Holland America on Tuesday announced that it will again extend its pause in operations through at least April 30, 2021, as the line continues to work through meeting the Framework for Conditional Sailing Order, issued by the CDC last year.
The Alaska cancellations include some sailings further out in the year, including Alaska sailings out of Seattle on Eurodam and Oosterdam through the first week of June; Koningsdam Alaska sailings through mid-May out of Vancouver; Nieuw Amsterdam and Noordam sailings out of Vancouver through mid-May; and Zuiderdam sailings out of Vancouver through early June.
Outside of Alaska, Holland also announced that Volendam sailings out of Venice through early June; Westerdam sailing through early June out of Venice; and Zaandam sailings out of Boston through August, will also be cancelled.
Holland, in its announcement, said that it will continue to follow the CDC’s framework, and is currently preparing its fleet to meet all the requirements.
All guests and travel advisors have been notified if impacted, and options for cruise credits and rebooking have been communicated—those who have been paid in full will receive a 125% FCC of base fare and those not paid in full will receive a FCC of double the amount of their deposit, valid for 12 months from date of issue and valid to use for sailings through the end of 2022.
Guests can also opt for a full refund.
