Holland America Line Extends BBC Earth Program

Planet Earth II has been astounding TV viewers across the country for a few weeks now, receiving fantastic reviews whilst educating and entertaining in equal measure. Anyone who has been inspired by the series will be pleased to know that the BBC Earth program currently found aboard particular Holland America Line ships is being extended to cover the entire fleet. Not only that, but new experiences, shows and themed cruises are being added to increase the offering to more nature fans around the world.

HAL and BBC Earth have been enjoying a fruitful partnership since April this year and from March 2017 there will be even more opportunities on board ships such as Noordam, Rotterdam and the brand new Koningsdam. The current program will be rolled out to all vessels except Prinsendam and exciting new additions have also been announced.

Guests can look forward to enjoying a stunning live show based around the Frozen Planet series which was shown on our screens in 2011. The performance will consist of an orchestra playing the musical score written by George Fenton whilst images of nature at Earth’s Polar Regions play in the background. Other new features will include a gameshow for the whole family entitled ‘What on Earth?’, trivia-based fun in the tweens club and ‘Inside Earth’ documentary films shown on the big screen.

Plus, there will be four special cruises sailing during 2017 which will give passengers the chance to interact with some of the people that have worked on these spectacular BBC Earth productions. Producers and cameramen will be on hand to take part in Q and A sessions during which they will share some fascinating stories. The four special sailings will depart on January 29th (Caribbean on board Koningsdam), April 7th (Panama Canal on board Oosterdam), July 8th (Canada and New England on board Maasdam) and October 27th (Japan and Taiwan on board Volendam).
