Holland America Line has launched a “View and Verandah” sale to entice savvy travellers and agents to plan ahead and book a 2016 or 2017 cruise. The special offers include free stateroom upgrades, free flights, up to 10% off selected shore excursions and savings on Collectors’ Voyages if booked by 29 February 2016.
As part of the promotion, depending on departure and ship, guests who book an inside stateroom will be upgraded to an outside stateroom and those booking an ocean-view stateroom shall be upgraded to a verandah. For example, guests booking an ocean view stateroom on the ms Oosterdam 12-night Adriatic Dream cruise departing from Rome (Civitavecchia) on 18th April 2016 will receive a complimentary upgrade to verandah – and just pay the ocean view cruise fare of £1,099pp.
Select Collectors’ Voyages also are eligible for up to 25% off under the View and Verandah promotion, with prices from just £1,199pp for a 14-night Mediterranean cruise, departing 10th April from Barcelona onboard ms Eurodam. A guest who books an ocean view stateroom at £1,349pp will receive a free upgrade to a verandah stateroom. Collectors’ Voyages combine back-to-back cruises to form a non-repeating longer itinerary that provides a more in-depth exploration of a region.
Free flights from London and select regional airports are also available on a number of European itineraries on board two of Holland America Line’s newest ships, the ms Eurodam and the ms Koningsdam in spring and autumn 2016. For example, prices for a seven night fly cruise start from £799 per person, based on ms Eurodam 7-night Gems of Spain departing from Barcelona on 17th April, visiting Valencia, Cartagena, Malaga (Granada), Gibraltar, and Cadiz (for Seville). Fly/cruise prices for a verandah stateroom start from £899pp including a free upgrade from ocean view. This flight offer is also available on selected Collectors’ Voyages including a 19-night Gems of the Mediterranean which departs from Barcelona on 17 April onboard ms Eurodam and ends in Venice, with fly/cruise prices from £1,749pp.
Guests who reserve select shore excursions prior to cruising can take advantage of savings of up to 10% if booked by 15 March 2016. This date is extended beyond the View and Verandah offer deadline. More than 1,500 tours on all cruise itineraries will receive the savings.
As well as Europe 2016, cruise destinations featured in the View & Verandah sale include Alaska cruises and Land+Sea Journeys, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, Bermuda, Canada/New England, the Caribbean, the Panama Canal, Hawaii/Tahiti, Mexico and South America.
