Luxury on the High Seas

As befitting a once-in-a-lifetime experience like this, as you sail out of Civitavecchia, in Rome, the Nieuw Amsterdam wraps you in an embrace of old world charm and takes you back to a time when ocean travel was the height of glamour. The ship is one of Holland America’s ‘signature class’ vessels and offers a superlative experience in terms of both accommodation and on-board facilities. You can select your accommodation from suites or staterooms and the magnificent interiors of the vessel are adorned with stunning artworks valued at $3 million. Along with extensive on-board wellness facilities, there’s a superb range of fine dining choices at your disposal, along with a packed schedule of events, classes, shore excursions and a programme of diverse musical performances.

The Holland America line’s tagline is ‘savour the journey’ and, as you explore the delightful Mediterranean on this leg of your journey, that’s exactly what you’ll be invited to do.
