SEATTLE — Holland America Line has brought back its popular ‘View & Verandah’ promotion, which gives passengers perks like stateroom upgrades, onboard spending money and more.
Available on cruises embarking from March 28, 2018 through March 23, 2019 (excluding Grand Voyages and Grand Voyage segments), the promotion allows guests who book an eligible cruise to receive a stateroom upgrade, up to $500 per stateroom in onboard spending money (depending on cruise length and stateroom category), and up to 10% off select EXC Tours (shore excursions). Moreover, those who book a suite will receive prepaid room gratuities.
“Our promotions are created to help travellers plan their dream vacation with added value, and we continue to bring back View & Verandah each year because our guests appreciate added premiums like upgrades and a credit to spend on board,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “We extend the offer to cruises well into 2019 so those who like to plan early have incentive to book now and can take advantage of the benefits.”
As part of the View and Verandah offer, guests can book an ocean-view stateroom for the price of an interior and a verandah for the price of an ocean-view. Depending on the length of cruise and category of stateroom, guests can receive onboard spending money up to $400 per stateroom and $500 per suite. The onboard spending money is available to the first and second guests in a stateroom and can be used for specialty dining, spa services, gift shop purchases, beverages and more.
Guests who reserve select EXC Tours can take advantage of up to 10 % savings if booked by March 15, 2018. More than 1,500 EXC Tours are eligible for the savings. As an added bonus, suite guests also receive prepaid room gratuities in addition to the onboard spending money and discount on EXC Tours.
Cruise destinations featured in the View & Verandah sale include Alaska cruises and Land+Sea Journeys, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, Bermuda, Canada and New England, the Caribbean, the Panama Canal, Europe, Hawaii, Mexico and South America, as well as holiday sailings.
