Holland America Line’s Maasdam will sail a new 45-day “Atlantic Adventurer” voyage roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale to the Caribbean, Europe and northern Africa. The cruise departs Oct. 28, 2011 and heads to the Mediterranean at a less crowded time of the year.

The voyage first calls at Tortola and St. Maarten before setting off across the Atlantic. After several days at sea, the ship stops at Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, Santa Cruz on La Palma and Arrecife on Lanzarote. She then visits Casablanca, Morocco; Gibraltar; Almeria, Spain, which is near Granada, home to the Alhambra; Barcelona for an overnight; and Palma de Mallorca. The ship then calls at Civitavecchia, Sorrento, Naples Palermo and Cagliari, Italy. The ship then returns to Morocco and Spain, calling at Tangier and Cadiz (Seville), beforeHolland America Line's MS Maasdam moored in Hu... Portimao and an overnight at Lisbon, Portugal. Following a stop at Funchal, with an overnight at Madeira, the ship heads home, visiting Half Moon Cay, the line’s private Bahamian island.

The “Atlantic Adventurer” itinerary can be broken into two segments — a 23-day itinerary that starts at Fort Lauderdale and disembarks at Civitavecchia (Rome) Nov. 20, and a 22-day voyage from Civitavecchia to Fort Lauderdale, concluding Dec. 12.

Rates for the full voyage start at US$4,199 per person, double occupancy. This is a Cruise People group sailing. Fares for the segments start at $2,299 for the 23-day sailing and $1,999 for the 22-day itinerary. For more information, call The Cruise People at 1-800-961-5536.
