Holland America Line has opened bookings for its 2025-26 season in Australia and New Zealand.

The cruise line will offer a variety of 14-day itineraries aboard its Noordam ship between November 2025 and March 2026. All of the voyages either sail roundtrip from Sydney or transit between Sydney and Auckland.

Guests who want to extend their trip can also book a “Collectors Voyage,” which combines several non-repeating itineraries to keep guests on the water for 28 to 50 total days.

“Australia and New Zealand are excellent options for cruisers looking for global destinations, iconic cities and wild wonders,” says Beth Bodensteiner, Holland America Line’s chief commercial officer. “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, or they can see wildlife like penguins and kangaroos while exploring South Australia.”

Highlights of the season include the “New Zealand Discovery” cruise, which visits all New Zealand ports like Waitangi, Gisborne and Wellington. The “Australia and New Zealand” trip, meanwhile, includes port calls in Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand.

Once onboard, guests will be able to enjoy fresh fish and local fare from Down Under—such as Sydney rock oysters and Tasmanian meat pies—thanks to Holland America Line’s global fresh fish program.

Guests who book select 2025-26 Australia and New Zealand cruises with a Have It All package can enjoy extra perks, such as free upgrades and free prepaid crew gratuity. The early booking promo is available for a limited time.
