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 Vancouver

Cosmopolitan Vancouver is a city that rewards exploration, an eminently liveable place and an easy gateway to the natural beauty of British Columbia. The culinary scene here is a particular draw, with seafood galore and some fantastic Asian restaurants, and the city has also been at the forefront of the craft beer movement. Verdant Stanley Park is a favourite of locals and visitors alike, while Kitsilano's beaches and wooden houses are wonderfully picturesque. Cultural attractions tend to be on a smaller scale than you'd expect from a city of this size, but the thrill of stumbling across one of Vancouver's quirky little galleries is all part of the city's appeal.

Our tip

Canadians call their one-dollar coins “loonies” (because it bears the image of a loon) and their two-dollar coins “toonies” so sort out your vocabulary and talk like a local!

The Ship

Your home from home

Holland America Line cruises - MS Eurodam in New York
Holland America Line cruises - MS Eurodam Signature Suite
Holland America Line cruises - MS Eurodam Gallery Bar

A Holland America Signature-class ship, Eurodam carries just over 2,000 passengers – still mid-sized by today’s standards, and reflecting a contemporary take on the company’s lengthy heritage.

What we love

Some excellent dining choices on this gracious ship give guests a chance to ring the changes in the evenings - entertainment too is varied and stimulating. In keeping with a long Holland America Line tradition, the ship features an extraordinary art collection - in this instance themed around the Dutch Golden Age, ranging from 17th Century watercolour maps to a contemporary reinterpretation of Rembrandt's famous painting The Night Watch.

Capacity 2,104 Guests
Crew 929 International Staff
Style

Holland America guests are sociable and relaxed, with enquiring minds and a participatory spirit - there are lots of classes and workshops to enjoy on board, with new skills to learn while at sea, and new places to explore ashore.
