14 Night Cruise sailing from Ft Lauderdale roundtrip aboard Nieuw Statendam.

Honoring our past while looking to the future, Nieuw Statendam is the sixth ship in Holland America Line’s history to bear the name “Statendam.” Launching in December 2018, Nieuw Statendam carries forward the nautical heritage, gracious service and classic style for which Holland America Line is known — while setting a new standard for 21st-century elegance. Nieuw Statendam is sister ship to Koningsdam and is the second of our Pinnacle-class ships.

Highlights of this cruise:

Ft Lauderdale
There is an abundance of things to see and do in the Fort Lauderdale area: visit the newly redesigned Fort Lauderdale Beach and cafes, stroll the historic Riverwalk, shop the luxurious stores on Las Olas Boulevard or venture to the Everglades for an intriguing air boat excursion.

Half Moon Cay
Half Moon Cay (also known as Little San Salvador Island) is one of about 700 islands that make up the archipelago of the Bahamas. It is located roughly halfway between Eleuthera and Cat Island. It is a private island, owned by Holland America Line, a subsidiary of Carnival Corporation & PLC, which uses it as a one-day stop (port of call) for the cruise ships it operates in the region.

Activities offered on the island include swimming, sunning, scuba diving, jet-skiing, cycling, and snorkeling. Deep-sea fishing, parasailing, glass-bottom boat rides, and nature walks also are available. A variety of water toys are available for rent, including Hobie catamarans, Sunfish sailboats, windsurfing sailboards, and kayaks. There are volleyball and basketball courts, horseshoes, shuffleboard, a fitness trail with exercise stations, horseback riding, and nature trails for hiking.

Grand Turk
About a quarter mile from the western beaches at Grand Turk, the sea floor drops 7,000 feet right down into dark blue. Just at the edge of the dropoff, there's a reef pocked with arches, turrets, and tunnels called the Grand Turk Wall. The reef is a haven for fish, and with its clear water, for divers, too. Cruise to Grand Turk for the diving, and if not, come for the beaches. Grand Turk is fringed with them, lying as it does at the southeastern end of the Bahamian archipelago. Grand Turk has witnessed a lot of history, from Ponce de Leon to the space race. Come to the National Museum in the capital, Cockburn Town, to get a taste of it.

Amber Cove, Dominican Republic
Located on the Dominican Republic's north coast, the port of Amber Cove, near Puerto Plata, is a new phenomenon. Built in 2015, the area was fashioned as an homage to the country’s colonial architecture and features restaurants, bars and shops, as well as an activity center, a pool and cabanas. But it’s the neighboring region, known as the Amber Coast for its plethora of the semiprecious stone, that’s this port’s true draw. Along with golden-sand beaches and dramatic cliffs, there's the city of Puerto Plata, one of the Caribbean’s oldest, founded in the early 1500s. Another nearby option is Santiago de los Caballeros, known locally as simply Santiago, about an hour's drive from the port. The second-largest city in the Dominican Republic, it is home to excellent museums, historic buildings and cigar and rum makers.

Key West, Florida, US
One of the first things you’ll notice about Key West, after the colorful gingerbread wooden houses and the amazing sunsets, is the constant crowing of roosters. Hundreds of the noisy birds—along with their quieter-clucking mates—roam the streets at all hours, and are nearly as synonymous with Key West as its six-toed cats, the famous furry residents of Ernest Hemingway’s mansion in the Old Town district. They’re all part of the quirky charm of the United States' southernmost point, whose compact 11 square kilometers (4.2 square miles) pack in everything from gorgeous historic architecture and spectacular fishing and sailing to a raucous party scene along famed Duval Street.

While the island is known for its laid-back approach to life—“Margaritaville” singer Jimmy Buffett developed his signature musical style in bars around town—it also has a flourishing creative scene, with many galleries and artists' studios as well as live theater. But back to those brilliant sunsets: There is no shortage of places in Key West to soak in the fiery spectacle, from sunset cruises to rowdy waterfront bars to peaceful beachside parks.

San Juan, Puerto Rico
Back in the 1500s, Puerto Rico was one of the first Caribbean islands to be settled, and its capital, today's San Juan, became a vital hub of Spain’s New World colonies. The historic part of the city, known as Old San Juan, is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site; it's also a National Historic Site within the U.S. National Park Service.

Strolling the narrow cobblestoned streets of Old San Juan, you'll discover a historic treasure surrounded by massive city walls. You can climb the ramparts of imposing fortresses like El Morro, at the entrance to the bay, and visit the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista, one of the oldest churches in the Americas and the final resting place of the city’s founder, Ponce de León.

Modern San Juan extends well beyond the historic district and offers diversions of its own. Condado, a lively beachfront neighborhood, has high-rise resorts and trendy waterfront bars. Visitors may sample one of Puerto Rico’s best-known products at Casa Bacardí, the rum distillery across the bay. And stunning natural wonders await just outside the city, including the rain forest and waterfalls of El Yunque National Forest and the otherworldly lights of Fajardo’s bioluminescent bay.

St. Thomas, U.S.V.I.
The capital island of the U.S. Virgin Islands is often the first stop for travelers as they begin to explore the Caribbean. Its easy access, use of American currency and cultural cues, as well as its reputation for safety, make St. Thomas the easy first choice. But just because it appeals to the comfortable side of travel doesn't mean that St. Thomas is basic. Just the opposite—the 80-square-kilometer (31-square-mile) island is full of superlatives. It's home to some of the Caribbean's highest viewpoints, spectacularly positioned among verdant tropical foliage. It offers some of the best snorkeling around. And the island has got the hands-down coolest attraction in the region—an ice museum.

St. Thomas is encircled by pristine beaches, and the island's towns offer excellent shopping and dining. Charlotte Amalie, the main town, buzzes with activity: It's one of the busiest cruise ports in the Caribbean. Founded in 1666 and renamed in 1691 to honor the Danish queen, Charlotte Amalie contains excellent examples of Danish-colonial architecture. In fact, a number of sites in Charlotte Amalie are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas
Enjoy the perfect day of play on our pristine private island, from sunning on two miles of white sand to watersports, nature hikes, deep sea fishing, and more. For relaxing, reserve a private air-conditioned cabana by the sea. For adventure, feed the gentle rays at Stingray Cove, ride a horse into the surf or visit Half Moon Lagoon, the island's aqua park. Discover why Half Moon Cay—included on nearly every Caribbean itinerary—consistently wins guests' hearts.
