Setting sail from Sydney

One or our favourite cities in the world, we love pretty much everything about Sydney. Offering outdoor living at its best, the city is known for the excellent beaches but offers so much more, including a thriving and varied food scene inspired by Asian and European flavours. Walk through the Royal Botanic Gardens and admire the amazing views of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House from Mrs Macquarie's Chair, enjoy the cafés and bars in The Rocks district, walk across the top of the Harbour Bridge (or enjoy the easier option of a view from the top of one of the stone towers) or just relax on the beach.

Don't miss

The Harbour Bridge is our favourite site in the city, whether you do the Bridge Climb Experience or tour the Pylon Lookout. It's best viewed late afternoon from the east side of Circular Quay.

Arriving in Mumbai

We love Mumbai! Formerly known as Bombay, this amazing city is larger than life and packed to bursting with things to see and do. Here people of all religions and nationalities live cheek by jowl, thriving communities from all over the world with the foods, smells, languages and rituals maintained at top volume - here in Mumbai, everything really is turned up to 11! For many people, the seething rush of humanity is too much, and we quite understand why some tell us they will never go back. But we think you could return time and again, and never get to grips with this thriving city. Be prepared to be overwhelmed!

Our tip

Keep your hands clean, drink plenty of bottled water, be careful about what you eat and you’ll be absolutely fine. Oh, and keep an open mind.

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.

Get a guide to take you away from the tourist hotspots, exploring instead the many different communities and markets, for a taste of the real Mumbai. We thought the Fishing Slum was a wonderful place.
