After an absence of 2.5 years, Holland America Line will sail its first voyages to Japan in the coming months.
After visiting Australia and New Zealand, HAL will send Westerdam to Japan early the next year. The ship will begin its Asian season on 3rd February following a dry dock in Singapore in January.
Last month, Japan relaxed its restrictions on cruising. From Singapore or Yokohama, Westerdam will travel back and forth between the two cities.
You can combine cruises, which last 11 to 14 days, to make one-of-a-kind Collectors’ Voyages. Visitors will be able to travel on five different itineraries that include overnight stops in Singapore, Kobe, Osaka, and Phuket, as well as Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, Thailand, and Malaysia.
As Westerdam redeploys for its Alaska season, the season will come to a close with a 14-day North Pacific Crossing from Yokohama to Seattle, departing 24th April.
“We’re grateful for the work that the Japanese authorities have done to allow for a return to cruising,” said HAL president Gus Antorcha.
“Holland America Line’s guests love longer voyages to unique parts of the world, and we’ll be sailing to some incredible locations as our season in Japan and the rest of Asia begins.”
HAL’s voyage lookup tool will detail any particular health protocols for each departure in advance.
