  2. Travel with us to the 49th State and experience the magic that only Alaska can offer, on this spectacular 7-day, round-trip cruise, on Holland America’s, Ms. Oosterdam. Witness lush rainforests, colossal mountains and salmon making their way upstream in the clear river streams, with bear and moose roaming freely in their natural habitat. You may even catch a glimpse of whales breaching the water. Alaska, also, has some of the world's most spectacular glaciers. These glaciers often drop huge chunks of ice, a process called calving, into the sea. The calving sounds like a huge clap of thunder! Alaska is a part of the world where Mother Nature has been left alone in her natural state, where wildlife remains abundant.

  3. What a magnificent time you are going to have on this cruise! Setting sail from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, you will have an opportunity to experience the Panama Canal aboard the luxurious comfort of Holland America’s ship, Ms. Zuiderdam. You will certainly enjoy going through the locks in the canal and, coupled with the wonderful shore excursions the ship has to offer, you are certain to have a lifetime of memories. Excursions are the best way to enjoy the magnificent sights and culture in each of the ports-of-call and to enjoy the warm embrace of the native people. On January 7, 1914, the Panama Canal opened for business, creating a water passage between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. This mega ship mover was considered one of the largest engineering wonders of its time. Cruise ships that pass through the Panama Canal pay toll rates that are based on the number of berths. Every year 17,500 ships move through the locks. You may want to get a balcony for this cruise, as it will take 8 to 10 hours to navigate the locks. You will be able to see the expansion, often called the “third locks,” which doubled the capacity of the Panama Canal, once that portion opened, in 2016. Bring your camera, and be prepared for the trip of a lifetime!
