Seattle, Wash., Oct. 9, 2017 — Holland America Line is supporting October’s National Plan a Cruise Month organized by Cruise Lines International Association with two premium offers: onboard spending money for 2017-18 Caribbean cruise bookings and additional onboard spending money for all Explore 4 promotion bookings covering several cruise destinations in 2018 and 2019.
The month-long event offers promotions that aim to give consumers the opportunity to become more knowledgeable about cruising, as well as plan and book a Holland America Line cruise vacation while taking advantage of one of the richest promotions of the year.
“Plan a Cruise Month continues to be a very successful initiative that puts a spotlight on what is certainly the best vacation value and most enticing way to see the world,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “By creating extra booking incentives, we’re making October the best month to plan your first or your next Holland America Line cruise.”
Caribbean is Open for Travel and Bookings Receive Up to $300 Onboard Spending Money
For Plan a Cruise Month, new bookings in an ocean-view stateroom or higher for all of Holland America Line’s upcoming Caribbean cruises from October 2017 through March 2018 are eligible to receive up to $300 in onboard spending money.
“While a few islands in the Caribbean were impacted by recent storms, more than 40 ports are currently open and welcoming cruise guests right now, so we extended this offer to include our upcoming Caribbean season to focus positive attention on the region,” added Ashford. “Making our Caribbean cruises eligible to receive the onboard spending money shows our confidence that cruises to these beautiful islands will deliver an exceptional vacation.”
2018-19 Cruises Include Onboard Spending Money and Explore 4 Perks
For the second Plan a Cruise Month offer, travelers making a booking on select 2018 and 2019 cruises receive onboard spending money up to $400, depending on the length of the cruise and type of stateroom booked. This offer can be combined with the cruise line’s Explore 4 promotion that provides four added-value extras on select March 2018 through April 2019 cruises. The four offers include a Signature Beverage Package valued at up to $1,400 per stateroom, dinner for two at the Pinnacle Grill, reduced cruise fares for third and fourth bookings in the same stateroom, and 50 percent reduced deposits.
Suite bookings also receive $200 onboard spending money per stateroom ($100 per person) in addition to the four offers and exclusive Plan a Cruise Month onboard spending money, making it possible to receive a total of up to $600 in onboard spending money.
