The breathtaking BBC Earth experiences which are already on several Holland America ships are now rolling out to the rest of the fleet.
The cruise lines partnership with the award-winning BBC Earth is expanding to more ships. BBC Earth experiences can all ready be enjoyed on ms Koningsdam, ms Noordam, ms Rotterdam, ms Oosterdam, ms Zuiderdam and ms Eurodam. The rest of the fleet apart from ms Prinsendam will also be able to enjoy the experiences by March 2017.
Orlando Ashford, Holland America Line’s president, said:
“Since announcing the BBC Earth partnership, we have been looking forward to launching the programming on board; and now that it’s rolling out across the fleet it’s even more engaging and visually powerful than we imagined.”
“Our guests are destination seekers with a desire to learn more and know more when they are cruising with us. ‘BBC Earth Experiences’ bring them to the most remote corners of the world in an incredibly innovative way.”
As part of the partnership guests can enjoy a wide range of shows, activities and can even get a chance to ask questions to BBC Earth experts on select cruises during 2017. One highlight is “Frozen Planet Live,” a groundbreaking concert based on the BBC Earth “Frozen Planet” television series. “Frozen Planet Live,” on each ship’s main stage, features live musicians playing a specially orchestrated musical score by award-winning composer George Fenton as the images unfold on screen.
To celebrate Holland America Line 70th anniversary of exploring Alaska, a new BBC Earth Alaska show will be developed for the 2017 Alaska cruise season. Show details will be revealed in early 2017.
