With their Culinary Arts Centers, exceptional art collections and full-service spas, Holland America Line voyages offer more than just a holiday, as each cruise to the Caribbean proves. Stopovers in a thoughtfully curated selection of ports offer a wealth of specially crafted activities. You might explore Mayan ruins in Guatemala, discover the volcanic landscape of Martinique or visit local artists on St. Maarten. Holland America guests also enjoy privileged access to the cruise line's private island, Half Moon Cay. Ninety-six percent of the island has been left untouched, which means you can feed stingrays in a secluded cove or horseback ride on a deserted beach. Of course, there are plenty of resort pleasures too, including air-conditioned beach cabanas and the Half Moon Lagoon Aqua Park.
