With 28 cruises, 12 different itineraries and five ships, Holland America Line introduced its most extensive collection of Panama Canal cruises in 2007. The line says it will offer New York departures, new February full transit crossings and a new port of call, Puerto Chiapas, on Mexico's Pacific coastline. Cruises will range from 10-day Sunfarer and 14- to 22-day full transit crossings to a new 23-day Pan-America and Panama Canal cruise. From January through April and September through December, a full canal transit will be operated by the Amsterdam, Ryndam, Volendam, Noordam and Zuiderdam. Clients might choose from 11 different itineraries ranging from 14 to 22 days departing from New York, Ft. Lauderdale, Tampa, Vancouver, Seattle, Los Angeles and San Diego. Holland America Line's newest ship, the Noordam, will make its first Panama Canal crossings in spring and fall. Flagship Amsterdam will also make a November full transit of the Panama Canal.
