HAL's Canada/New England has some cruises that feature Bermuda

HAL's Canada/New England has some cruises that feature Bermuda
Holland America Line will operate 39 Canada/New England cruises this year, down from 48 last year in what was the line's most extensive program, but offering a new twist with three nights in Bermuda on several sailings between Boston and Québec City.

Eurodam, Maasdam and Veendam return to the region with seven- to 15-day departures from Boston, New York, Montréal and Fort Lauderdale. 

Maasdam begins the season with a 15-day northbound cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Montréal departing May 1 that includes scenic cruising in the Saguenay Fjord. From May 16 through the Oct. 10 departure, Maasdam will operate 22 seven-day sailings between Montréal and Boston, featuring scenic cruising in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and on the St. Lawrence River.

Maasdam wraps the season with a 13-day coastal sailing departing Oct. 17 from Montréal to Fort Lauderdale. Or, a 10-day option ends in New York.

Veendam's season opens with a 14-day 'Bermuda and Canada/New England Collectors’ Voyage' departing Boston May 9. Highlights include three nights at Hamilton, Bermuda, and an overnight at Québec City. This itinerary will be offered in June and July, as well as the reverse route from Québec City to Boston in May and June.

From May 16 through the Oct. 10 departure, Veendam sails 12 seven-day cruises between Québec City and Boston. Included are scenic cruising in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and an overnight at Québec City.

For seven-day Maasdam and Veendam itineraries, back-to-back sailings on the same ship can be combined for a 14-day round-trip Collectors’ Voyage, with some ports repeated.

During the height of the fall foliage season, in September and October, Eurodam will sail a 10-day cruise between New York and Québec City, and a 14-day cruise from Québec City to Fort Lauderdale. Both itineraries include scenic cruising in Saguenay Fjord and an overnight at Québec City.

Veendam kicks off September with a seven-day 'Historic Coasts' round-trip Boston cruise departing Aug. 29. Destinations are Portland, Maine, Saint John, New Brunswick; and Halifax and Sydney, Nova Scotia. Maasdam and Veendam also continue with seven-day fall foliage cruises into October.

Fares begin at $699 per person, double occupancy.

In August 2013, when HAL announced its 2014 Canada/New England program, fares started at $799.
