Holland America Line Announces 2025-2026 Caribbean Season

Whether you like to sail the Eastern, Western, or Southern Caribbean, prefer a partial Panama Canal transit, or want to spend the holidays in the warm Caribbean sun, Holland America Line has the itinerary for you. Actually, there are almost 30 different itineraries between October 2025 and April 2026 from which to choose. Additionally, Holland America Line is adding Miami, Florida as a homeport as well as sailing all three Pinnacle-Class ships–Rotterdam, Nieuw Statendam, Koningsdam–in the Caribbean.

This will be the first time all three of our Pinnacle-Class ships are in the Caribbean together, allowing for even more opportunities for guests to experience all we have to offer,” said Beth Bodensteiner, chief commercial officer for Holland America Line. “With demand for Caribbean cruises remaining strong, we’ve planned a robust season allowing guests to choose the islands they want to visit and the ideal length for their vacation.”

Every Caribbean itinerary will visit the cruise line’s award-winning private island in the Bahamas, Half Moon Cay. The island features the finest beaches in the region, crystal waters, private cabanas and amazing excursions. Some itineraries feature more time in port and the opportunity to experience that Caribbean nightlife. 

Five ships–Eurodam, Koningsdam, Nieuw Statendam, Volendam and Zuiderdam–will sail roundtrip Eastern Caribbean itineraries from Fort Lauderdale and Miami in Florida. Itineraries will range from 7- to 14-days in length and call on Grand Turk, Amber Cove, Key West, San Juan, St. Maarten, Trinidad, Half Moon Cay and much more. 

Eurodam, Nieuw Statendam and Zuiderdam will sail 7-day roundtrip itineraries from Fort Lauderdale and Miami in Florida to the Western Caribbean. They will call at Cozumel, Mexico; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; Grand Cayman and Half Moon Cay.

Southern Caribbean itineraries will be aboard Koningsdam, Rotterdam and Zuiderdam and offer 9- and 10-day voyages from Fort Lauderdale and Miami in Florida. The 9-day itineraries will call on the ABC Islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao, Half Moon Cay with the 10-day itineraries adding Grand Turk and Amber Cove.

Guests who wish to explore the Panama Canal can board either Rotterdam or Zuiderdam in Fort Lauderdale and enjoy a roundtrip 12-day “Panama Canal Discovery” without a coast-to-coast transit. Guests can sail a partial transit of the Canal, explore the Panama Canal’s Gatun Lake and enjoy the ports of Cartagena, Colombia; Colon, Panama; Puerto Limon, Costa Rica; Grand Cayman, Curaçao and Half Moon Cay.

Cruisers may also combine nonrepeating, back-to-back itineraries and create a Collectors’ Voyage for the ultimate Caribbean exploration for less than booking individual cruises. Of course, Holland America Line is offering Early Booking Bonuses for a limited time.
