After over two years, cruising is officially back in Canada.
Holland America’s Koningsdam arrived in Victoria on Saturday, marking the first cruise ship visit to the port in 905 days.
On Sunday, the ship ended its seven-night cruise in Vancouver, kicking off the cruising season for that port as well.
In 2022, six Holland America ships will make 45 calls to Victoria total, and 76 sailings will begin or end in Vancouver.
The only year-round Hawaii-based ship, Pride of America, resumed sailings from Honolulu on Saturday.
The Norwegian Cruise Line vessel is the only major U.S. flagged cruise ship, and therefore is able to sail around Hawaii without calling on a foreign country.
During the initial restart, the ship will be operating at a reduced capacity with both passengers and crew.
Because of that, some restaurants will not be open, including Moderno and Teppanyaki, as well as the Skyline main dining room for breakfast and lunch.
After two years, P&O Cruises Australia’s Pacific Explorer will be returning to Sydney.

She has been off the coast of Cyprus with sister ships Pacific Encounter and Adventure during the cruise suspension.
P&O Cruises Australia’s first passenger sailing since the pandemic is scheduled for May 31 — a four-night roundtrip Sydney voyage with a stop in Brisbane.
