There is an itinerary to please every type of cruiser. For couples, the seven-night Tropical Caribbean cruise departing Florida on 13 February 2022 on board Rotterdam is the perfect romantic getaway.

Travel agents can highlight how a couple can spend Valentine’s Day relaxing on Half Moon Cay, the line’s own award-winning private island in the Bahamas, which celebrates 25 years in 2022.

For families, there is Club HAL, which caters for children 3 years old and above, as well as the Loft & Oasis, which is ideal for teens.

Unforgettable itineraries with Holland America Line

HAL offers 10-night-plus cruises, meaning guests have ample time in this glorious region to explore and return home relaxed and brimming with exciting travel tales.

Travel agents should emphasise the variety of ports on offer, with cruises sailing from Fort Lauderdale to the ABC islands – Aruba, Barbados and Curacao. HAL also goes to the coasts of South America, where most Caribbean cruises do not reach.

What’s more HAL’s own private Caribbean island, Half Moon Cay, is an unforgettable experience.

Guests visiting this gorgeous spot can explore its two-mile-long crescent beach and swim in clear blue waters. Activities include horse riding through the surf and hiring a private cabana.

These itineraries are complemented with exclusive talks held on board, with HAL’s Explorations Central programme featuring experts, captivating stories and tips.
