  2. ELIGIBILITY: The Sweepstakes is open only to individual persons who as of the date of entry are legal residents of the United States (excluding Florida and New York) or the District of Columbia and are 21 years of age or older (“Entrants” or “Eligible Entrants”). Entrants may be required to show proof of eligibility. Employees of Holland America Line N.V.

In the event of a dispute regarding an entry associated with an online registration, such registration will be deemed made by the authorized account holder of the e-mail address submitted at the time of registration (i.e., the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address), and entry will be awarded to that person upon check-in on-site at the Event.
