From winter 2014 through spring 2015, Holland America Line will have two ships exploring the mysteries and wonders of the Far East.
The 1,432-passenger ms Volendam will sail a series of 14- to 17-day cruises and nonrepeating itineraries, while the 1,404-passenger ms Rotterdam takes an epic 90-day "Passage to the Far East" journey.
All of the cruises feature exotic ports of call with extended and overnight stays at some of Asia's most iconic cities. The longer visits provide travelers ample time to explore the region's extensive collection of historical and notable landmarks.

Departing Dec. 22, 2014, and Feb. 2 and March 16, 2015, the ship calls at ports in Malaysia, Thailand and Myanmar. Guests will enjoy an overnight stay at Singapore and Thilawa (Rangoon), Myanmar, as well as an extended port call at Port Kelang (Kuala Lumpur), Malaysia.
