Bookings are now open for Holland America Line’s (HAL) 2025-2026 South America and Antarctica season, featuring a series of longer cruises up to 22 days.
From November 2025 through March 2026, Oosterdam will cruise between San Antonio (Santiago), Chile, and either Buenos Aires, Argentina, or Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The itineraries showcase iconic sites in South America such as Iguazu Falls, Machu Picchu and Torres del Paine National Park, along with Antarctica’s scenery and wildlife.
“South America is a vibrant region that offers contrasting experiences within one cruise, sailing from the tropics to glaciers and busy cities to some of the most remote places in the world,” said HAL VP of revenue management Dan Rough.
“Our mid-sized ships make it possible to craft itineraries that feature an exciting collection of South American ports; and our menus, enrichment and entertainment on board ensure guests come away feeling deeply connected to the places they visited.”
Oosterdam to offer extended stays in South America
Oosterdam will sail 14-day South America Passage itineraries between San Antonio (Santiago) and Buenos Aires, calling at Puerto Montt, Puerto Chacabuco and Punta Arenas, Chile; Ushuaia, Argentina; Stanley, Falkland Islands; and Montevideo, Uruguay.
Meanwhile, a 17-Day Panama Canal and Inca Discovery cruise sails between Fort Lauderdale and San Antonio (Santiago), offering two nights at Callao (Lima), Peru to allow extra time for guests to take an overland tour to Machu Picchu.
It comes after HAL announced plans to open a new and exclusive dining experience on the 2,100-guest Nieuw Amsterdam.
