Holland America Line gears up for its 2026 Grand World Voyage

Holland America Line is gearing up to set to sail one of its most ambitious Grand World Voyages in 2026.

Details of the 132-day cruise – that will span all seven continents, including a special four-day Antarctic Experience – was announced by Holland America Lines’ president, Gus Antorcha to 2024 Grand World Voyage guests aboard Zuiderdam, which is currently sailing in between Okinawa and Tokyo.

In 2026, the Grand World Voyage will be aboard Volendam, providing guests with an intimate experience on one of the cruise line’s smaller ships and offering an opportunity to cruise France’s Gironde Estuary and visit Bordeaux.

The voyage will visit 47 ports across 39 countries on an east-to-west route, sailing roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale, Florida — travelling as far south as Antarctica and north all the way up to Oslo, Norway.

Antorcha observed: “We asked thousands of past guests and travel advisors for their opinions about the perfect Grand World Voyage, so this may be one of our most thoroughly researched routes ever for a world cruise.”

He continued: “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.”

For a limited time, guests who book the 132-day Grand World Voyage receive up to US$2000 in onboard credit per guest, a 3% pay in full discount, a free Wi-Fi Surf package and more.
