Holland America launches ‘Time of Your Life’ wave offer

SEATTLE — In celebration of the upcoming wave season, Holland America Line has launched a new ‘Time of Your Life’ offer that includes a free room upgrade, discounted fares and more.

From Dec. 14, 2022 through Feb. 28, 2023, guests who book select summer 2023 to spring 2024 cruises will receive a free stateroom upgrade, fare discounts, free fares for kids and reduced deposits, plus tours, beverages, specialty dining and Wi-Fi with the ‘Have It All’ premium package.

As a bonus, cruisers who book by Jan. 31, 2023 will also receive up to US$400 per stateroom onboard credit, depending on the length of the cruise.

“Wave season features generous promotions to plan the next year’s travel, and we put ‘Time of Your Life’ together thinking about the benefits that are requested most often by our guests,” said Beth Bodensteiner, chief commercial officer of Holland America Line. “While travellers are making their vacation plans, we’re excited to get them thinking about the convenience and diversity of a cruise and entice them to book with ‘Time of Your Life’ when the value of cruising is at an all-time high.”

‘Time of Your Life’ benefits include the following:

  • Free Stateroom and Balcony Upgrades: Guests can book a verandah stateroom for the price of an ocean-view (or ocean-view for the price of an interior).
