Gus Antorcha, President of Holland America Line, said: “This itinerary includes destinations we know guests love, packed with memorable moments and overnight stays.

“We are purposefully visiting fewer ports to allow more time to explore the destinations we visit and to create a voyage that does not feel rushed.
