Holland America Line is bringing its award-winning onboard entertainment, culinary scene, destination highlights and more to the homes of fans with HAL@Home, a new virtual cruise experience. Through cooking demonstrations, musical performances and enriching videos, the premium cruise line is connecting with guests who can “come aboard” from the comfort of their computer.
The HAL@Home series kicked things off with a cooking demonstration by Culinary Council Member Ethan Stowell, and it has been overwhelmingly well-received. New HAL@Home editions are released weekly, with plans for the series to continue through early summer.
With each new release, Holland America Line sends an email to past guests and those signed up to receive communications, and all of the videos live on Holland America Line’s YouTube channel, HollandAmericaFans.
