Calling all nature lovers, wildlife enthusiasts and documentary fiends – Holland America Line has just announced an exclusive partnership with BBC Earth!
Guests onboard Holland America’s special BBC Earth feature cruises can now experience even more of the world’s natural wonders onboard.
The new partnership is an exclusive opportunity for guests to immerse in BBC Earth’s award-winning, world-class, captivating experiences onboard, which range from epic live feature documentaries, gameshows, trivia and children’s activities.
“Now that (the partnership) is 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 and ‘BBC Earth Experiences’ bring them to the most remote corners of the world in an incredibly innovative way.” – Holland America Line president Orlando Ashford
Featured documentary-concert hybrid “Frozen Planet Live,” based on BBC Earth’s “Frozen Planet”, features live musicians playing a specially orchestrated musical score by award-winning composer George Fenton. The thrilling adaptation is an emotional and evocative journey into the wilderness of the polar regions, where life thrives in the most extraordinary conditions.
“Inside Earth” documentary films are also available, and guests wanting to test their knowledge can participate in the fun and entertaining “What on Earth!” family game show, bringing the entire weird and wonderful world of BBC Earth to life.
It’s fun for the whole family, too, with kids and junior cruisers getting their adventure on at BBC Earth’s Club HAL Tweens with countdown fact shows to discover amazing facts about animals, dinosaurs and sea creatures.
The icing on the cake? A chance to experience behind-the-scenes access to BBC Earth’s groundbreaking documentaries by cruising with producers, cameramen and presenters, and participate in master classes and question and answer sessions hosted by BBC Earth experts.
