New podcast series is just for agents, says Holland America

SEATTLE — Holland America Line has launched a new podcast series exclusively for travel agents on the go.

Knowing how busy agents are, the new PartnerSHIPS Podcast series will be delivered bi-weekly beginning this week, with podcasts lasting only 10 to 20 minutes each. Each podcast will explore the brand and offer tips and news to ensure agents have the tools they need to sell Holland America’s premium cruises.

“Holland America Line’s new PartnerSHIPS Podcast series is an exciting way to give travel agents deeper insight into our brand from our executives while allowing them to choose the easiest way to listen: in the car, at the office, at home or even while keeping active,” said Eva Jenner, vice president of sales for Holland America Line. “Our new trade promise set the foundation for us to provide our travel partners with every tool possible to help them be successful, and the podcasts are a valuable addition to our website, Holland America Line Academy courses, webinars and seminars.”

The first two podcasts in the series are already available at, ‘Grand World Voyages’ with President Orlando Ashford, and Senior Director, Trade Communications and Engagement Denella Ri’chard; and ‘Explorations Central: Part 1’, which highlights Explorations Central programming with Bill Fletcher, senior director of Destination Marketing.

The podcast series builds on the company’s trade promise made earlier this year, which outlined its commitment to providing the most comprehensive support to its travel partners.

Agents are also encouraged to sign up for new Holland America Line Academy Core Courses and Specialist Training Courses, which are designed to establish agents as experts in the brand. Also notable is the North America Partnerships Sales Seminar Series, which brings the company’s latest news and initiatives to its partners in person and through webinars.

Agents can connect with their BDM and the sales team through for more information, or by emailing
