Room and Board

Holland America/Princess does not provide company housing in the city of Anchorage but a large portion of our employees tend to share housing for the summer to keep expenses at a minimum.  Anchorage has a fairly large metropolitan area and residents are well aware of the seasonal housing needs of people arriving for the summer.  This makes the job of finding affordable seasonal housing in the Anchorage area not too difficult.

Perks

Working for our company during the summer comes with a great many perks. There is an excellent in state travel program that will allow you to visit any of our Lodges for a discounted rate. There are also a number of discounted cruising programs that our employees can enjoy upon completion of their seasonal contracts. The biggest perk of all is traveling through the ever changing landscape of Alaska on a daily basis.
