Holland America Line launched its 2025 Canada and New England season, with longer voyages, new maiden ports and a 25-day “Legendary Voyage” exploring Greenland and Iceland.
From May through October, the Zuiderdam will sail seven-day voyages along the Atlantic coast where guests can explore seaside towns, enjoy seafood and learn about maritime history.
The Volendam will offer 10- and 11-day itineraries with ports that include a blend of English and French influences. The sailings to and from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, will include a maiden call at Yorktown (Williamsburg), Virginia. In September, the Volendam also will operate three seven-day itineraries that feature highlights from the region.
“With Zuiderdam beginning in May, we will slightly increase our capacity in the region from previous years and add more verandah staterooms available for booking,” said Beth Bodensteiner, Holland America Line’s chief commercial officer. “Plus, our itineraries present several choices for a truly unique vacation that explores a culturally rich region from an easy gateway for an extended season, including the popular fall foliage and longer voyages up to Greenland and Iceland.”
Highlights of the 2025 season include:
- A 25-day “Canada, New England, Greenland and Iceland” Legendary Voyage departing July 12 onboard the Volendam. Sailing roundtrip from Boston, the cruise features six calls around Iceland, with 11 additional visits in Greenland, Maine and Canada’s Nova Scotia, Labrador and Newfoundland.
- Two different seven-day itineraries aboard the Zuiderdam: “Canada and New England: UNESCO Sites and Québécois Nights”; and “Canada and New England Circle: New Brunswick.”
- A 15-day Atlantic Coast cruise aboard the Zuiderdam from Fort Lauderdale to Quebec City, with an overnight at Quebec City and a call at Yorktown.
- 10- and 11-day itineraries aboard the Volendam between Boston and Montréal in the summer and fall.
