Holland America Line has put its 2025-2026 Australia and New Zealand cruises on sale.

The line’s 1,924-passenger Noordam will operate 14-night cruises from November 2025 to March 2026, sailing roundtrip from Sydney, or between Sydney and Auckland.

The itineraries include the ‘Australia and New Zealand’ voyage from Sydney which features stops in Melbourne, Hobart, Tauranga, Napier and Port Chalmers (Dunedin).

The ‘New Zealand Discovery’ itinerary calls in Auckland, Waitangi, Tauranga, Gisborne, Napier, Wellington, Lyttelton (Christchurch) and Port Chalmers (Dunedin), while the ‘South Australia Discovery Holiday’ visits Melbourne, Phillip Island, Eden, Adelaide, Penneshaw, Burnie, Port Arthur and Hobart.

HAL is also offering five Collectors’ Voyages, which combine back-to-back cruises on Noordam. These range from 28 to 50 days and merge Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific itineraries.

Director Sales & Marketing Karen Farndell said: “Australia and New Zealand are ideal options for travellers looking for global destinations, iconic cities and wild wonders.

“We craft our cruises to showcase the best of each region. With these voyages, guests can immerse themselves in New Zealand in a port-intensive itinerary that also features scenic cruising through Milford Sound.”
