ALL ABOUT THE HOLLAND AMERICA
CRUISING EXPERIENCE

HAL-artwork

HALF MOON CAY, BAHAMAS
Sunday, November 4

Holland America Line's pristine private island offers everything you need for a day of play in paradise: a two-mile crescent of perfect beach; an interior lagoon; private beachside cabanas with showers, misters, and butlers; watersports and activities, including a children's aqua park, nature hikes, and a personal watercraft course. In spite of HAL's use of 2% of this 1,700-acre island, it is so pristine and unspoiled that it has been designated a Wild Bird Reserve by the Bahamian National Trust.

ORANJESTAD, ARUBA
Tuesday, November 6

A Dutch jewel with a tropical touch. In Oranjestad, Aruba's capital, explore the colorful floating market and Nassaustraat, brimming with quaint shops. Head for the beach where water sports abound: snorkeling, rides on glass bottom boats and submarines. Or venture into the countryside to see the haunts of the huge green parakeet, the unique rock gardens of Casi Bari, the curious divi divi tree, forever bending in the tradewind breezes.

WILLEMSTAD, CURAÇAO
Wednesday, November 7

An isle of Dutch treats with the climate of coastal Venezuela? It's none other than Curacao, with Amsterdam-style gabled storybook houses in the Punda section, duty-free Delftware always on sale, and the famous Curacao orange-flavored liqueur that now also comes in blue (surely a sign of the times!).

PANAMA CANAL
Friday, November 9

Nearly every hard-won mile carved through the jungle here carries a story — of rivers dammed, gigantic lakes dug; of malaria, misery, and miraculous powers of will.

PUERTO LIMÓN (SAN JOSÉ),
COSTA RICA
Saturday, November 10

From Costa Rica's Caribbean coast go in search of iridescent blue morpho butterflies, sloths, turtle nesting grounds and wise old shamans. Explore the capital city of San Jose, where museums beckon and markets burst with luscious local tastes — mangoes, bananas, pineapples, papayas. Sample shore excursions: Sloth Sanctuary & Canoe Adventure; The Tortuguero Canals; San José Town & Country; Nature Walk at the Shaman's Land; The Old Banana Route Jungle Train
