January 23: Depart Ft. Lauderdale
There is an abundance of things to see and do in the Ft. Lauderdale area: Visit the newly redesigned Ft. Lauderdale Beach and cafés, stroll the historic Riverwalk, shop the luxurious stores on Las Olas Boulevard or venture to the Everglades for a fascinating air boat excursion.
January 24: Half Moon Cay, Bahamas
Holland America Line’s stunning private island offers everything you need for a day of play in paradise: a 2-mile crescent of perfect beach, an interior lagoon, private beachside cabanas with butler service, showers and misters, and all manner of water sports and activities. Sample shore excursions: Horseback Riding by Land and Sea; Deep-sea or Flats Fishing; Stingray Adventure; AquaTrax Watercraft Adventure.
January 25: At Sea
January 26: Philipsburg, St. Maarten
This Caribbean jewel is the tiniest landmass in the world to be shared by two nations: France and Holland. You’ll be able to experience two cultures in a single day—on the Dutch side: chocolates, cheeses and casinos; on the French side: bistros, boulangeries and boutiques. Beautiful beaches and crystal-clear waters may lure you away from the island’s elegant avenues long enough to experience some of the Caribbean’s most stunning coastline.
January 27: San Juan, Puerto Rico
Massive El Morro Fortress guards Old San Juan, while the benevolent Indian spirit Yuquiyu keeps watch over the entire island from the highest peak in the lush rain forest. You’ll be able to immerse yourself in the island’s beautiful natural environment while soaking in the lively local music and fiery flamenco. Sample shore excursions include the Old San Juan Historic Walking Tour, the El Yunque Rain Forest Drive, and the World Heritage Fortress & Art Museum.
January 28: Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos
Named for the fez-like scarlet blossoms of the cactus that grows here, Grand Turk is a pristine place of simple pleasures. Float dreamily over vibrant coral reefs, dine on sumptuous conch fritters and set your watch to “island time.” This gracious, welcoming Caribbean treasure boasts the third-largest coral reef in the world and remains the Caribbean’s least commercialized island paradise.
