Holland America Line has opened bookings for the European 2022 season in Rotterdam, Nieuw Statendam, Westerdam and Volendam.
The itineraries range from April to October from seven to 21 days.
According to a press release, the four ships will sail dozens of European routes and explore the Baltic Sea, British Isles, French and Spanish rivers, Iberian Peninsula, the Mediterranean Sea and Northern Europe including Iceland, Greenland, Norway and the North Cape.
Ports of call are Dublin, Istanbul, Le Havre (Paris), New York, Reykjavik, South Queensferry (Edinburgh), St. Petersburg, Stockholm, Malta, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Rotterdam and Venice.
During the season, the ships depart from eight cities: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Barcelona, Boston, Civitavecchia (Rome), Venice, Copenhagen and Piraeus (Athens).
The Westerdam will sail the entire 2022 European season in the Mediterranean on cruises from Venice and between Barcelona, Venice, Civitavecchia (Rome) and Piraeus (Athens), according to the cruise line.
The Rotterdam will start a historic transatlantic sailing on October 15, 2022 for the 150th anniversary.

The cruise line added that many of the cruises can be expanded to include Collectors’ Voyages or longer voyages that are anywhere from 14 to 35 days, combining non-repetitive, consecutive itineraries, allowing guests to visit more ports and spend additional time growing centuries discover art, history and culture.
