Holland America Line Wraps Up The Holidays With 20 Winter Escapes To Exotic and Popular Destinations

Special Gift: Family Reunion Program Offers Tremendous Value & Fun

Seattle (June 21, 2005) – From the exotic — celebrating Christmas with penguins in Antarctica or toasting Hanukkah beneath the fiery Kilauea volcano in Hawaii — to a popular Caribbean or Mexico cruise, Holland America Line invites savvy travelers to celebrate the season this December on one of 20 winter escapes.


“The gift of travel is an ideal present made all the more special when shared with loved ones and extended family,” says Richard D. Meadows, CTC, senior vice president of marketing and sales. “From enriching activities ashore to special onboard festivities celebrating the season, our holiday cruises provide tremendous value and extensive options for travelers of all ages.”

Families will enjoy the spirit of the holiday with the premium cruise line’s Family Reunion Program rewarding those who book five staterooms or more with special pricing and extra amenities enhancing the already inherent value and ease of a cruise vacation. The special program features extras such as unlimited soft drinks, family photos, and dinner in the line’s specialty Pinnacle Grill Restaurant. Caribbean-bound families might enjoy free rentals of snorkel gear and swim mats or banana boat rides on Half Moon Cay, Holland America Line’s award-winning private island.

From December 17 through 30, 2005, Holland America Line offers several cruise departures ranging from 7- to 20-days and accommodating the varied schedules of busy professionals, school kids and grandparents. Destinations, both close-to-home and far-flung, include:

The white-sand beaches and azure waters of the Caribbean — the perfect warm winter retreat with 13 holiday cruises, ranging from 7 to 15 days, traveling round-trip from Ft. Lauderdale and Tampa, Florida, and Norfolk, Virginia. Most itineraries feature a visit to Half Moon Cay, the line’s award-winning private Bahamian island. Here, in addition to relaxing on the beach or enjoying a host of water sports activities, guests will appreciate the island’s Family Aqua Park with slides, AquaTrax guided personal water craft park, sting ray adventure program and a horseback riding and swimming tour. One cruise also visits the Orinoco River in South America.
The mystery and beauty of the Mexican Riviera — explored with four journeys 8 or 10 days traveling round-trip from San Diego. In a country known for its festive celebrations, guests may experience the excitement of Las Posadas, the nine days before Christmas.
Wondrous journeys to more exotic locales — 15-day Circle Hawaii itinerary round-trip from San Diego featuring the talents of Ying Chang Compenstine, an internationally recognized Asian healthy cuisine author traveling as part of the line’s Culinary Arts Program; a 16-day New Zealand/Australia adventure from Auckland to Sydney; and a 20-day exploration of South America & Antarctica traveling from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Valparaíso, Chile.
Each holiday voyage features clergy to conduct Catholic, Protestant and Jewish services. Holland America Line’s on-board festivities for the entire family include holiday decorations, special movie showings, traditional dinner selections, religious services, a visit for the kids from Santa — sometimes arriving by parasail — activities and crafts for the Club HAL kids program, and a Christmas show by the crew on Christmas Eve. The line also holds a New Year’s Eve Gala and arranges to broadcast some college bowl games on board the ship.

With per person fares beginning at US$999 for a 7-day Caribbean cruise, the uncommon level of service, elegant accommodations, and enchanting style of a Holland America Line vacation represents tremendous value – perhaps the best gift of all.
