HAL's 2021 Grand World Voyage Makes 49 Calls In 20 Countries Over 128 Days
Bookings for Holland America Line's 2021 Grand World Voyage aboard Amsterdam are now open.
Circling the globe for 128 days, the epic world cruise makes 47 calls in more than 20 countries, visits 35 UNESCO World Heritage sites, and features 19 late or overnight departures so guests can experience more ports from day through night.
Cruising roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the ship departs 4JAN, 2021, and sails into the heart of the Amazon River before taking a westerly route through the Panama Canal to the South Pacific, Asia, the Middle East and Mediterranean before crossing the Atlantic Ocean, arriving back at Port Everglades 13MAY.
"Our Grand World Voyage is the pinnacle of cruising, giving travellers the ultimate way to see and experience dozens of cultures and countries around the world in a way that combines all elements of travel — from learning the history to simply taking in the scenery," said Orlando Ashford, HAL's president.
"There’s a camaraderie among guests on our Grand Voyages that’s special, and those who are able to embark on this journey with us will find that it’s not just the extraordinary ports we visit but also connections they make along the way that make it memorable."
Highlights of the 2021 Grand World Voyage include an Amazon River exploration, transits of the Panama and Suez canals, and calls at several ports that are gateways to some must-see sites including the Great Wall of China, Taj Mahal, Petra and Ephesus.
