I just accepted a job on Holland America's Amsterdam going seattle to alaska for this summer. I was wondering if anyone had any advice or experience with Holland America, Alaska, or the Youth counselor position (my job). Thanks!
Yes - I do. I spent six weeks on the old Westerdam doibng the Alaska inside passage. You probably won't see a LOT of kids, but some. On my ship we were doing 3 and 4 day turn-arounds from Juneau because of the land portions. People would cruise up, get off the ship for a few days and then return to the ship for the return trip the next week. It made keeping track of passnegers pretty confusing.
Other than that - Hal is a great line to work for, and I am sure you will like the ship, the food, the people and the accomodations. Do well and you could be a cruise director some day.
I am the editor, but I also speculate, ask questions and play devil's advocate. I reserve the right to change my mind.
