Holland America Line

Way slower than flying

The Airport Search cruise evaluation team has been on challenge on a deliver for the past two weeks making our first transatlantic voyage from Rotterdam, The Netherlands to New York City.

We’ve been on Holland America Line’s Rotterdam, which is recreating the road’s first actual voyage, which occurred precisely 150 years in the past.

These days, of path, flying from Europe to the US is the way to go. And the adventure, via aircraft, is perhaps 7 hours. If the flight takes plenty longer, contemporary-day vacationers start complaining.

On this journey, although, the crossing has taken 7 days.

It’s constantly exciting to see the view of New York City whilst touchdown at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) or Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).

But early this foggy morning, crusing past the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island is a wholly exceptional, and oddly emotional, revel in.
