SINGAPORE, 27 July 2021: To
kick off their return to service in the US, Princess Cruises and Holland
America Line held a celebration at the Port of Seattle on 23 July.

Princess Cruises president
Jan Swartz and Holland America Line president Gus Antorcha spoke about the
positive multidimensional impact the resumption of cruising means to Seattle,
the local community and Alaska.

Holland America Line kicked
off its Alaska season with Nieuw Amsterdam sailing 24 July, and Princess
Cruises followed with Majestic Princess sailing 
25 July.

Each line will operate 10
cruises sailing out of Seattle through September. This marks the return to
cruising and Alaska for both lines, combined with more than 125 years of
experience bringing cruisers to The Great Land. Historically, one in two guests who cruise to Alaska sail on
Princess or Holland America.

Both cruise lines have been
homeporting out of the Port of Seattle for more than 20 years. Operationally,
each ship visit directly contributes more than USD364,000 to the local economy
in provisioning (fuel, food, flowers, piano tuning, supplies), port taxes, and
spending during a full season.

Princess Cruises is the world’s leading international premium cruise line and tour company operating a fleet of 14 modern cruise ships to 380 destinations around the globe. Princess celebrates more than 50 years of sailing to Alaska, bringing more guests to the Great Land than any other cruise line.

Holland America Line has
been exploring the world since 1873 and was the first cruise line to offer
adventures to Alaska and the Yukon nearly 75 years ago. Its fleet of premium
ships visits more than 400 ports in 98 countries around the world, offering an
ideal mid-sized ship experience.
