Team Holland America Line Walks in the Seattle Pride Parade

More than 130 Holland America Line shoreside employees and shipboard members from Oosterdam recently walked in the Seattle Pride Parade to show their support for Pride Month and the LGBT community. Not only is it great way to support our local community, but it also brings us closer together as a company.

“Our Holland America Line family is as diverse as the Pride rainbow. Throughout our 146 years we have catered to nearly every walk of humanity. It is only right to show our company’s pride and support of the LGBTQ+ community, which so richly supports our line as guests and fellow associates!” — Gerald Bernhoft, Director, Mariner Society
