    Holland America Recognized by Seattle and Vancouver for Environmental Sustainability


    This week, Holland America Line was a recipient of two environmental sustainability awards: the Green Getaway Award and the Blue Circle Award.

    The Green Getaway Award, given by the Port of Seattle, recognized the cruise line’s determination to protect the environment and use of marine sanitation devices on its ships.

    The Blue Circle Award, given by Port Metro Vancouver, acknowledged the cruise line’s commitment to sustainability, particularly in its efforts to reduce onboard emissions and the fleet’s carbon footprint.

    Both awards reflect the company’s efforts to preserve marine life worldwide, especially in Seattle and Vancouver. Since the 1970s, Holland America Line has considered the Port of Seattle as a major port for many of its Alaska cruises. The port is home to three of the company’s vessels which are expected to sail 47 trips this summer season.

    The port in Vancouver, British Columbia, is also home to several of the cruise line’s more popular itineraries, including the 7-day Round-trip Vancouver voyage. On this cruise, guests will experience UNESCO world sites like Glacier Bay National Park, and hike in Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan, Alaska. The trip starts at $649 per person for itineraries available this summer.
