Holland America Returns to Bermuda
Holland America fans rejoice! Starting May 2, 2015 the cruise line will officially return to Bermuda after leaving in 2012. These new itineraries depart from Boston and Quebec City and feature 7- and 14-day itineraries. All of the sailings include four days docked in Hamilton, Bermuda. The 14-day itineraries both feature ports of call in Canada and New England.
Bermuda is home to natural beauty like Horseshoe Bay and Crystal Cave. Adventurers get a thrill out of motor scooting along the island’s curvy seaside roads and scuba diving to see ships wrecked off the coast of the island. Bermuda is also a great place for history lovers as St. George, its former capital, is considered the oldest continually populated English town in the “New World.” It is also the oldest remaining British colony.
Holland America’s Bermuda cruises sail from May through July 2015 and are all aboard the ms Veendam. The Veendam carries 1,498 passengers and has 10 decks. Onboard you can find some of Holland America’s signature services and facilities. For instance, you can take a cooking class at the Culinary Arts Center where the ship’s chefs show off techniques and teach the delicious recipes you’ll taste onboard. There are also the Greenhouse Salon and the Crow’s Nest observation lounge.
