Celebrating 140 Years: Port of Vancouver Plaque Exchange

Celebrating 140 Years: Port of Vancouver Plaque Exchange

The Port of Vancouver had a plaque exchange yesterday morning to acknowledge our 140th birthday. Thanks to our partners at Vancouver for celebrating with us this important milestone. We received this nice note from Carmen Ortega, manager, business development, for Port Metro Vancouver:

Port Metro Vancouver and Holland America Line have a relationship that spans over 40 years and we are honoured and grateful to have been part of your 140th Anniversary. We hope that you continue to enjoy your anniversary celebrations all around the world!—Carmen Ortega

    Was thrilled to see Zaandam on evening news on TV after disembarking April 18th. Glad to see my home port helping to celebrate Hal’s 140th Anniversary.
