CRUISE_Zielia.jpg, the first-of-its-kind platform for cruise itinerary planners, nailed an agreement with Holland America Group.

Hundreds of ports

This makes the digital database the preferred platform for the group's brands that include Princess Cruises, Holland America Line, Seabourn and P&O Cruises Australia. Employees of Holland America Group will now have access to detailed destination information and marketing materials for almost 350 ports in Europe, Canada/New England, the Caribbean, South Pacific and more.

'We are pleased to offer the Holland America Group a much-needed resource for cruise planners in the industry,' said Shannon McKee, Zielia co-founder. 'It’s our hope that this partnership will begin to bridge the communication gap between destinations and cruise lines.'

Reliable, up-to-date information

Zielia was created with the goal of providing a single, reliable source for cruise planners to find up-to-date information. The platform is based on the five pillars of itinerary planning: destination, port, attractions, marketing and calendar.

'We are always looking for ways to provide a superior product and service to our customers and the use of the Zielia platform will allow for more strategic and efficient planning of our itineraries and offerings,' said Robert Morgenstern, SVP of port operations and shore excursions for Holland America Group. offers a comprehensive digital database of information that enables cruise lines to quickly and easily choose which ports to include on their itineraries and which ones to use as homeports. Holland America Group employees now have convenient access to maps, quick facts, port details, top attractions, marketing materials, transportation and a calendar of events.

The website also saves time and money by reducing the need for printed materials and external drives.
