Cruise the world's wonders – in elegance and style

An African safari, the romance of Venice, the grandeur of Asian palaces, the drama of Machu Picchu and the great pyramids, the exquisite pleasures of a transoceanic crossing… whether your first world cruise or your tenth, Holland America Line invites you to indulge in the ultimate travel experience. In 2008, our Grand Voyages celebrate the 50th anniversary of our first world cruise. In commemoration, Holland America Line is offering four unique and unparalleled Grand Voyage itineraries. Our twin flagship ms Amsterdam circumnavigates the world and explores Asia, Australia and the Pacific Islands; our intimate ms Prinsendam explores South America, cruises to the white continent of Antarctica and circumnavigates Africa. Intriguing itineraries combine maiden calls with perennial favorites and extended stays in favored world ports. Launching our next half-century of Grand World Voyages in 2009, Holland America Line welcomes the return of two of our most popular voyages – Grand South America and Grand Mediterranean – both available for booking in October 2007. Onboard, Holland America Line's internationally renowned service and value is taken to its highest level. Welcome aboard for the journey of a lifetime.

Onboard Indulgence

Time is life's greatest luxury and the beauty of a Holland America Line Grand Voyage is the time you have to indulge in our award-winning service and the many onboard amenities designed for every age and interest. Have breakfast delivered to your stateroom, be pampered in our Greenhouse Spa, learn about great wines and fabulous food preparation at our wine bar and Culinary Arts Center, read The New York Times, surf the Internet or just relax in one of our teak deck chairs and watch the scenery go by. On a Grand Voyage you have time to enjoy it all, as often as you like.
