Cruise Wave Season Kicks Off With ‘View & Verandah’ Promotion That Includes Big Upgrades

This Wave Season Holland America Line is inviting travelers to return to their happy place with the ultimate “View & Verandah” upgrade event that includes six bonus perks. Guests who book a 2021 or 2022 Holland America Line cruise from Dec. 10, 2020, through Feb. 28, 2021, will receive a “BIG” stateroom upgrade, Signature Beverage Package, free one-night specialty dining, 10% off all shore excursions, 50% reduced deposits and free or reduced fares for kids. Savings with the “View and Verandah” Big Event is valued at up to $3,800 per stateroom, depending on length of cruise and category booked.

As an added bonus, guests who book by Jan. 5, 2021, will receive all six of the incentives plus free gratuities. View & Verandah applies to the first and second guests in a stateroom, and it includes most of Holland America Line’s global itineraries and the cruise portion of an Alaska Land+Sea Journey.

“With most of the country spending their free time at home and in small groups, Wave Season for the cruise industry will be even more important to travelers than ever before. Plus, it’s just like a multi-week Black Friday sale where we share fantastic offers that make booking a cruise an incredible value,” said Gus Antorcha, president of Holland America Line. “If you’re like a lot of people and ready to get out and travel in the next 18 months, you can’t beat six great perks and a free gratuity bonus to see Alaska and Europe this summer or the Caribbean, Mexico and more next fall and winter.”

Book an ocean-view stateroom and get a verandah.

Cruising is a Happy Place with Holland America Line’s ‘BIG’ Wave Offer
As part of the View & Verandah offer, guests can book an ocean-view stateroom for the price of an interior and a verandah for the price of an ocean-view. Cruisers also receive a Signature Beverage Package and an evening at the Pinnacle Grill or Tamarind specialty restaurants.

Guests who reserve select shore excursions prior to embarkation can take advantage of up to 10% savings if booked by March 14, 2021. A 50% reduced deposit makes it more affordable to plan a Holland America Line cruise, while free and reduced fares for kids apply to the third and fourth guests in the same stateroom.

Cruise destinations featured in the View & Verandah sale include Alaska cruises and Land+Sea Journeys, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, Canada and New England, the Caribbean, Europe, Hawaii, Mexico, Pacific Coast, Panama Canal and South America, as well as holiday sailings through 2022.

    If we book a Verandah for 2 adults and 2 children how does the Beverage Package work for the children? Can we get non-alcoholic Sodas, etc for them using the daily limit? Thanks!

  • Julie

    Hi Nancy, yes, you can use the Signature Beverage Package for the two adults to get sodas and non-alcoholic drinks under $11, as long as you stay under the 15 drinks per day per guest 1 and 2.

    Hi Julie,
    On November 20, 2020, Holland America cancelled our October 2021 Oosterdam cruise. When can I expect the credits to be available for new bookings. I would like to be able to take advantage of this promotion and have a cruise to look forward to!

  • Cheryl Dwernychuk

    We were booked in 2020 for an Alaska cruise which was cancelled so instead of a refund we rebooked for this June. Would we still qualify to receive a drink package?
    Thank you

  • Julie

    Hi Cheryl, if you booked with a promotion that offers the drink package, then yes! Please call reservations or your travel advisor to confirm.

  • Julie

    Hi Karen, we don’t have booking access, so you will have to call your travel agent or HAL reservations. We apologize.

  • Marjorie Mrasek

    Thank you for this BLOG site as it has reminded me of what we got when we rebooked following a cancelled sailing earlier this year!
    I have a sheet showing the promotion contents but only on that one sheet. At what point in the flow of monies, and changes in itinerary can we expect to see that information again?
    Do we have to wait until we’ve boarded to make dinner reservations using that perk? It is only a 7-day cruise!
    Any help you can give me will be quite appreciated. Thank you.

  • Julie

    Please call reservations to ensure all of your perks are attached to your booking. They will best be able to assist, as we don’t have booking access.
