Setting sail from Fort Lauderdale

These days Fort Lauderdale is a sophisticated place awash with upmarket hotels and excellent restaurants. The glorious weather and swathes of golden beach are still a huge draw, but there are also plenty of cultural attractions, such as the Museum of Art and the Museum of Discovery and Science. The city also boasts 300 miles of navigable waterways and canals, meaning there's plenty of space for the resident millionaires to park their yachts, and the cruise port is one of the busiest in the world.

Don't miss

Bonnet House Museum and Gardens is a great visit, with remains dating back to 2000 BC – in Florida - who knew there was anything so old there?! It’s a fascinating museum too, and the gardens are beautiful.

Arriving in Auckland

Auckland offers a buzzing waterfront and a vibrant arts scene, and provides a fascinating introduction to New Zealand's proud cultural heritage. The centre is home to excellent shopping and a number of fantastic restaurants, while the north of the city has a distinctly more laid-back vibe, and to the west is the city's oldest wine region.

Our tip

Standing 328 metres tall, the Sky Tower offers the best view of the city from the observation deck or from its two restaurants.

Holland America’s Amsterdam features a stylish Dutch elegance and heritage, with all the facilities of a large ship, alongside the intimacy of quite a small one, with just 1380 guests.

What we love

Amsterdam is a real piece of history, with original art deco pieces and lots of intimate bars and lounges with fascinating artwork reflecting the company's 140 year marine heritage. At the heart of Amsterdam is an extraordinary sculpture which fills the three storey atrium - the Planeto Astrolabium.
