For its 2023 Alaska cruise season, Holland America Line will donate proceeds from its “On Deck for a Cause” event aboard ships in the region to Alaska Geographic, the nonprofit education partner of Alaska’s parks, forests, refuges and conservation lands. Holland America Line has six ships exploring Alaska from MAY through SEP 2023.

Called “On Deck for a Cause: Alaska’s Parks,” guests on all Alaska cruises will be invited to donate USD $25 to participate in a noncompetitive 5k fundraising walk aboard every sailing. Participants receive an "On Deck for a Cause" T-shirt, wrist band and can enjoy a reception following the walk. Funds raised through “On Deck for a Cause: Alaska’s Parks” will go to support education, science and research in Alaska’s parks.

“We are proud to support Alaska Geographic in their mission to make Alaska’s public lands more accessible to everyone and boost their work to preserve them for future generations,” said Michael Smith, senior vice president, guest experience and product development at Holland America Line.

According to HAL, nearly half a million participants have joined in more than 8,400 walks aboard its cruises since the inception of the “On Deck” program in 2006. Currently, On Deck for a Cause benefits the global humanitarian aid organization Direct Relief and has raised more than USD $550,000 for Ukrainian aid over the past 14 months. The remaining five ships in the Holland America Line fleet will continue to raise funds for Direct Relief with On Deck for a Cause.
