Ports

Fort Lauderdale

Originally a fort built by the U.S. Army in 1838, during the Second Seminole War, Ft. Lauderdale has little left of its warlike past. Instead the city welcomes visitors with broad beaches and an easy pace of life, plus convenient air and water connections that make the city a perfect place to begin or end a cruise.

Guna Yala

The San Blas Islands, now known as Guna Yala, offer excellent white sand beaches and clear waters on every island. They are located just a few miles off the Caribbean coast of Panama. These islands are home to the rich history of the Kuna Indians that inhabit them still living as they did hundreds of years ago.

Panama Canal

The Panama Canal is approximately 50 miles long and joins the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The waterway was cut through one of the narrowest portions of land joining North and South America and took over 400 years to complete. The canal was started by the French and finished by the United States. During the course of this construction over 30,000 people lost their lives. The first ship to transit the Panama Canal was in 1914 and today about fourteen thousand vessels do so each year.


Country - Panama

Fuerte Amador

Salaverry

This is our gateway to the treasures of northern Peru. Named after the Spanish city where conquistador Francisco Pizarro was born, Trujillo's stately mansions and decorated balconies date back as far as 1534. This is the Moche Valley, home to the extraordinary adobe citadels built a thousand years earlier by the Chimus and Mochicas. Most remarkable of all is Chan-Chan. Capital of the Kingdom of the Great Chimu and the largest city in South America to be built of mud, it once covered an area of over 12 square miles.

Callao

Located on the fringe of Peru's fascinating capital, Lima. The city features many fine landmarks, not least of which is the Plaza de Armas, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You'll appreciate its mix of colonial mansions, Moorish balconies, palaces and churches. Don’t miss a visit to the Gold Museum, brimming with resplendent Inca exhibits.

In Arica, visit the Pacific Museum and San Marco Cathedral for sights well worth seeing.

Easter Island

Billed as the most remote inhabited island in the world, Easter Island is known locally as Rapa Nui. It adopted its more familiar name after one Johannes Roggeeveen discovered the island on Easter Sunday, 1722. Like him, you’ll come face to face with the ancient Moais. About 800 of these giant statues, representing high chiefs of competing tribes, are dotted around the island. Some weigh up to 80 tons and it remains a mystery to this day how they were quarried and moved before the wheel was even invented.

Pitcairn Island

Lying below the tropic of Capricorn, halfway between New Zealand and the Americas, the Pitcairn Island group is surely one of the most remotely inhabited in the world. A well deserved title, indeed, Pitcairn Island is the final resting place of the H.M.S. Bounty and its mutineers. Later, Pitcairn became the first Pacific island to become a British colony. Today it remains a breathtakingly beautiful retreat from the world.

Papeete

A look beyond its bustling waterfront will reveal the island paradise French artist Paul Gauguin came to explore and embrace. The island’s lush interior is a canvas of deep green valleys, 7,000 feet-high peaks and cascading waterfalls. On the south shore lies the Gauguin Museum at Mataiea while at Tautira on the north coast, other famous names like Captain Cook and Robert Louis Stevenson came to call. Back in Papeete, visit the restored ancient temple of Arahurahu Marae or shop for cultured black pearls.

No name captures the imagination of paradise as well as the French Polynesian island nation of Bora Bora. Majestic mountains sculpted by ancient volcanoes, a shimmering lagoon and a barrier reef dotted with tiny motu or islets welcome visitors to perhaps the most stunning island in the South Pacific, and generations of travelers — including novelist James Michener — regarded Bora Bora as an earthly paradise. Approximately, a mere 4,600 people live a seemingly idyllic lifestyle in the main villages of Vaitape, Anau and Faanui.

Auckland

Virtually surrounded by water, Auckland is known as ‘The City of Sails’ with good reason. Opt to see the city from above with a visit to its Sky Tower, complete with a revolving restaurant! Sail on Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour for a taste of its yachting culture. Or head for the natural beauty of Rotorua. A different world completely, here you will find boiling mud pools, spouting geysers and hot springs. A highlight of New Zealand not to be missed!

Tauranga

Rotorua (some miles inland from the port of Tauranga) is the center of New Zealand's thermal area on the North Island. Spectacular phenomena such as geysers, boiling mud, hot pools, hot springs, and spouts of gushing steam can be seen. Lake Rotorua's waters are icy, yet the sandy shores are too warm for bare feet to walk upon. Rotorua is also the center of Maori life and culture, with a model village, displays of carving, and concerts of Maori music and singing. Tauranga, meaning "shelter" (named by Capt. Cook the Bay of Plenty), with its population of 48,000, is now a modern thriving city supported by the export of lumber and farming. This popular holiday resort is a paradise for deep-sea fishermen, and close to the golden sands of Ohope Beach for surfing and swimming.

It offers a multitude of sights such as the famous Opera House and distinctive Harbour Bridge of course. You can travel back in time with a visit to Sydney’s oldest centre – The Rocks. Take a city tour to take in Sydney Tower, Darling Harbour and Chinatown. Bask on Bondi Beach for a dose of sun, sea and sand. Or travel a little further afield for a glimpse of the Aussie wildlife and views of the Blue Mountains.

Ship info

Amsterdam

 

Named for the Dutch capital, ms Amsterdam is the third ship to bear the name in Holland America Line's over 140-year history. Built at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy, Amsterdam blends the very latest in shipbuilding technology with the artistry, personalized touches and superior service that has made Holland America Line one of the highest-rated cruise lines in the world.

At the heart of Amsterdam is the Planeto Astrolabium, a commissioned signature sculpture soaring in a three-story atrium. The stunning Astrolabe tracks constellations, the planets, world time and ship time. Dutch heritage and tradition is clearly displayed throughout the ship in original Art Deco pieces that once graced the elegant Nieuw Amsterdam of 1938. For a contemporary touch, works of the noted maritime artist Stephen Card adorn public spaces.

Guests on Amsterdam will be able to "show and tell" their vacation memories through the Digital Workshop powered by Windows®. Free workshops led by Microsoft-trained "techsperts" will show even the most novice camera or computer user how to take better vacation photos, make movies, edit pictures and create scrapbooks using a variety of Microsoft Windows and Windows Live services. Guests will learn how to share all their digital memories through email, blogging and social networking — so friends and family can see where they've been cruising even before they return home.
