YOU GET MONEY BACK. Holland America Line refunds 80-90% of eligible amounts paid, for cancellations up to 24 hours prior to departure (or up to departure with the Platinum Plan).


NO EXCLUSIONS FOR PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS for either Standard or Platinum Plans.


SAME PRICE FOR ALL AGES. We offer the same excellent protection for everyone, at the same cost.


EASY TO BOOK. Cancellation Protection Plans can be booked until the date cancellation fees begin to accrue (varies by cruise). Opt in when making your booking or visit Manage my Bookings to add a plan to your existing reservation.
