25 April

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 Montréal

Bilingual Montréal is Québec's largest city, a vibrant island metropolis with a distinctive blend of old style European charm and thrusting modernity. Architectural highlights include the beautiful Basilique Notre-Dame-de-Montréal, and the city also boasts the world's third largest botanical garden. Winters here can be harsh, but in summer the city comes alive with festivals, including the famous International Jazz Festival in June/July. Montréal is also a real Mecca for foodies, and can pose a serious threat to the waistline, with all manner of gastronomic treats on offer.

Don't miss

The onomatopoetic Tam Tam day if you’re around on a Sunday during the summer – go to Mont-Royal park to see, and hear, the drums.

What we love

The grand proportions of Veendam are enhanced by a Holland America Line art and antique collection worth over two million dollars. We do like the new Lanai staterooms, with sliding glass doors opening onto the walk-around Lower Promenade Deck.
