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.

Our tip

A great way to see Fort Lauderdale is on the hop on hop off water taxi tour – a one day pass gives you unlimited travel and it’s a great way to sightsee as well as to get around.

Arriving in 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.

Holland America Line cruises - MS Amsterdam pool deck

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.

The ship may have a historical feel, but the facilities are as contemporary as they come with great technical workshops and lots of action on board.
