Beyond Carnival Vista Preview Photos

Right in line with our travel plans, the cover photo here shows Carnival Vista ahead of Holland America Line’s ms Eurodam.  After a quick look at Carnival Vista, we go to Rotterdam in advance of the dedication ceremony for Holland America Line’s new ms Koningsdam.  Prior to that historic event, we’ll go back in time to explore the 143-year history of Holland America Line.  Stay tuned for that too.
