Holland America Line has extended its flexible cancellation plan and it will now cover bookings made up to May 31, 2022.
Under the plan, guests making new bookings by May 31 for sailings departing on or before September 30, 2022 can cancel for any reason and receive a future cruise credit. Cancellations can be made up to 30 days before departure.
“We want our guests to confidently make their summer cruise plans,” said Beth Bodensteiner, Holland America Line’s senior vice president and chief commercial officer. “By extending the date our guests need to book their cruise under our Worry-Free Promise, it will allow them to take advantage of some great limited-time special offers with the peace of mind that if they change their plans they can still take a cruise at a later date.”
The line’s Cancellation Protection Program can also be purchased for new cruises, Alaska Cruisetour bookings or existing bookings, as long as it’s purchased before the date cancellation fees begin to accrue.
A spokesperson explained: “Offered as a standard plan, guests can cancel for any reason up to 24 hours before cruise departure and receive refunds between 80% to 90% of eligible amounts paid. The cost varies by cruise fare and is nonrefundable.”
