Share The Article

Holland America Cruise lines are getting ready to offer unique itineraries for their spring and end-of-the-year cruises. Part of that lineup includes multiple trips to Los Cabos and different port cities in Baja California Sur, as well as other Mexican beach towns on the Pacific coast. Not all cruises are created equal, however. Below are the cruises travelers can expect this season from Holland America, starting with the most unique.

Solar Eclipse Cruise Around The Pacific — See Los Cabos & Hawaii

The most unique cruise of them all is going to take place in the Spring of 2024 when a solar eclipse is set to take place. This voyage will begin on April 5th, 2024 at the San Diego port, where travelers are set to board the Koningsdam. Onboard, guests will have plenty of entertainment options to keep them busy between ports and the solar eclipse. Be sure to check out the Rolling Stone Rock Room and B.B. King’s Blues Club if you are a music lover, and if you’re feeling lucky, head to the casino.

Be prepared to explore Los Cabos on April 7th. Travelers will be able to enjoy experiences in Cabo ranging from lunch on El Medano beach to a snorkeling excursion at the famous arch. On April 8th, be prepared for a truly unforgettable experience as you witness a Solar Eclipse while at sea. You’ll have one of the most unique vantage points of all for this incredible celestial event as you sail from Cabo to Puerto Vallarta. From there, the trip continues making 4 stops in different Hawaiian islands, only to finally reach port one last time in Vancouver, Canada.

Christmas Day 2023 In Los Cabos

Holland America is going to be making multiple trips to Cabo throughout the year, with trip length and the number of port stops varying. Perhaps one of its most appealing trips to Cabo explores the possibility of spending Christmas Eve in Cabo and New Year’s at sea. This particular voyage takes off from San Diego on December 23, 2023, aboard the Volendam

Travelers on this journey will be able to make reservations to have a Christmas Day lunch at one of the popular Cabo restaurants that overlook the Sea of Cortez. In this particular 12-day trip, travelers will also get a chance to set foot in La Paz and Loreto. If they want to explore the towns more freely without a guide, they can get tips from experts on board before leaving the ship.

Make A Typical Cruise More Unique With Excursions

Travelers who want to take a cruise to Cabo on Holland America cruise lines can do so as early as the end of March 2023. This is arguably the least “unique” of the upcoming trips that these cruise liners are going to make through the Mexican Pacific. It’s a ten-day voyage that’s going to start from the San Diego port aboard the Zaandam cruise ship.

The ship is meant to arrive in Los Cabos on the 27th, and travelers can book unique experiences throughout their only day in the Cabo port. These include diving trips out to the Los Cabos arch or sailing on a pirate ship in search of whales. The end of March in Los Cabos usually brings the last days of the whale-watching season, so it’s the perfect time to be able to spot newborn calves swimming with their mothers in Cabo waters.

From Los Cabos, the ship will set sail for Loretto on the 28th and La Paz on the 29th. In both Baja towns, tourists will be able to book wine-tasting experiences, as well as hiking excursions or guided trips throughout both cities. All of these activities come at an extra cost, but they could make the experience on land more enjoyable. Rather than just aimlessly trying to find your way through these Mexican towns, it can be helpful to have a guide or activity lay out a plan for you.
