Holland America Line has launched a new PartnerSHIPS Podcast series exclusively for travel professionals so that on-the-go agents have a more convenient way to learn about the brand. Delivered bi-weekly beginning this week, the podcasts will explore the Holland America Line brand and offer tips and news to ensure travel professionals have the tools they need to sell the line’s premium cruises.
The podcast series builds on Holland America Line’s trade promise that debuted earlier this year, pledging the cruise line’s commitment to providing comprehensive support to its travel partners and an exceptional cruise experience for their clients.
With podcasts at only 10 to 20 minutes in duration each, travel professionals can stay current on all things Holland America Line. The first two podcasts in the series already are available:
- “Grand World Voyages” with President Orlando Ashford and Senior Director, Trade Communications and Engagement, Denella Ri’chard.
- “Explorations Central: Part 1” takes a closer look at Explorations Central programming with Bill Fletcher, senior director of Destination Marketing.
Holland America Line is dedicating more resources to help travel professionals deepen their knowledge of the cruise line’s products and itineraries. In addition to the podcasts, there are new Holland America Line Academy Core Courses and Specialist Training Courses designed to establish agents as experts in the brand, while the North America PartnerSHIPS Sales Seminar Series brings Holland America Line’s latest news and initiatives to its partners in person and through webinars.
Holland America Line operates a fleet of 14 ships offering more than 500 cruises to over 400 ports in 98 countries, territories or dependencies around the world.
