Ports of Call
Explore our ports of call, where you can walk, shop, and dine in Caribbean paradises!
Ft. Lauderdale, FL
There is an abundance of things to see and do in the Fort Lauderdale area: visit the newly redesigned Fort Lauderdale Beach and cafes, stroll the historic Riverwalk, shop the luxurious stores on Las Olas Boulevard or venture to the Everglades for an intriguing air boat excursion.
Cruise to Turks and Caicos and experience the sugar-white sand, brilliant blue waters, and the kaleidoscopic sea life that is plentiful in the Caribbean paradise. Without hyperbole, this is one of the world’s most photogenic spots. T&C, as it is sometimes called, is the ultimate fantasy-island destination—the screen saver in all its glorious reality.
Grand Turk, a jewel of an isle that measures just 18 square kilometers (seven square miles), is awesomely rich in natural wonders. Ringed by translucent warm waters teeming with coral and fish, this Turks and Caicos cruise is a bonanza for divers, snorkelers and anglers. Of course you can always simply kick back and just enjoy the view from under a palm tree. Or explore the fascinating history of Turks & Caicos in its capital, Cockburn Town, lined with Bermudan-style buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries. Regardless, your cruise to Turks and Caicos will be relaxing, enjoyable and truly memorable.
Key West, FL
Ernest Hemingway made wild, colorful Key West his home, and you will want to do the same. Home to modern-day adventurers, artists, and poets, the island’s charming Old Town teems with restaurants, bars, and unique shops. Add pristine coral reefs, coconut palms, and a laid-back attitude that is truly contagious, and it’s easy to see why so many visitors to Key West never leave.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas
The Caribbean is full of tropical wonders and natural beauty. But there’s nothing like Half Moon Cay, Holland America Line’s pristine private island paradise in the Bahamas. This island has won Porthole Cruise Magazine’s Best Private Island award 20 consecutive years. When you feel the sugar-white sand on your toes or kayak its crystal lagoon, you’ll understand why cruise travelers love Half Moon Cay, a highlight of Holland America’s Bahamas cruises.
