During the summer, Amsterdam sails around Alaska; during the winter, she makes grand voyages around Asia, Australia/New Zealand & South Pacific. She also sails an around-the-world grand voyage round-trip from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Fuel consumption of 140 tons (39,500 gallons) of fuel per day at 21 knots speed.
