New pole-to-pole cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Antarctica is offered by Holland America Line.

It’s simpler than it sounds to travel to Antarctica and above the Arctic Circle in the same trip. The rest will be handled by Holland America Line; all you need to do is get to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

In 2025, the cruise company will depart from Florida on a new 133-day Grand Voyage: Pole-to-Pole, travelling to far-flung locations from the South to the North and back again, Holland America announced on Thursday.

It will be the first time the line sails two trips longer than 120 days at once. The cruise will call at 68 ports in 28 nations and coincide with the 124-day Grand World Voyage.

When is the Grand Voyage: Pole-to-Pole sailing on Holland America?

The voyage will be made on the line’s Volendam ship from January 25 to June 7, 2025.

The ship will then cross the Atlantic Ocean to visit Africa and Europe, where it will join the Grand World Voyage in Barcelona, Spain, and stay overnight with celebrations to mark the occasion. After visiting the Falkland Islands and continuing to explore South America, including the Amazon River, passengers will then visit Africa.

Portugal, France, Norway’s North Cape, which is above the Arctic Circle, Iceland, Greenland, and other places will be on the remaining itinerary.

“I always like to say it’s a way to get to these regions by only having to take a domestic flight because you just fly to Fort Lauderdale, and the world’s at your doorstep,” said Grigsby.
