If you’re looking for something unique and exciting to do next New Year’s Eve, celebrate aboard a Holland America Line cruise. With options in Australia, Asia, South America, Mexico, the Caribbean and Panama Canal over the holiday, you can be sure you’ll welcome 2017 in grand style.
When guests break into ‘Auld Lang Syne’ at midnight and you clink glasses with friends old and new, or if you’re dancing the night away at a Black & White Ball or having a quite moment on deck under the stars with your loved one, there’s nothing more spectacular or unforgettable than being aboard for New Year’s Eve. Here are some incredible cruises around the world that allow you to usher in 2017 like never before.
Cross the Panama Canal to Ring in the New Year
One of the greatest man-made marvels in the world, the Panama Canal should be on every traveler’s bucket list. Tick off that adventure on Veendam’s 15-Day Panama Canal Holiday cruise departing Dec. 20 from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to San Diego, California. Transit the canal after visiting our award-winning private island in the Bahamas and Cartagena, Colombia. The actual transit is on Christmas, making the day all the more merry and bright. Visit Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Mexico before welcoming 2017.
Cruise the Caribbean
Many Holland America Line ships spend the winter cruising the Caribbean. Spanning the entire region, this time of year guests can celebrate New Year’s in the eastern, western or southern Caribbean. And there’s no better way to welcome a new year than on a new ship. Embark Koningsdam’s 9-Day Western Caribbean Holiday voyage and soak up the sun while sailing into 2017.
Soak up the Sol on a Cruise to Mexico
The sights, sounds and flavors of Mexico make for an exciting New Year’s celebration. Mexico is the land of sun, sand and turquoise seas, not to mention it’s got incredible history and fantastic food. Mexico’s electric vibe and energetic ambiance make it a fun destination to spend the holiday. Next year Westerdam’s 7-Day Mexican Riviera Holiday cruise visits three of the most popular ports in the country: Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta. The roundtrip San Diego cruise is an ideal weeklong getaway that will ring in a Feliz Ano Nuevo!
These are just a few of the exciting cruises available to celebrate New Year’s.
