Holland America’s pause extension will impact Caribbean, Mexico, Panama Canal, Pacific Coastal, South America, Antarctica, Hawaii, South Pacific, Australia and Asia itineraries.
Travel agent commissions on bookings for cancelled cruises that were paid in full and for the total amount of the FCC when rebooked will be protected.

The FCC is valid for 12 months from the date of issue and may be used to book sailings departing through Dec. 31, 2022. All other funds paid to Holland America Line may be transferred to a new booking or will automatically be refunded via the method of payment used to purchase the services.
A full refund option is also available to guests. Visit the Cancellation Preferences form to indicate that a refund is preferred, no later than Sept. 15, 2020.
These options are not applicable to guests booked on a charter sailing. Other booking and cancellation conditions and policies may apply if the cruise was not booked through Holland America.
Due to the global pandemic, Holland America has paused global cruise operations and cancelled all Alaska Europe and Canada/New England cruises for 2020, additional departures from the port of Vancouver in 2020, as well as select Hawaii itineraries for early 2021.
