Two ships will travel throughout the regions, with ms Veendam offering cruises to both Hawaii and Mexico, and ms Zaandam weaving among the stunning Hawaiian Islands.

“Holland America Line’s Mexico and Hawaii cruises are a fantastic compilation of the must-see ports and highlights in each region,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “The destination experience for guests is enriched with unique onboard activities that bring the local culture and cuisine on board while sailing through these two beautiful parts of the world.”

Veendam‘s cruises to Mexico conveniently sail roundtrip San Diego, Calif., and visit three ports in the country. Departing Nov. 5 and 19, 2015, and Dec. 13, 20 and 27, 2015, the seven-day Mexican Riviera itineraries call atMazatlan, Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta, with scenic cruising in Bahia Magdalena.

Cruise fares for the seven-day Mexican Riviera cruises begin at $549 per person, double occupancy.

The three sailings to Hawaii from fall 2015 through spring 2016 aboard ms Zaandam and ms Veendam feature relaxing days at sea and calls at Hilo, Honolulu, Nawiliwili, Lahaina and Kona, Hawaii. A 17-day departure on ms Zaandam sails from Vancouver, British Columbia, to San Diego, departing Sept. 20, 2015.  Guests enjoy several days at sea to relax on the ship as well as time in Hawaii to enjoy the warm breezes and culture of the islands.

Later in fall, a 17-day cruise on ms Veendam departs Nov. 26, 2015, and sails roundtrip from San Diego; and a 18-day voyage on ms Zaandam departing April 26, 2016, sails roundtrip from Vancouver and adds a call at Victoria, British Columbia.

Go “On Location” in Mexico and Hawaii
On each of these cruises guests take part in cultural activities as part of Holland America Line’s “On Location” program. The itinerary sets the theme for guests to indulge in localized experiences that make time onboard as enriching as visiting the ports of call through lectures, demonstrations, performances and cuisine.

The Hawaii cruises feature activities such as lei making, ukulele lessons, hula dancing classes, Hawaiian language classes, a poolside Hawaiian Luau and Hawaiian beer tastings. Guests on the Mexico cruises enjoy live mariachi band concerts, a poolside Mexican barbecue, tequila tastings, fresh Mexican flowers around the ship and more.
