Travel Advisory

With the continuation of travel and port restrictions due to global health concerns, Holland America Line is extending its pause of cruise operations and cancelling departures on all ships through Dec. 15, 2020. Guest bookings on impacted cruises automatically will be cancelled, and no action is needed for guests opting for the Future Cruise Credit (FCC). All guests will receive an FCC per person as follows:

  • Paid in Full: Those who had paid in full will receive 125% FCC of the base cruise fare paid to Holland America Line.
  • Not Paid in Full: Those with bookings not paid in full will receive an FCC of double the amount of the deposit paid for the cruise. The minimum FCC is $100 and the maximum will be an amount up to the base cruise fare paid.

 

The FCC is valid for 12 months from the date of issue and may be used to book sailings departing through Dec. 31, 2022. All other funds paid to Holland America Line may be transferred to a new booking or will automatically be refunded via the method of payment used to purchase the services. Learn how to view and use your FCCs

The above options are not applicable to guests booked on a charter sailing. Other booking and cancellation conditions and policies may apply if the cruise was not booked through Holland America Line. See the terms and conditions in the Cancellation Preferences form for all details.

Learn how to view and use your FCCs

The value of the FCC may be applied to the cruise fare only of a new cruise or Land+Sea Journey reservation with Holland America Line, and it is combinable with any other applicable discount. While the FCC is valid until December 31, 2022, it must be booked within 12 months of the issue date. This offer cannot be transferred or used as a deposit. FCCs may not be used for onboard expenses, pre- and post-cruise packages, shore excursions, taxes, fees and port expenses, Cancellation Protection Plans, FlightEase air, Hotel Service Charges, or other optional programs or services. OBCs cannot be used to pre-purchase services or amenities and may be used toward all onboard purchases but cannot be redeemed for cash or used in the Casino. Guests or their travel advisors should verify this offer with our Reservation Agent at the time the new reservation is booked. For guests’ convenience, the credits are built in direct association with Mariner Numbers so they will automatically be credited toward the cruise fare of the next Holland America Line sailing booked by the guest.
 

All FCCs expire 12 months from the date of issue and are subject to published terms, conditions, and restrictions.
