Holland America Line’s Two Ships to Tour the Far East
- Business & Finance
From winter 2014 through spring 2015, Holland America Line will have two ships exploring the mysteries and wonders of the Far East.
The 1,432-passenger ms Volendam will sail a series of 14- to 17-day cruises and nonrepeating itineraries, while the 1,404-passenger ms Rotterdam takes an epic 90-day “Passage to the Far East” journey.
All of the cruises feature exotic ports of call with extended and overnight stays at some of Asia’s most iconic cities. The longer visits provide travelers ample time to explore the region’s extensive collection of historical and notable landmarks.
“As more travelers look to fulfill their dream of a vacation to far-off corners of the globe, the Far East remains popular due to its historical significance, wealth of sightseeing opportunities and mysterious allure,” said Richard Meadows, executive vice president, marketing, sales and guest programs for Holland America Line. “From overland tours to the Bagan Temples to a chance to see the famed Komodo dragon, the length and diversity of our Asia cruises make them a truly unique experience.”
The cruises include:
- New 14-day Asian Adventure Voyages
- 14-day Far East Discovery Voyage
- 16-Day Great Barrier Reef Voyage
- 14-day China and Japan Voyage
- 17-day Trans-Pacific
- 90-Day Passage to the Far East Voyage
Segments ranging from 34 to 55 days are available between Rotterdam, Southampton and Singapore.
*Cruise fares for the complete 90-day cruise start at $10,999, $10,899 for the 88-day journey, $7,199 for the 55-day passage and $4,399 for the 34-day segment.
