Holland America Taster Cruises

Holland America Line’s newest ship Eurodam will operate two four-day and one two-day sailings between Copenhagen, Denmark, and Dover in July 2009.

The first four-day itinerary departs July 2 from Copenhagen to Dover via Oslo.

Along the way, the line’s 2,104-passenger ship will call at Oslo and Amsterdam.

The second four-day cruise departs July 6 and sails round-trip from Dover to Zeebrugge, Cherbourg and St Peter Port in Guernsey.

Eurodam sails a two-day mini-cruise from Dover to Copenhagen, departing on July 10.

Passengers wanting to take a longer holiday can book the voyages in combination with extended cruises to form 12- and 14-day “Collectors’ Voyages”.

A 14-day Copenhagen to Dover voyage departs on June 22 with a repeated call at the Danish capital. Ports of call include Warnemunde (Berlin); Tallinn, an overnight in St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Stockholm, Kiel, Oslo and Amsterdam.

The 12-day Collectors’ Voyage combines the two-day Eurodam sampler cruise departing July 10, and continues on its Copenhagen round-trip journey to Warnemunde, Stockholm, Helsinki, St. Petersburg (overnight), Tallinn and Kiel.

Executive vice president, marketing, sales and guest programs Richard Meadows said: “We understand that some travellers are looking for a quick and relaxing holiday, which is why we developed these shorter, exciting itineraries.

“We’ve put together some fascinating ports, so whether guests book a four-day cruise or a full 14-day Collectors’ Voyage, they’re going to have an unforgettable, premium-cruise experience.”
