Fabulous itinerary on a fabulous ship. You could also do it Ft Lauderdale rtn I should imagine, Holland America do come up with some great itineraries.

Look expensive at the time , but I dont think  you would ever regret doing this one.

Fantastic itinerary. I'd need a lotto win to do it though.

I can't find any TA offering this cruise, nor can I bring it up on HA's website. That time period is even missing from Amsterdam's schedule on cruisetimetables.com. Can anyone point me in the right direction, or provide a link?

I got an email from a US TA about it. I guess if you rang Holland America they could find the cruise. There is also a thread o the Holland America board about it too.

 

Its on the Holland America website. I just searched.

 

https://www.hollandamerica.com/en_US/find-a-cruise/W0F79A/A060.html

 

Looks like its heavily booked.

 

Inside from $18,699 AUD pp

 

Oceanview from $20,699 pp

 

Lanai SOLD OUT

 

Vista Suite $37,599 pp

On another matter  (semi related). I never really considered cruising with Holland America. However, I have seen some of their itineraries over the years and they do some really interesting ones. I always look at Princess. However, Princess seem to do the same same same at times. I'm going to follow Holland America more closely.

Wow, $236 per night pp for an Inside is a bit steep, wonder if they are selling legs, say Dubai to Fort Lauderdale.

We did one earlier this year and have some FCCs as we enjoyed it and they do seem to do some different itineraries.

I think the pricing might have gone up. But then again its unique ports and they only offer this itinerary every 6 years.

Bummer, It seems it is only available as either the 79 night (Boston) or 74 night cruises (Fort Lauderdale return)

We always found Holland America to be the best. Before cruising went mass market , they held the record for the most number of repeat passengers. r.
