Holland America adds more departures to Mexico for 2016-17 season

TORONTO — Holland America Line is headed straight to Mexico, where it is strengthening its presence for the 2016-17 season by increasing departures and returning a larger Vista-class ship.

From October 2016 through February 2017, the 1,916-guest ms Westerdam will sail a series of 13 seven-day cruises roundtrip from San Diego, California, including two special holiday departures in December. To kick off the season, the ship will depart from Vancouver on Oct. 18 on an 11-day itinerary that visits Santa Barbara, Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta.

For the remainder of the season, Westerdam will sail a series of 13 seven-day Mexican Riviera cruises, sailing roundtrip from San Diego through Feb. 7, 2017. The itinerary calls at Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta. Three days at sea allow plenty of time to relax and enjoy amenities onboard.

“We’re looking forward to the 2016-17 Mexico cruise season, and with increased sailings and a larger ship we’ll have the opportunity to show more of our guests what makes Mexico such a vibrant destination,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “Mexico has it all, and with convenient roundtrip San Diego cruises, we know that these itineraries are going to attract a lot of cruisers looking for a unique warm-weather vacation.”
