Native approach to cruising with Holland America

Date Posted: 10 Jun 2008
Category:
Holland America Line is looking to offer its passengers an in depth experience on its 2008 Alaskan cruises by means of Alaskan Travel Guides.

Created in conjunction with the Alaska Native Heritage Centre, the guides will sail onboard Holland America Line vessels this year and will provide passengers with information on their surroundings from local experts.

Holidaymakers will be able to learn about local culture, history and art in addition to flora and fauna from the guides, who will give a number of presentations throughout the cruise on subjects from the gold rush to glaciers.

"Our guests visiting Glacier Bay will enjoy having an Alaska native guide on board the full cruise to provide another perspective on the land they're visiting," Richard D Meadows, executive vice-president of marketing, sales and guest relations, observed.

Travellers wishing to take home an original souvenir can also purchase a piece of artwork from the Alaska Natives during the course of the cruise.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
