We are all scrambling to pack our bags and get all of our errands done. But we’ve had a chance to work up a schedule of events for the cruise.
This is what we call a first draft: Garrison will always have more ideas as we sail. We will have this in print for you in your cabins when you board the Ryndam. And every day you will get Holland America’s Daily Schedule, which is the one to work from as you plan each day!

Holland America offers a wide variety of excursion packages. These can be the most efficient and easiest way to experience the ports we are visiting. While run by independent operators, Holland America provides a convenient gateway to excursion operators with proven track records. You may, of course, choose to get off the ship and explore on your own. Operators may offer excursions on shore.
Holland America provides a complete excursion booking service. They have added unique excursions not available on other cruises.
