Holland America Line's Amsterdam, Koningsdam, Volendam and Zaandam will head to South America and Antarctica in 2019–2020 with cruises ranging from 14 to 48 days.
Guests will explore exotic and remote ports that offer experiences like sailing on the Amazon River, strolling the streets of Buenos Aires, relaxing in Rio de Janeiro and visiting the Incan ruins of Machu Picchu.
