Terms & Conditions

Holland America Line (“HAL”) is offering guests the ability to sign up to be on standby to cruise on eligible and select cruises (the “Program”). The Program is available to guests 21 years of age or older and is intended for those residing within driving distance from a port. In order to add yourself to a cruise’s standby list, call 877-724-5425 and provide the agent with the cruise information for the cruise for which you would like to join the standby list. If the cruise is available for standby passengers (the “Cruise”), you will be required to make full payment on the Cruise’s reduced cruise fare of $49 per person per day based on double occupancy (for first two guests in a stateroom) at the time you are placed on the Cruise’s standby list. Payment is not a guarantee or promise that Cruise will have space/availability for guest; guest will only be cleared for standby to cruise when/if the guest receives official confirmation from HAL approximately 7 days before Cruise’s departure. This Program is not combinable with other offers or promotions. $49 per day fare amount excludes Taxes, Fees & Port Expenses. Guests shall have no ability to select or request a certain room type on the Cruise and, if a stateroom is available, guest will automatically be assigned to such stateroom; no upgrades available. Once a guest puts themselves on the standby list for a Cruise, they cannot be removed from the list, and if such guest clears the standby then the guest’s full charge will remain (regardless of whether or not the guest shows up to cruise on the Cruise). If guest does not clear standby, they will automatically be refunded the full amount of the cruise fare that they were charged at the time they were placed on the standby list. Guests wanting the ability to remove themselves/not be charged for the Cruise if they elect not to sail should instead opt to go on a cruise waitlist (and pay at prevailing rates), not this non-refundable Program. Free 3rd & 4th Guests: 3rd and/or 4th Guests in a stateroom are eligible to travel free (Taxes, Fees & Port Expenses are additional) when booked as a 3rd and/or 4th guest in a stateroom with 1st and 2nd Guests booked through the Program on select cruises. Standard refund and cancellation conditions apply. A deposit is required for all stateroom guests and the amount of deposit varies, even if deposit is reduced per Offer.
