Next year’s Friendship Force Festival at Sea, on-board Holland America's beautiful Rotterdam ship, starts and ends in Amsterdam. For two weeks we will sail to multiple ports in Norway, Iceland, and Scotland. As always, we offer our very own Friendship Force workshops and social events on a Northern European route that is sure to be enchanting.
