From next year, Holland America Line
will offer a number of luxury sailings around north Europe.
British passengers will have the opportunity to travel aboard the new ms Eurodam, between Denmark and Dover in July 2009.
The cruise line will offer one two-day itinerary and two four-day sailings, which are said to be for passengers with "less time on their hands".
Richard D Meadows, executive vice president of marketing, sales and guest programmes, explained: "We understand that some travellers are looking for a quick and relaxing holiday, which is why we developed these shorter, exciting itineraries."
Whatever length of voyage passengers choose, they are guaranteed to have an unforgettable premium cruise experience, he added.
In related news, Holland America Line recently announced that the ms Veendam will embark on a number of South America sailings from 2009, taking in countries such as Chile, Ecuador and Peru.
