Two Holland America line ships, Eurodam and Amsterdam, will offer nine extended cruises to Hawaii in 2018-19.

From this autumn through to spring 2019, two Holland America Line ships will visit the 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, Washington; Vancouver, British Columbia; and San Diego and Los Angeles, California.

What will the cruises include?

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.

Hawaiian cruise options

To kick off the season, Eurodam will depart from Seattle in September, 2018, for an 18-day Circle Hawaii cruise that calls at Victoria and Vancouver, British Columbia, before heading to the Hawaiian ports of Nawiliwili, Honolulu, Lahaina and Hilo. 

Guests also can choose to embark two days later and sail roundtrip from Vancouver on a 16-day sailing. A second 18-day voyage is available aboard Eurodam too, conveniently sailing roundtrip from San Diego. 

In 2019, three similar itineraries are available aboard Eurodam, including two 17-day sailings departing in February, as well as a 16-day sailing, embarking in April. Cruisers interested in extending their vacation can lengthen the April cruise and disembark in Vancouver after visiting Victoria for a 20-day voyage.

Guests who wish to dive deeper into the South Pacific can select Eurodam’s 28-day Hawaii, Tahiti and Marquesas voyage in March 2019. Sailing roundtrip from San Diego, cruisers will enjoy visits to six ports in French Polynesia, including overnights in both Bora Bora and Papeete, as well as two ports in Hawaii and a call at Fanning Island. 

Cruisers can further their exploration of the region on the Amsterdam’s 51-day Tales of the South Pacific voyage in October 2019. Sailing roundtrip San Diego, the ship will visit Hawaii, Tahiti, as well as calls in America Samoa, the Cook Islands, Fiji, Vanuatu and Tonga.

Group cruise bookings are available, and you can even charter your own ship which includes tailored itineraries.
