Holland America Line was awarded Responsible Fisheries Management certification, officially becoming the first and only cruise line to receive the credential. Holland America Line serves only fresh, certified sustainable and traceable wild Alaska seafood; all six of the line’s ships that sail to Alaska earned the certification following independent audits.

“We applaud Holland America Line for its long-standing commitment to sustainable seafood and its hard work to become the first cruise line to offer RFM certified Alaska seafood,” said Tomi Marsh, Alaska seafood harvester and CSC RFM board member. “Alaska fisheries are highly valued as an integral part of the culture of coastal communities. Thus, fisheries are carefully managed, including input by locals, with a priority for sustainability in a constantly changing ocean in order to ensure that these fisheries are available for the next generation. Holland America Line’s support for RFM not only highlights its dedication to sustainability, but also its dedication to promoting local values.”

 

RFM, a third-party certification program for wild-capture fisheries, aligns with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, which outlines the most complete set of international standards and practices for wild fisheries. On the RFM ecolabel, details include the product’s origin, sharing with consumers where the food comes from every step of the way.

“Holland America Line has shared Alaska adventures with our guests for 75 years, and supporting sustainable fishing and local business is an important commitment for us,” said Gus Antorcha, president, Holland America Line. “We’ve pledged to buy and serve only local, sustainable, fresh seafood on Alaska voyages, and RFM certification is a crucial step in the commitment to sustainability that we share with our guests and fishing families of Alaska.”

 

Holland America Line recently partnered with Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, both committed to serving sustainably sourced Alaska seafood, as that service has been part of the cruise line’s immersive culinary experiences for years. On its Alaska cruises, the line serves more than 2,000 pounds of Alaska salmon, 1,000 pounds of Alaska cod, 800 pounds of Alaska halibut and more. The cruise line recently rolled out newly created seafood dishes this year in the Dining Room on all six of its Alaskan ships, including Alaskan salmon chop; and roasted fennel-crusted Alaskan halibut.

Hidden Gem: Discover Istanbul’s Vibrant Balat Neighborhood

The UNESCO World Heritage neighborhood of Balat rivals İstanbul’s Old City for its historic significance, with an added splash of color. Its cobbled hilly streets boast a full rainbow of houses, cafés, restaurants and churches painted in pinks, reds, oranges, yellows, greens and blues — parts even surpassing my native San Francisco’s steep, colorful corridors. The most vibrant stretch of homes, dating anywhere from 50 to 200 years old, runs along Kiremit Caddesi.

Workshop Kitchen + Bar Review

Palm Springs became a destination of legend when Hollywood’s biggest and brightest during cinema’s “Golden Age” turned the desert community into their glamourous backyard. While restaurants and hotels epitomizing definitive Palm Springs luxury open, adapt and change with the times, it says something that one of its hottest restaurants sets up an outpost back in Los Angeles. And that’s exactly what chef Michael Beckman and restaurateur Joe Mourani did on the southern tip of the always-evolving Fairfax District.

Luxuriate in London

My husband and I recently traveled to London, England, on vacation, our farthest trip since the pandemic started. We were there for longer than a week and planned to squeeze in as much sightseeing as possible during our stay. Ahead of our trip, we knew we would want to mix in some relaxation, so we booked a couple’s massage at The Lanesborough’s spa halfway into our visit.
