Holland America Christmas and New Year cruises 2017-2018
The shortest and most cheap HAL cruise deals over Christmas and New Year’s Eve are on round-trip itineraries to Caribbean on departures from Florida (mainly from Fort Lauderdale, and also from Tampa). Because the Holland America Line is a brand from the Carnival family, virtually all HAL cruises to the Caribbean over the Holidays visit the Carnival Corporation’s private island in The Bahamas – Half Moon Cay. An exclusive port of call and a very special destination by itself, this is probably the world’s most famous and cheap cruise vacation resort where only Carnival and HAL ships are allowed to dock (it’s actually a tender port).
The list of HAL’s other top special Christmas New Year cruise offers as destinations includes Europe, Asia, Australia and South America. These destinations are usually operated with longer itineraries at higher, but still very good prices.
