7 Puerto Vallarta
Puerto Vallarta
The small, quaint fishing community of Puerto Vallarta, with its cobblestoned streets that seemed to climb straight up to the jungle behind it, was recognized as a city of Mexico in 1918 but was largely unknown to the rest of the world. But in 1963, during the filming of John Huston's "Night of the Iguana," the sleepy town was invaded by reporters hoping to catch a glimpse of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, who were carrying on their illicit love affair -- and a tourist industry was born.

16 Oranjestad, Aruba
Oranjestad, Aruba
Being one of the Dutch Antilles, Aruba still retains its Dutch charm. You will notice this when you see the many windmills that are to be found in the island. Aruba is characterised by fine beaches, sapphire blue waters, almost year-round sunshine and exotic cactus. In the capital Oranjestad, admire the pastel coloured houses and the palm-lined streets. Then go snorkelling and discover the incredible coral formation and tropical fish. Other highlights include gold mine ruins in the countryside, Guadirikiri Caves and the fascinating natural limestone bridge. If you like shopping, you’ll love Aruba and its fabulous shops and outdoor markets.
17 Willemstad, Curacao
Willemstad, Curacao
Curacao is one of the Dutch Antilles. This is reflected in the Dutch cuisine served in the island’s restaurants and in the Dutch-style houses of the capital Willemstad. Here shopping is superb…the ‘Floating Market’ alongside the canal is well worth checking out. You will find anything from tropical fruits and vegetables to local handicrafts. Visit the dramatic Hato Caves, a series of grottos with underground waterfalls and ancient Indian petroglyphs, or explore the spectacular Curacao Sea Aquarium, where you will see around 400 exotic species of marine life. Dive in the sapphire blue waters near the beautiful coral reef and experience feeding turtles and stingrays. Then discover Curacao’s Ostrich Farm, where you will see how the ostrich develops from an egg to the largest bird in the world. Before you leave the island, you must try the famous Curacao’s fruity liqueur.
18-19 At Sea
20 Fort Lauderdale
Fort Lauderdale
Fort Lauderdale is the sunny city set in Southern Florida. Often called the ‘Venice of America’ due to its expansive canal system and beautiful river fronts. Fort Lauderdale is well known for its beaches, arts, shopping and year round tropical climate. Chosen by many as their favourite holiday destination, it is certainly an excellent place to start or end your cruise!

Well first of all great trip. Ship in places needs attention, I hear the ship is going in for refit after this trip. Food very good. The staff go the extra mile to make sure every thing is ok no thing is too much trouble . Felt the ship a very dress down compared to other ships . The resturant very good. The pinnacles resturant good but not a big menu, but food excellent . Shopping on board poor unless you need a new watch. Drinks are expensive. As tours are we did quite a few over ten, but where possible shared a taxi which brought the cost down. Entertainment was poor not the showS that one expects, though the in house dancers where excellent better than some of the entertainers that are brought on board ..on the day we disembarked as our flight was early we took our own cases which was a hassle ,would have thought Holland America Could have let couple stewards to help ..

We were updated from an inside stateroom to a Deck Stateroom which really made a difference to the exercise we did avoiding weight gain and enjoying the fresh air. Easy access was great. The seas were calm which made for a beautiful cruise. The side trips were very interesting. Overall very high marks for Holland America, once again! Thank you.
