SEATTLE, Dec. 6, 2012 /CNW/ - Holland America Line has dramatically increased its video library on www.hollandamerica.com with the recent addition of 325 short videos showcasing the line's shore excursions in Alaska and select ports around the world.
Featuring 275 videos on Alaska tours and 53 port overviews with shore excursion details, guests can get a glimpse of select tours before departing on a cruise and deciding which ones to book. Whether it's a flightseeing tour in Anchorage, Alaska, or exploring the streets of Quebec City — the premium line's top-rated port call — the videos show the beauty and diversity of each port while highlighting a particular tour.
"Videos are the best way to show our guests what's in store when they book a tour and to let them know what they can expect," said Richard Meadows, executive vice president, marketing, sales and guest programs for Holland America Line. "We have more than 4,000 shore excursions, so these videos help our guests select the right tour that fits their desires."
When in port, guests on a Holland America Line cruise can choose from several diverse shore excursions including Overland Adventures, off-the-beaten-track explorations, Signature Collection private-car touring and exclusive Medallion Collection excursions.
