Microsoft To Offer Multimedia Training On Holland America Cruise Lines

Surely on a cruise from Holland America Cruise Lines you’ll have a good time. But how to pass that on to family and friends? The Seattle Times just posted an article letting us know Microsoft will be offering digital media workshops on these ships.

From a press release the cruise company sent us today:

"With on-hand support from Microsoft ‘techsperts,’" — techsperts, really? — "The Holland America Line Digital Workshop powered by Microsoft Windows will enable cruise guests to document their vacation memories while at sea. The workshops will teach passengers basic technology topics such as digital photography and basic video editing. Cruisers will also learn how to share digital content through email, blogging and social networking sites.

"Designated facilities on each Holland America Line ship will be equipped with the latest computers, monitors, and applications including Microsoft Vista and Microsoft Windows Live services."

Holland plans to debut the new amenity on its ms Amsterdam in Seattle on June 6 and expand it to all 14 of its ships in the next year and a half.
