars, rum, chocolate, coffee, merengue, amber and larimar – a beautiful gemstone found only in the Dominican Republic, not to mention over 250 miles of the world’s top beaches!
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).
