Each year, approximately 325,000 people visit Alaska onboard a Holland America cruise ship. To thank them for their positive economic impact on the state, the Commissioner of the Department of Commerce and Economic Development presented a month ago a 2012 Governor’s North Star Award for International Excellence in Tourism to the line.
What has Holland America done in the Great Land? To mention a few things, the line offers cultural-exchange programs during their cruises, promotes Alaska as a premier destination, and provides direct economic impact on Alaska’s local economy, employing 1,100 locally based employees and partnering with 540 local businesses.
Way to go, Holland America!
This year, the cruise line is offering 130 cruises to Alaska. Next year, they plan on having 136 cruises. Would you like to sail onboard a Holland America ship, or experience one of their cruisetours? Call us at 1-800-565-2784 to speak with a Cruise Specialist about our Holland America offers.
