Heading into high season for winter getaways, and with spring and summer vacations on the horizon, Black Friday and Cyber Monday promotions are well-timed for the travel industry.
SEATTLE — Holland America Line’s Explore4 promotion is back with four new offers on more than 600 cruises departing March 2018 through April 2019.
Clients looking to book a cruise or Alaska Land+Sea Journey for next year or beyond can take advantage of perks including complimentary beverages and specialty dining aboard ship as well as reduced deposits and free or reduced fares for friends and family. Suite bookings also receive onboard spending money.
The Explore4 promotion for guests booking any category stateroom includes a Signature Beverage Package valued at US$1,400 per stateroom (based on a 14-day cruise), dinner at the Pinnacle Grill for two, free or reduced cruise fares for friends and kids in the same stateroom, and 50 percent reduced deposits. Guests receive all benefits, and bookings must be made by Nov. 17, 2017.
Guests who book a cruise in a suite category stateroom will receive the four offers plus an additional $200 onboard spending money per stateroom ($100 per person).
“Explore4 is a popular promotion that our guests eagerly await each year because they appreciate perks like complimentary beverages, dinner at Pinnacle Grill and reduced fares for thirds and fourths in the same stateroom — which are great for multi-generational travel,” said Holland America Line President, Orlando Ashford. “There’s no better incentive to encourage cruisers to book early than an exceptional value, and by booking now for next year with Explore4, our guests ensure they are able to reserve their preferred itinerary and stateroom.”
Guests who book any category stateroom receive a Signature Beverage Package that includes wine, beer, spirits, cocktails, sodas and coffee. The beverage offer is only applicable on the cruise portion of Alaska Land+Sea Journeys.
