Begin your tropical journey in sunny Ft. Lauderdale Florida where you will board the Holland America Westerdam!

On board you will enjoy a beautiful spacious cabin with service and amenities to meet your every need.

The first stop will be at Holland America’s exclusive private island, Half Moon Cay! Choose from dozens of exciting activities, from kayaking, to parasailing, personal watercraft, hiking, horseback riding, snorkeling, and more! Or simply enjoy relaxing in the sun along a beautiful groomed beach.

Your next stop in is the exotic island of Grand Turk. Named for the fez-like scarlet blossoms of the cactus that grows here, Grand Turk is a pristine place of simple pleasures. Float dreamily over vibrant coral reefs, dine on conch fritters, set your watch to "island time." Sample shore excursions: 4-wheel-drive Safari; Horseback Beach Ride & Swim; Dune Buggy Safari, Hop-on Hop-off Island Tour, scuba, snorkeling, hiking, biking, and sport fishing.

After Grand Turk, enjoy a relaxing day at sea by the pool while traveling to the next port of call, the island of Grand Cayman! Crystalline waters, snorkeling with tame stingrays, civilian submarines: This duty-free port has it all, plus Seven Mile Beach and a charming turtle farm. Sample shore excursions: Stingray City Cruise & Island Drive; Reef & Wreck Snorkel by Boat; Scuba Adventure; Nautilus One Semi-submarine, and a city shopping tour.

Next stop, Cozumel! Once the destination of Mayan women paying homage to Ixchel, Mayan goddess of fertility; today ranked among the world's premier dive spots. Just a ferry ride away: the Mayan ruins of Tulum, spectacularly sited on the sea cliffs. Sample shore excursions: Rock Climbing Adventure; Mayan Ruins of Tulum; Snorkel at Chankanaab National Park, pristine beaches, and unique shopping.

Cap off your exotic adventure with one more relaxing day at sea while returning to Ft. Lauderdale. Enjoy the Culinary Arts Center where guest chefs demonstrate how to make gourmet entrees, or check out the world class work out facility for Pilates, yoga, or spinning class.
