HAL-Holland America extending Worry-Free Promise through September 2022

   January 20, 2022 ,   Cruise Industry

HAL-Holland America is giving customers the confidence to make plans through the summer months with the extension of the line's Flexible Cancellation Plan to September 30, 2022.

As part of HAL's “Worry-Free Promise,” the company will also continue to implement best practices for COVID health safety including operating vaccinated voyages and requiring a medically-supervised negative test before sailing.

Under the Flexible Cancellation Plan, originally offered for voyages departing through the end of April, passengers who make a new booking by March 31, for itineraries that depart on/before September 30, can cancel for any reason and receive an FCC-Future Cruise Credit in the amount of cancellation fees that would normally be incurred.

Cancellations must be made up to 30 days prior to departure. Additionally, final payments for sailings through May 31, are due at 60 days instead of 75/90.

For additional reassurance, Holland America’s Cancellation Protection Program can be purchased for new voyages or Alaska Cruisetour bookings or existing bookings as long as it's purchased prior to the date cancellation fees begin to accrue.

Offered as a Standard/Platinum plan, passengers can cancel for any reason up to 24 hours before departure with Standard and right up to departure under Platinum and receive refunds between 80-90% of eligible amounts paid. The cost varies by fare and is nonrefundable.
