Up to $300 Spending Money Added to all
2017-2018 Caribbean Cruise and Explore 4 Bookings
Seattle, Wash., Oct. 9,
2017 — Holland America Line is supporting October's National Plan
a Cruise Month organized by Cruise Lines International
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
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."
