Cruise ships are designed to be as safe as possible, but it is still possible for them to sink. However, in order for this to happen there would need to be a number of different circumstances that come together at the same time. For example, if there was a major storm and the ship's captain didn't steer into it properly then they may have trouble staying afloat. In addition, if the boat has taken on too much water through holes or cracks in its hull then it will eventually capsize and sink. While this seems unlikely given how well these boats are constructed and maintained, there are some instances of cruise ships sinking throughout history that serve as evidence that it can happen!

Cruising from San Diego is continuing to move forward step by step. We were on hand to help celebrate another milestone with Holland America Line's Koningsdam and couldn't be more excited.

In total, between Zuiderdam and Koningsdam, Holland America Line will offer 40 cruises from San Diego between September 2021 through April 2022!

Despite Hawaii being one of the top west coast cruise destinations for decades, many folks we talk with still don't realize that you can take a cruise to Hawaii. Even fewer understand just how amazing of a way it is to explore the culture, food, history, and natural beauty offered by this magical destination. Let's take a look at some of the ways that you can explore Hawaii on a cruise.

One of the biggest challenges with Hawaiian cruises is that unlike other itineraries such as going to Alaska, California Coastal, or Mexican Riviera - there are no international ports anywhere close to Hawaii. As a result, cruise options are relatively limited compared to others. It also means that these cruises are generally more expensive, smaller ships, or longer than your typical cruise.
