In 2013 we went around the world on the Holland America cruise ship Amsterdam. In January, 2019 we are going to do this again with a number of changes to our itinerary which will make this a very different voyage.
Perhaps the most significant route change is the trip through the Suez Canal, across the Mediterranean Ocean, north to Norway and then diagonally back across the Atlantic to Fort Lauderdale where we depart.
While the duration of the voyage is four months, this time we will be starting mid-January and finishing mid-May. Essentially this is a two week later trip. For the trip we will have our same cabin and the same ship as in 2013. We enjoyed both features last time and were fortunate to be able to get the same again.
If you would like to follow along on our trip, please hit the “follow” button on the right side of your screen. The site will then ask for your email address. Fill it in and anytime we post a new entry you will receive it. The posts are usually quite short, with lots of pictures that have been reduced in size to allow for fast downloads and to minimize data consumption. Internet on the ship is very expensive so you communicate in as few words as possible and with lower resolution and sized photos.
We welcome your comments at any time. Space for comments may be found at the bottom of the posts. Enjoy!
