Club Orange includes dedicated concierge, exclusive
dining, priority access and more
Seattle, Wash., Nov. 12, 2018 — Holland America Line is
introducing the unique Club Orange program that provides exclusive benefits and
amenities to guests looking to elevate their cruise experience. From a private
dining venue to priority services and a dedicated concierge hotline, Club
Orange allows guests to opt in to extra privileges that are available to a
limited number of guests on each cruise.
Club Orange will be included for guests in Neptune and Pinnacle Suite
categories, and the program will be available to purchase for a small number of
non-suite staterooms on each sailing. The program is slated to launch on Koningsdam
and Nieuw Statendam in December 2018, with
a rollout to the rest of the fleet in 2019.
"Club Orange allows guests to add extra premium benefits and luxury amenities
to their cruise for a great value," said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland
America Line. "One of the reasons people choose Holland America Line is because
of the quality of what we offer — the best food at sea, the most authentic live
entertainment and our award-winning service — and Club Orange is another way
for guests to enhance their cruise experience."
The name Club Orange pays homage to Holland America Line's rich Dutch heritage.
The company was founded in the Netherlands more than 145 years ago and it's the
color of the Dutch Royal Family, which hails from the House of Orange.
Aboard Koningsdam and Nieuw Statendam, the Culinary Arts
Center dining venue is being transformed into an exclusive Club Orange
restaurant that will be open every day for breakfast and dinner. The
complimentary venue will serve the same menu featured in Pinnacle Grill
(breakfast) and the Dining Room (dinner) and also include additional daily
dishes exclusive to the Club Orange restaurant. When Club Orange is introduced
on other ships of the fleet in 2019, a dedicated section of the Dining Room
will be set-aside for the exclusive use of Club Orange guests for breakfast and
dinner. Reservations in the private dining venue are not required but welcome.
Amenities that come with the exclusive Club Orange program include priority
check-in and disembarkation, priority tender service and priority alternative
restaurant reservations made on board. Club Orange guests also have a dedicated
line at Guest Services and the EXC Tours shore excursion desk, as well as a
dedicated concierge hotline on board for dining reservations, shore excursion
assistance, general questions and support.
Additional benefits to Club Orange include an enhanced in-stateroom à la carte
breakfast dining menu with complimentary premium selections such as steak and
eggs or smoked salmon Benedict, a welcome glass of sparkling wine at dinner on
embarkation day, premium bathrobe for use in stateroom (and available for purchase
and monogramming), and an exclusive Club Orange tote bag.
The cost of Club Orange is $50 per person per day, and the first and second
guest in the same stateroom are both required to purchase the program. Club
Orange is included for third and fourth guests in the same stateroom. Club
Orange must be purchased prior to cruise departure and is not available for
purchase on board.
Once a guest has booked their cruise, they or their travel advisor can add Club
Orange by contacting Holland America line Ship Inventory at 1-888-628-8107 or
