At Holland America Line, we have a world-class team that’s passionate about bringing people together to make unforgettable memories. And we love partnering with others who feel the same way. That’s why we’re proud to announce our partnership with Australia’s flagship national field hockey teams.

As a leading premium cruise line with a fleet of 11 ships that sail to all continents, Holland America Line has become the exclusive cruise line and Official Partner of Hockey Australia and a Major Supporting Partner of the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos.

“We are delighted to welcome Holland America Line into our suite of corporate partners and to have them aligned with our iconic national teams,” said David Pryles, Hockey Australia CEO. “Similarly, to Holland America Line, hockey in Australia has a proud and successful history built on excellence. The Kookaburras and Hockeyroos travel to many parts of the world to compete, and with hockey being such a popular global sport, we look forward to helping grow the awareness of Holland America Line and its range of destinations and international routes.”

The timing of this partnership is particularly meaningful as Holland America Line celebrates its 150th anniversary.

“We are extremely proud of our rich Dutch history at Holland America Line, which began 150 years ago. Our partnership with the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos is a further extension of this, with hockey being one of the most competitive and widely played games in the Netherlands,” said Ryan Taibel, VP of sales and marketing at Holland America Line Australia. “We are excited to partner with these elite hockey teams and athletes and support them as they compete across the globe flying the Australian flag. We look forward to sharing in their ongoing successes as they help us in raising awareness for Holland America Line as one of the world’s great cruise companies.”

Holland America Line is excited to welcome Hockey Australia members and fans on board to experience why people love cruising with us.
