SEATTLE, Feb. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Holland America Line and partner Chateau Ste. Michelle winery are kicking off 2016 with a "Welcome Aboard" sweepstakes in North America that offers the chance to win a Caribbean cruise for two in an ocean-view stateroom. Run both in stored and online at welcomeaboardsweeps.com, the joint promotion features Holland America Line and Chateau Ste.
