Karen Farndell, Director Sales & Marketing for Holland America Line, said:

“Following the fantastic feedback we received regarding our 2023 ship visit programme, we have decided to go one better and provide even more opportunities for agents to get onboard this year.

“These visits are crucial in helping the trade broaden their knowledge and understand what makes Holland America Line unique in the market.

“As we prepare to offer ex-UK sailings from Dover in 2025, it’s even more vital we give agents the information they need to confidently sell these itineraries.

“These ship visits complement the raft of trade-friendly tools we have available, ensuring we have everything in place to help generate enquiries and sales.”
