It’s time for a family reunion, and what better way to make that happen than on a Holland America Line cruise throughout the Caribbean? Bring your parents, grandparents, siblings, kids –whoever is excited for a fun multigenerational cruising adventure.

Hop Aboard a Holland America Line Ship

A handful of Holland America Line’s best ships will be cruising the Caribbean from 2022 to 2023, and these vessels are great for guests of all ages. There’s live music featuring everything from The Rolling Stones’ greatest hits to today’s Billboard Top 100. The dining choices feature options like kid-friendly pizza and adult-focused desserts (including the mouthwatering Jacques Torres Chocolate Souffle). And we certainly can’t forget to mention the Club Hal for kids, the casino for adults, and the Greenhouse Spa & Salon for everyone who needs a little pampering.

Enjoy a Private Island

One of the best perks of booking a Caribbean vacation with Holland America Line is the fact that you get to visit Half Moon Cay, a private island owned by the cruise line. As a matter of fact, this Bahamian Island is so picture-perfect that it’s often voted as the best private island in the world. While on this little slice of paradise, there’s so much to do. Take a glass-bottom boat tour, ride horses on the beach, go snorkeling, and savor lobster rolls from the Lobster Shack. And you can be sure that everyone in your group regardless of age will love this port of call, because who wouldn’t love a private island?

Explore Lesser-Known Caribbean Islands

Certain Caribbean Islands, like Jamaica and Puerto Rico, get all the fame. While Holland America Line visits these popular islands, they also dock at lesser-known locales. For example, many of Holland America’s 2022 and 2023 Caribbean itineraries visit Curaçao, a Dutch Caribbean Island in South America. While there, you can cross the Queen Emma Pontoon Bridge, suntan at Playa Lagoon, and explore the area known as Handelskade. Then, there’s Bonaire, another beautiful island just 50 miles from Curaçao. When you dock at this Caribbean Island, you can spend all your time swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving to your heart’s content. A couple of the longer Caribbean itineraries even make a stop in Puerto Limon, Costa Rica. While docked in this port city, you can say hello to the wildlife at the Tortuguero Canals, explore Cahuita National Park, and go ziplining over a rainforest.

Dine on Delightful Dishes

Each day when you come back from your port of call, you’ll be ready to eat! Every ship offers a variety of dining options, all of which service up delectable plates. The go-to dining spot on all Holland America Line ships is the main dining room, which serves up tasty bites for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you’d like something a little more casual, the burgers from Dive-In and the sweet treats from G Gelato will certainly satisfy your cravings. And on the other end of the spectrum, Nami Sushi and Pinnacle Grill are fantastic for fine dining. Simply put, there’s something for everyone onboard Holland America Line.
