Experience A Sailing Legacy – Explore The Baltic On Holland America Line

Sail to St. Petersburg with the “Best Cruise Line for Europe”

Seattle,WA (February 24, 2005) — For Holland America Line, with more than a 130 years of sailing experience, Europe isn’t just another destination, it’s home. Intriguing 10-day “Gems of the Baltic,” 12-day “Treasures of Scandinavia and Russia,” and a 12-day “Vikings & Czars” itinerary showcases the line’s expertise.

Cruise the Baltic July through September this summer with the leader in premium cruising and discover the exciting possibilities. Every Baltic cruise provides two days in St. Petersburg for a night at the opera or a day trip to Moscow. Classic luxury aboard the 1,848-passenger Vista-class, ms Westerdam and the elegant 1,316-passenger flagship, ms Rotterdam heightens every pleasure.

“Our Baltic cruises are special because they reflect who we are,” stated Richard D. Meadows, CTC, senior vice president, marketing and sales. “Holland America Line’s history encompasses the traveler’s spirit. Today, our cruise offerings and sailing heritage provoke exciting new adventures in timeless style for modern-day voyagers. And for cruisers seeking and celebrating their roots, our European cruises can be more than a vacation, we make it a journey home,” promised Meadows.

10-day “Gems of the Baltic” Cruises European culture reached its zenith in the North despite waves of immigration, World Wars and an Iron curtain. Tallinn in Estonia sports medieval spires and an onion-domed cathedral. An overnight in St. Petersburg allows time to soak up centuries of artistic accomplishment at the Hermitage or to explore the Soviet citadel—Moscow’s Kremlin. Westerdam cruises roundtrip from merry Copenhagen on July 30, August 9, 19, 29 or September 9, 2005, the itinerary also visits Helsinki in Finland, Stockholm and Visby in Sweden, and Warnemünde, Germany.

12-day “Treasures of Scandinavia & Russia” This well-balanced vacation combines the man-made glories of great Northern cities with the spectacular natural beauty of Norway’s Fjords—the sights along the sparkling Oslofjord will fill a dozen digital memory cards. With an overnight stay in St. Petersburg, guests will experience dancing fountains, ornate palaces and a timeless culture in transition. Rotterdam sails from Copenhagen to Rotterdam on July 2 and 26, 2005. A reverse 12-day itinerary, the line’s “Vikings & Czars” cruise sails from Rotterdam to Copenhagen July 14 and August 7, 2005.

“The Best Cruise Line for Europe”Travel Weekly magazine hails Holland America Line as the best choice for cruising Europe. Elegant, less crowded ships carry fewer guests than any other major line and offer larger staterooms and more verandahs. The Explorations Café powered by The New York Times and the Explorations Speaker Seriesprovide insights and background into ports of call. Award-winning Medallion shore excursions can be booked early online and offer unique events and experiences, while a variety of pre- or post-cruise packages create a complete European experience.

Both the Rotterdam and Westerdam boast all Signature of Excellence™ product enhancements from the premium line. Amenities include everything from a choice of fine dining venues—both elegant and casual—to multiple swimming and soaking pools and a lavish Greenhouse Spa and fitness center. Comfortable plush robes, towels and bedding and fresh flowers in deluxe staterooms complement lively casinos, spectacular shows and all day entertainment featuring the innovative Culinary Arts Center. Holland America Line’s luxurious, spacious ships offer all the comforts and conveniences demanded by today’s sophisticated traveler including wi-fi hot spots.

Value is another benefit of touring Europe with Holland America Line. Cruise guests save versus land-based vacations with most everything included and they beat the exchange rate against the Euro by paying for everything in U.S. Dollars. And for those purchases made ashore, a convenient onboard Foreign Exchange Service is available. Cruise fares start at USD$1,799 per person, double occupancy for a 10-day cruise.
