Holland America Line announced a new series of exclusive
shore excursions developed with National Geographic.

The cruise line revealed it would start operating National
Geographic Day Tours this summer that allow travelers to connect more deeply
and in a more sustainable way with destinations in the Mediterranean.

Passengers sailing on Oosterdam and Nieuw Statendam can
participate in National Geographic Day Tours that allow them to discover
powerful female figures in Kusadasi, Turkey; experience a day in the life of a
marine biologist in Naples, Italy; learn about organic honeybee farms in
Rhodes, Greece; and meet local families in Santorini, Greece. 

“We are continually looking for enriching and transformative
experiences for our guests and the new National Geographic Day Tours are not
only immersive, but provide exclusive access and hands-on experiences,” Holland
America Line vice president Carole Biencourt said.

“We are pleased to offer them to guests across our
Mediterranean itineraries that visit these ports and will look to expand the
program in the near future,” Biencourt continued. 

A National Geographic-trained guide leads each tour. Guests
on select sailings in the Mediterranean can now book National Geographic tours online
or through a travel advisor.

Holland America Line’s nearly 6,500 unique shore excursions
are designed to help guests make the most of each port and deeply connect with
the places they visit.

Earlier this month, the cruise line unveiled its 2024-25
Asia itineraries
, including
10 countries, 49 port calls, nine one-of-kind 14-day itineraries combining
multiple countries and two longer Legendary Voyages. The sailings will depart
from Hong Kong, Yokohama (Tokyo) and Singapore.
