Sail from Florida to California on one of Holland America’s best-known ships, the m/v Westerdam. Spend one night in Fort Lauderdale before boarding the ship. Sailing from east to west provides you the advantage of getting the long, cross-country flight out of the way first, leaving just a short hop home from San Diego at the end of the cruise.

The 15-night cruise stops at Holland America’s private island, Half Moon Cay, and Cartagena, Columbia before its full transit of the Panama Canal, called by some the Eighth Wonder of the World. Workers in Panama recently completed a nearly 10-year expansion project that doubled the canal’s maritime traffic. Additional port calls include Puerto Caldera/Puntarenas (Costa Rica), where you can experience a tropical rainforest, Corinto (Nicaragua), Puerto Quetzal (Guatamala), and Acapulco and Cabo San Lucas (Mexico).

We continue to partner with Holland America Line for this adventure because of its commitment to service and because we know and believe in the quality of its ships, programs and shore excursions. The m/v Westerdam is a midsize ship which carries passengers with style and grace – it’s large enough to offer a host of exciting amenities but more personal and intimate than the “floating cities” of other cruise lines.
