Holland America Line Brings Alaska Cruise and Denali/Yukon Adventures to Phoenix Area with Free Travel Show Saturday, Nov. 5
Having celebrated its 75th anniversary of Alaska Exploration in 2022, Holland America Line is rolling out the red carpet with an immersive display of all-things Alaska for the event. Attendees will be able to meet the people who bring Alaska to life, make s’mores, take part in gold panning (and keep what they find!), try their hand at ax throwing, and enjoy live presentations and demonstrations.
“No one knows Alaska like Holland America Line, and our Alaska Cruise and Travel Show enables us to show off our decades of expertise through engaging and hands-on experiences,” said Bill Fletcher, senior director, destination marketing, Holland America Line. “Alaska is an easy-access, bucket-list destination for residents of the Phoenix area and a great escape from the heat. By hosting this event we’ll be able to reach people who are thinking about an Alaska cruise but want to learn more from our team and our partners.”
Those who register and attend will have a chance to win one of seven Alaska cruises for two. Attendees who book a Holland America Line Alaska cruise or cruise tour at the show will receive a special promotional offer, including up to $350 spending credit per stateroom.
Scheduled for the Alaska Cruise and Travel Show presented by Holland America Line:
- Attendees can meet an Alaskan Lumberjack from the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show in Ketchikan, Alaskawho will demonstrate ax throwing, and attendees will have the opportunity to test their own skills.
- Just like the prospectors of the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1800s attendees can pan for real gold and perhaps take home an authentic nugget.
- Attendees will feel like they are at McKinley Chalet Resort’s Denali Square as they roast marshmallows and make s’mores around a faux firepit.
- Attendees will learn more about Holland America Line’s enrichment and entertainment programming that brings Alaska on board through authentic experiences that focus on culture, cuisine and adventures ashore.
- All who attend will enjoy live presentations from Alaska operators to see and hear about what they can experience in Alaska.
Shore excursion operators — from the White Pass and Yukon Route Railway in Skagway to the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show in ketchikan — and Holland America Line representatives will be on hand to share more about what to expect when traveling to Alaska with the only cruise line that ventures into the Yukon Territory (hint: it involves river rafting, zip-lining and going deep into the wilderness to spot grizzlies and caribou).
The Alaska Cruise and Travel Show is presented by Holland America Line and co-presented by Expedia Cruises in North Scottsdale. Other sponsors include Alaska Airlines, Allen NavyIcy Straight Point and the Alaska Railroad.
