    I notice that there are no rewards for service. While the service onboard was generally very good, customer service prior to booking and after has been horrible. I almost canceled several times prior to the cruise due to bad service and inconsistency in information . I was double charged for an excursion which I have been trying to get refunded for since the beginning of February with no luck and only response that of receipt of email. That does not make me want to book again because while that charge might not be huge… next time it might. We were planning family cruises due to great itineraries, but I cannot recommend Holland America at this point. March 31, 2023

      We apologize that your customer service experience is not satisfactory. Currently guest relations response time is 6-8 weeks, which we know is not ideal. Our team is working through an abundance of emails.
