Holland America Line's Digital Workshops Receive an Update

Posted July 22nd, 2014

Some of the most popular enrichment activities on board a Holland America Line cruise ship are the classes offered in the Digital Workshops powered by Windows, and this enrichment program recently underwent an upgrade of its own.

If you are yearning to learn more about computers and cameras, these complimentary lessons with Microsoft-trained "techsperts" will teach you varying levels of experience, ranging from making movies to creating an online scrapbook with cruise photos (perfect for looking back on your cruise memories with the family)!
