Karen Farndell, Director Sales & Marketing for Holland America Line, said:

“We know a Panama Canal transit is a once-in-a-lifetime experience many of our guests are seeking, and by adding Acajutla to select voyages, we’re making it even more memorable.

“Guests can discover the ‘Pompeii of the Americas’ with a shore excursion to Joya de Cerén archaeological site, where they’ll explore a Mayan farming village remarkably preserved under volcanic ash.

“With four different departure cities, there are so many different ways to experience the Panama Canal aboard one of our ships.

“Guests travelling to Hawaii can do so for the first time on Nieuw Amsterdam. Not only will they have an ideal, mid-sized ship experience as they hop from island to island, but they’ll also have the opportunity to dine at Morimoto by Sea, Nieuw Amsterdam’s newest restaurant.”
