14 night cruise sailing from Tokyo (Yokohama) aboard the Noordam
Visit Shimizu, Kobe, Sasebo, Japan, Dalian, Shanghai, Xiamen and Hong Kong, China.


A small fishing village until the arrival of Commodore Perry in 1853, today Yokohama is Japan's largest city. Stroll among the gardens, shrines and temples of Kamakura, the Shogun capital from AD 1192 – 1333; visit Hakone National Park for spectacular views of Mt. Fuji; and shop in Tokyo's legendary Ginza shopping district--virtually unequalled for glitz, glamour and good deals. Sample shore excursions: Meiji Shrine & Japanese Cultural Experience; Old Town Tokyo; Yokohama by Night.


A thriving harbor town for centuries, Shimizu is best known for its incredible scenic beauty. Take an excursion to Miho no Matsubara and enjoy stunning views of Mount Fuji and expansive black sand beaches; stroll through the graceful gardens and unique art installations of Tokachi Millennium Forest; and visit Kongofukuji Temple, first built by Kobo-daishi in 822 and rebuilt from 1662.


This cosmopolitan port city is known for more than just its world-famous Kobe beef. Discover the boutiques and markets of the Motomashi and Kokashita districts, explore the Fashion Museum or venture out to the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge-the longest suspension bridge in the world. In the Kitano district, tour stately injikan, western-style Victorian and Gothic homes, or enjoy a glass of sake from one of Kobe's famed wineries.


A key northern port, Dalian is small by Chinese standards, numbering only about five million people, but it's big on beaches, seafood, apples and exquisite glassware in every conceivable shape and color. Sample shore excursions: Dalian Half-day Tour; Dalian Full-day Tour.


Neon pulses, soaring skyscrapers pierce the sky, construction never stops in Shanghai's race to modernity. Still, you can feel the city's silk past in the peaceful Yu Gardens, its history as a financial powerhouse in the international banks along The Bund.

Hong Kong

Can any city in the world top Hong Kong's phenomenal energy? Judge for yourself as you ride the tram to the top of Victoria Peak, join the surge into countless markets and watch the hardworking world of Aberdeen's fishing junks. Sample shore excursions: Morning Tai Chi & Cooking Tour; Hong Kong Island City Sightseeing; Explore Lantau Island & Monastery.

Holland America Line

Since the late 1800’s, Holland America Line has shown a strong commitment to excellence, luxury and comfort in cruising. With a rich history in luxury sea travel, Holland America continues to be the preferred choice for discerning travellers. With 15 spacious, mid-sized ships featuring art collections, five-star dining and large, comfortable staterooms with spacious verandas, there’s a touch of elegance in everything about Holland America cruises.

Onboard, you will find an array of fine dining options, from casual Italian to five course dinners in the stunning two-tier main dining room. There are plenty of activities to entertain any guest, ranging from cooking demonstrations by award-winning chefs, or learning how to make a photo journal in a digital workshop, to simply pampering yourself in the spa and salon. There are also kids-only hangouts, nightclubs, an internet-connected coffeehouse and nightly live entertainment which make this a great option for family cruising.

Holland America cruises carry passengers to destinations worldwide, including Asia, Alaska, Australia, Canada, Caribbean, Bermuda, Europe, Hawaii, Mexico, the Panama Canal and South America, visiting more than 320 ports of call. The ships come in two varieties, larger vessels, best suited to families with children, and the smaller ships for experienced and repeat patrons.


Onboard Holland America Line cruises, you can enjoy exquisite dining across a range of venues. Have a casual bite pool-side, or indulge in a formal five-course meal in the classic main Dining Room. Whatever you choose, it promises to be a truly memorable dining experience, as Master Chef Rudi Sodamin and his culinary experts work to create signature dishes using only the freshest produce and the highest quality meats and seafood available. Special dietary needs, such as vegetarian, diabetic or gluten-free meals can be easily accommodated as meals are prepared daily.


All of Holland America’s ships offer a variety of youth and teen activities and facilities for kids ranging from three to 17 years. All Club HAL® activities are supervised by permanent, full-time staff, and are designed to be kid friendly and age appropriate. Kids from three to seven can go on pirate treasure hunts, participate in arts and crafts and pajama parties. Tweens, aged eight to 12, can have karaoke parties and Xbox and Wii tournaments. The Loft and The Oasis is for teens aged 13 to 17, and offers them mocktail classes, sports competitions and teen only nightclub events.
