20 Night Cruise sailing from Copenhagen to New York aboard Zuiderdam.
The ms Zuiderdam began her inaugural season in 2002 as the first ship in our Vista-class series. She embraces the latest industry and environmental technologies such as her use of a diesel-electric power plant for optimal energy efficiency and an Azipod propulsion system.
At the heart of the ms Zuiderdam, suspended in a three-story atrium, a Waterford Crystal Seahorse sets the mood for exquisite pieces of art to be seen throughout this elegant ship. Other notable pieces include a painting of Queen Beatrix by pop culture artist and icon, Andy Warhol, medallions by Frank Lloyd Wright, cast aluminum elevator doors inspired by the art deco work of the New York Chrysler Building, and a massive floral painting by Charles Ben. You will also discover a large collection of antiques and centuries-old paintings throughout the ship.
Highlights of this cruise:
On your cruise to Copenhagen with Holland America Line, you can step into Amager Square and be in the heart of Copenhagen's venerable gabled facades and the carnival of humanity eating, drinking and seizing the day. Built on a series of islands, Copenhagen balances tradition and kinetic energy, while all the while the Little Mermaid statue keeps a thoughtful watch on the harbor.
Ålesund, a quaint fishing town of approximately 45,000 in western Norway, has been called Norway’s most beautiful city. A fire in 1904 destroyed much of it, resulting in the town being rebuilt in the Art Nouveau style—also known as Jugendstil—that was popular around the turn of the 20th century. A year after the fire, Norway gained its independence from Sweden, which lead to a campaign to build a "Norwegian town" to mark the creation of the new nation. The colorful buildings feature castlelike turrets and spires with intricate facades of ornamental flowers, gargoyles and Viking-inspired decorations.Bordering the Norwegian Sea, this area is also famous for its mountain ranges and fjords. For those looking for a more active visit, Ålesund offers great hiking, mountain biking and kayaking. One of the highlights is climbing the 418 steps that lead up Mount Aksla for a spectacular view of the city and the Sunnmøre Alps. Nearby is the Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its beautiful waterfalls. This is also home to Atlanterhavsparken, or the Atlantic Sea Park, one of the largest aquariums in Europe.
Surrounded on three sides by stunning mountain vistas and open to the sea, this idyllic harbor town boasts the largest number of early 19th century preserved wood buildings in Iceland. From its splendid waterfalls to its peaceful lagoon and deep fjord, explore the natural beauty of this small haven.
Don't forget your camera as you visit this picture perfect town.
Iceland's second-largest city offers a picturesque harbor as well as numerous artists' workshops and galleries. Explore the lunar landscape near Lake Myvatn, marveling at its tumultuous volcanic crater lake, boiling mud pools and steaming earth.
Bordered on three sides by dramatic mountains that form a natural harbor, the idyllic town of Ísafjörður—population 2,600—serves as a charming exploration hub for the surrounding Westfjords peninsula. Settled since the 16th century, and traditionally dependent on fishing as its main source of income, its streets are today lined with old wooden houses interspersed with occasional shops, restaurants and cafés.Despite its low-key atmosphere, Ísafjörður offers plenty to do, from visiting local museums and enjoying a game of golf, to hiking, biking and kayaking around the town and harbor. The town also hosts several notable events, such as Iceland's oldest cross-country ski race, the mud-football European Championships and a classical music festival, Við Djúpið.The rugged and remote Westfjords offer many more attractions. A daily summer ferry transports visitors to the scenic Hornstrandir Nature Reserve and to Vigur, an island that's home to many protected bird populations. Follow the region’s striking coastline and you’ll find snow-streaked mountains, waterfalls and beaches.
Iceland is being slowly torn in two. The country sits atop the mid-Atlantic Ridge, where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates are pulling away from each other. The end result is that Iceland hisses, fizzes, and bursts with volcanic energy that powers the island nation and makes for a fantasia of attractions for cruise visitors. Reykjavik, the capital city, is noted for its abundant parks, brightly colored houses, and steaming thermal pools. And music. The city has an incredibly vibrant music scene, and Icelandic bands have had an outsize effect on the world music scene.
The name "Qaqortoq" means "the White Place," and indeed, 85% of the area is under ice. Explore the small town of 3,400 and learn how people survive on this immense, remote island administered by the Danes but desperate for individual recognition of its distinctive culture.
Greenland's southernmost town, Nanortalik is cruise destination surrounded by the steep mountain peaks of Tasermiut Fjord, whose rugged landscape and lush vegetation attracts serious climbers all year long. Inside the fjord are the ruins of an Augustinian monastery and the towering trees of the Qingua Valley. Visit the old town around the colonial harbor, thought to be the last point of departure of the Norse voyagers when they sailed to or from Greenland. Follow it up with a chilly trip to the ice cap by boat, or warm up in the natural hot springs at Uunartoq.
St John's, Newfoundland
Closer to London than it is to Canada’s west coast, the capital of Newfoundland, St. John’s, has long looked east and across the Atlantic. It is the easternmost city in North America, excluding Greenland, and has its own time zone, a half-hour ahead of the rest of eastern Canada.Long before there was a permanent town, established around 1630, British fishermen would set up camp here in the summer. To this day the harbor remains the center of the city, with its oldest buildings and streets (including Water Street, the oldest street in North America) nearby. And although it was primarily fishing and whaling that drove the economy of St. John’s for centuries, today the oil and natural gas found beneath the ocean floor is increasingly important.The rest of St. John’s sits on hills around the harbor, which has led to frequent comparisons to San Francisco. The tallest, Signal Hill, is one of St. John’s most famous sights with its panoramic views. While the city shines at a distance, it is also in the details that it charms visitors, with its houses painted in jelly-bean hues and cozy restaurants and pubs that provide relief from Atlantic breezes.
It's big enough to be the economic and cultural capital of eastern Canada, but small enough to be easygoing and hospitable. Halifax residents have it good, the city is located on one of the planet's great natural harbors and adorned with landmarks like the Citadel fortress, Pier 21 (Canada's Ellis Island), and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Outside the city, cruise visitors can discover the weatherbeaten landscape of Nova Scotia's south shore. See craggy coastlines, the bouldered topography of Peggy's Cove, and the German village of Lunenburg, so meticulously restored it has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
New York City, the city that’s inspired so many nicknames—the Big Apple, Gotham, the City That Never Sleeps—is a place of dazzling contrasts, kaleidoscopic diversity and thrumming energy. There’s simply no other metropolis in the Western Hemisphere, or possibly the world, that rivals the intense vitality of New York, New York. Little wonder that, at least for locals, there’s one moniker for their hometown that rings truest: the Center of the Universe.However you spend your time in New York, your experience is likely to be superlative. The city’s art museums and attractions, sweeping parks and glorious, historic buildings are among the most iconic places and sights on the planet; the entertainment, shopping, dining, sightseeing and people-watching here are all deservedly legendary. Your only trouble will be choosing what to do first in New York. A stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge, followed by a shopping spree and a pie at one of the city’s original pizzerias? An aerial view of the skyline from a soaring observation deck, then a Broadway show and a meal whipped up by a James Beard-award-winning chef?
