From fall 2018 through spring 2019, two Holland America Line (HAL) ships will say “Aloha” to the sun-drenched islands of Hawaii.
Guests interested in exploring the famed island chain can choose from nine cruises with itineraries ranging from 16 to 20 days aboard Eurodam and Amsterdam. Hawaii sailings depart from Seattle, Vancouver, San Diego and Los Angeles.
Most itineraries feature an overnight call in Honolulu, where guests have extra time to visit Pearl Harbor, relax on Waikiki Beach, take in the views from Diamond Head State Monument or spend the evening enjoying traditional Hawaiian food and entertainment at an authentic luau. The cruises also call at Hilo, Nawiliwili and Lahaina, with most adding a call at Kona.
To kick off the season, Eurodam departs Seattle Sept. 29 for an 18-day Circle Hawaii cruise that calls at Victoria and Vancouver, before heading to the Hawaiian ports of Nawiliwili, Honolulu, Lahaina and Hilo. Guests also can choose to embark two days later, Oct. 1, and sail roundtrip from Vancouver on a 16-day sailing.
A second 18-day voyage is available aboard Eurodam Nov. 11, sailing roundtrip from San Diego. Those planning for a holiday getaway can enjoy Amsterdam’s 17-day Hawaii Holiday cruise, sailing roundtrip from Los Angeles on Dec. 21.
In 2019, similar itineraries are available aboard Eurodam, including two 17-day sailings departing Feb. 3 and Feb. 20, as well as a 16-day sailing, embarking April 13.
