Holland America Line’s Noordam Rescues 41 in Alaska

alaskan ship rescueOn June 8, Holland America Line’s Noordam ship came to the rescue when 40 visitors and a park ranger were having mechanical troubles in a sightseeing boat docked near Johns Hopkins Glacier in Glacier Bay, Alaska. The sightseers were served lunch on Noordam and then dropped off at Bartlett Cove, where their ship Baranof Wind originated earlier that day. 

Noordam guests were in the midst of a seven-day cruise from Vancouver, British Columbia to Alaska. Holland America Line’s 7-Day Inside Passage excursion departs from Vancouver and sails to several nature destinations in Alaska. Guests on the ship get to experience Glacier Bay, Frederick Sound, Juneau, Ketchikan, Skagway and other Alaskan villages to get a taste for the natural and scenic environment that Alaska has to offer. Guests then return to their port of origin, Vancouver, to discover a city of skyscrapers, 1,000-acre parks, gardens, unique cuisines and other outdoor activities.
