Cruise To The Land Down Under With Holland America Line

Holland America Line is transporting cruisers to the iconic sites and natural wonders of Australia and New Zealand with its new 2025-2026 itineraries.

From November 2025 to March 2026, guests dreaming of a cruise holiday to the Land Down Under can experience the vibrant cities and captivating scenery of this region for themselves with the cruise line’s new Australia and New Zealand season- showcasing a tapestry of diverse landscapes and unique cultures to explore.

The exceptional 14-day itineraries onboard Noordam allow travellers to seamlessly experience the best of these two countries, all while experiencing Holland America Line’s award-winning service and authentic programming. Additionally, new Collectors’ Voyages will combine a two-week cruise with an epic Legendary Voyage to the South Pacific to create a longer holiday lasting up to 50 days, travelling across several cruising regions.

“Australia and New Zealand are excellent options for cruisers looking for global destinations, iconic cities and wild wonders. We craft our cruises to showcase the best of each region. With these voyages, guests can immerse themselves in New Zealand in a port-intensive itinerary that also features scenic cruising through Milford Sound, or they can see wildlife like penguins and kangaroos while exploring South Australia.”

Beth Bodensteiner, Holland America Line’s Chief Commercial Officer

Holland America Line’s Australia and New Zealand voyages sail roundtrip from Sydney, Australia, or between Sydney and Auckland, New Zealand- all onboard Noordam. All New Zealand itineraries will also include scenic cruising in the stunning Milford Sound, located within Fiordland National Park.
