Holland America Line

Added May 13, 2020

Holland America Line is a cruise line headquartered in Seattle, Washington, and offering cruises throughout the world on its 15 ships.

Company Behavior Summary

  • Due to travel restrictions, many crew members have been stuck on cruise ships since the outbreak of the corona virus. However, Holland America has opted not to pay those crew members who are not necessary for the essential operations of the ships, leaving employees stranded without pay on a ship with no opportunity to try and find employment elsewhere.
  • It should be noted that other cruise lines with employees in the same situation opted to pay stranded employees for some length of extra time. For example, Royal Caribbean extended pay such employees for an extra month.


About The NoGo List

Which companies put profits over people? What is the latest big business scandal? Who's taking inappropriate handouts from the government?

The NOGO List was formed as a way for consumers to see what companies have been up to and make informed decisions about which companies deserve their business. We believe these actions should be public, and should not simply disappear with the next news cycle.

Our goal is to present as accurate a picture of each company as we can, so that consumers can make their own decisions. The NOGO list can be used on its own, or as a starting point for further research. Use it however you like.

Sleep better with the knowledge that you are supporting companies aligned with your values.

And, if you see that we are missing a company that belongs on this site, please submit it. We review all submissions and will include them on the site as soon as we can.
