From Boston, the Zuiderdam sets sail today for a 35-night cruise through northern Europe, Greenland and Canada. In late August, the vessel will return to the United States after cruising to 18 destinations in nine countries and islands. Among the stops on the itinerary are ports in Canada and New England, such as Bar Harbor and Corner Brook. Afterward, the Zuiderdam will visit four ports in Greenland and Iceland: Nanortalik, Paamiut, Isafjord, and Akureyri.
After visiting Lerwick in the Shetland Islands, the 1,900-guest vessel continues on to Western Europe. Before returning to the United States, the ship visits ports in Ireland, Northern Ireland, and the Isle of Lewis before arriving in the Netherlands. Djupivogur and St. Anthony are among the less usual cruise destinations the Zuiderdam visits on its way back to North America.
As soon as the 2002-built vessel returns to Boston, it will offer a series of shorter Canadian and New England cruises. In addition to visiting Halifax, Sydney and Charlottetown, the seven-night cruises travel one way between Quebec City and Boston. A 73-night journey to Africa and the Indian Ocean begins in October as the Zuiderdam repositions to Florida.
On a roundtrip itinerary from Fort Lauderdale, passengers will visit 26 ports in 22 countries and territories, including Greece, Egypt, Jordan, Seychelles, Tanzania, Mayotte, Madagascar, Mozambique, South Africa, Ghana, and Angola. A variety of amenities are offered on board the Zuiderdam, which is part of Holland America Line’s Vista-Class ships. These amenities include the Explorer’s Lounge, Ocean Bar, Crow’s Nest Lounge, as well as the Pinnacle Grill Steakhouse.
