Western Caribbean Cruise

Escape to Paradise: Holland America

January 27- February 4, 2018

Sat / Sun - 9 Days

This is the Caribbean of reggae rhythms, world-class diving and ancient Mayan ruins. Brilliant coral reefs that teem with schools of tropical fish and perfect white sand beaches greet you at almost every stop. During this seven-night cruise visit popular Western Caribbean favorites such as Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico and play on Holland America’s private paradise island, Half Moon Cay. A stop in Key West provides the opportunity to tour the Ernest Hemingway House (full of many-toed cats), Harry Truman’s Little White House and numerous bars and beaches.

Life on board the luxurious ms Eurodam is like being in a sophisticated city with all the pleasures and perks. The ship recently received new entertainment venues including Lincoln Center Stage, offering chamber music nightly and Billboard Onboard with live musicians rocking the crowd with chart-topping hits, and the popular B.B. King’s Blues Club. Guests will delight in a variety of dining options, activities, wonderful nightly entertainment, the Greenhouse Spa & Salon, digital workshops, demonstrations, plus an immersive farm-to-table concept dinner experience in the Culinary Arts Center. Bars, lounges and cafes provide places to get to know fellow travelers. And, Holland America Line offers a wide variety of optional shore excursions for adventures and sightseeing.
