					Departing Friday 22nd July 2011 for 10 days / 9 nights

Join us on this amazing cruise at a great price! We travel aboard Holland America’s stunning ms Ryndam on an
adventure to Norway. The grandly proportioned, ms Ryndam offers an onboard experience defined by spacious
comfort, and the latest Signature of Excellence features and amenities. Staterooms offer a generous amount of
personal space and many feature commanding ocean views with private verandahs. With a Dutch worldwide
exploration theme, the decor of ms Ryndam features art and artifacts from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. At the
heart of ms Ryndam a three-story atrium features a monumental fountain created by sculptor Gilbert Lebigre in
Pietrasanta, Italy. Guests aboard this spacious ship encounter elegance at every turn - from a string quartet
serenade in the splendid Rotterdam Dining Room to the two-deck Vermeer Show Lounge. Luxuriously appointed
and uniquely refined, Holland America Line’s ms Ryndam ensures you the ultimate onboard experien ce with her
graceful combination of classic cruise ship features, state-of-the-art amenities, and sophisticated ambiance.

Norway, The "Land of the Midnight Sun" offers a truly unique experience. Norwegians view their scrub -covered
islands, snow-crested peaks, and glacier-born fjords as symbols of a wilderness culture. The majestic scenery
inspired the symphonies of Grieg, the plays of Ibsen, and the paintings of Munch. The landscape has also shaped
the Norwegians' view of themselves as pastoral dwellers in one of the world's most splendid countrysides.

The name Norway (in Norwegian, Norge or Noreg) is derived from Norvegr, meaning "the way to the north." The
Vikings used the term more than 1,000 years ago to describe the shipping route along the west coast o f Norway.
Norwegians have been seafarers since the dawn of history, so it seems natural for the country to have a nautical
name.
