Holland America has ruined me! I don't want to work...I just want to cruise!!! and only with them. I have been on 5 and wish I could go on them more often. I also don't want to even try another cruise line even though better deals are to be had simply because I don't think they can compare to HAL.quotation mark

Komodo Island, Indonesia

Komodo Island, Indonesia

Cruise to Komodo Island


One of the 17,508 islands that comprise the Republic of Indonesia, Komodo Island lies at the southern end of the Lesser Sunda chain. This 150-square-mile island has a king, and it’s a reptile. The Komodo dragon, Earth’s largest living lizard, weighs approximately 155 pounds, measures around ten feet in length and has a lifespan of up to 50 years. To put these creatures in perspective, there are 2,000 humans on Komodo Island and around 3,000 Komodo dragons. They are fierce meat eaters who feast on deer and carrion. Now isn’t it time you met one? Visitors can take a guided tour of Komodo National Park (which encompasses the island) to experience these and other unique animals. Continue your explorations with the island’s human inhabitants who are proud to share their culture. Then enjoy a relaxing walk on a gorgeous pink sand beach.

CPP is available for purchase on Holland America Line Cruises and Land+Sea Journeys, and is offered as a Standard Plan or a Platinum Plan.

Frequently Asked Questions


Four reasons to choose the Holland America Line Cancellation Protection Plan:


  1. YOU CAN CANCEL BEFORE DEPARTURE FOR ANY REASON. Even if it's up to 24 hours before departure under our Standard Plan or right up to departure with our Platinum Plan. Your reservation may be easily cancelled for any reason whatsoever - no claim forms to submit or fine print to review.

CPP Standard Plan – Provided by Holland America Line

Our Standard Cancellation Protection Plan (CPP Standard Plan) will allow you, for any reason, to provide written cancellation up to 24 hours prior to the start of your scheduled travel (sea, land and/or air) arrangements made by Holland America Line and receive a refund equal to 80% of the eligible amounts paid. CPP Standard is available to all guests, regardless of residency.

In addition, Holland America Line (HAL) automatically assumes an additional $500 (USD) of liability for lost, damaged or delayed baggage of guests who purchase the CPP Standard Plan still subject, however, to the limitations in our baggage policies. For example, we do not cover losses while baggage is in the custody of airlines. Please review our Baggage Policy.

Please note: The CPP Standard Plan is not insurance – this is an optional purchase offered by and administered by Holland America Line. It may be added to your reservation to provide you with trip cancellation protection for up to 24 hours prior to the start of your scheduled travel. It provides no rights other than those explained above. For example, it does not protect double-triple-quad occupancy rates should one or more members of your party cancel, nor does it cover expenses for unused services due to trip interruption.

The CPP Standard Plan is available for purchase prior to the date on which cancellation fees begin to accrue. Payment is due at time of purchase. The cost of CPP Standard is non-refundable. The per person, per cruise cost is listed with the cruise fares. To add our Cancellation Protection Standard Plan to your new or existing bookings, please call us at 1‐877‐932‐4259.
