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 my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
