In honor of the 120th anniversary of the Klondike Gold Rush, Holland America Line is launching a “Find Your Gold” sweepstakes that will award five lucky winners an authentic gold nugget valued at approximately $1,000. As the only cruise line to offer Alaska and Yukon travel, the glistening golden treasure is the prefect representation of Holland America Line’s deep connection to the region.
In 2016, the cruise line will continue to deliver exceptional experiences with 149 voyages and 248 Land+Sea Journeys to The Last Frontier. Guests who book and travel on any 2016 Yukon+Denali Land+Sea Journey will be eligible to win one of the five gold nuggets. Most Alaska Yukon+Denali Land+Sea Journey adventures feature a complimentary gold panning experience at historic Gold Dredge #8 in Fairbanks, where guests can learn about the life of a prospector and test their own skills to find the mother lode.
The giveaway runs through Sept. 2, 2016, and the five winners are scheduled to be selected mid-September in a random drawing. The drawing is open to legal residents of the 50 United States (excluding Colorado), the District of Columbia and Canada (excluding Québec) who are 18 years of age or older at the date of entry. Entries may be submitted by mail with no purchase necessary.
