Ships of Orange

Do you know what Thursday is? If you're Dutch or aboard a Holland America ship you knew immediately that it's Koningsdag! King's Day - the celebration of King Willem-Alexander's birthday - a national holiday when everybody goes a little crazy celebrating their national heritage.

Of course Holland America, which started out as a Dutch company in 1873, celebrates decorating the ships in orange (the national color) and invites passengers to join in the celebration and sample some Dutch treats.

Details appeared in the April 26 edition of Cruise News Daily.
