The fully independent U.S. Coast Guard honors
Holland America Line
for oceanographic environmental excellence.
Despite grandiloquent claims to the contrary by the uninformed and too often blindly critical masses, the cruise industry is often at the forefront of environmental protection for Earth's marine environment. One cruise line that obviously deserves, and has just officially received exemplary credit for attention to oceanographic environmental matters is Holland America Line - the Seattle-based company that specializes in cruises to Alaska and other ecologically sensitive marine environments.
