Holland America Line
Holland America Line is currently running its “View & Verandah” promotion towards select 2017 and 2018 sailings and Alaska Land+Sea Journeys. Travelers who reserve by February 28, 2017 will get a cabin upgrade, an onboard credit up to $500 per cabin and up to 10 percent off select Journeys Ashore tours. Plus, those booking a suite will get prepaid gratuities. Eligible cruises are from March 30, 2017 to April 28, 2018 except Grand Voyages and Grand Voyage segments.
The upgrade works such that a cruiser can reserve an ocean-view cabin for the cost of an interior one or a verandah one for the cost of an ocean-view stateroom. Extended beyond the initial promotion, discounts on over 1,500 Journeys Ashore tours can be had through March 15, 2017.
Additionally, travel agents who book clients with the promo will be automatically entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win a 7-day cruise of their own. One entry will be added for every View & Verandah reservation.
“Our annual View and Verandah promotion is popular with our guests because of the fantastic offers, and by giving travel professionals the chance to win a cruise we hope it’s just as enticing for them to book their clients,” said Eva Jenner, Holland America Line’s vice president of North America Sales. “We’re always thinking about ways to thank travel professionals for their loyalty and business, and there’s no better way to show our appreciation than to create an opportunity for them to sail aboard one of our ships to experience exactly what their clients love and enjoy.”
