“Holland America Line’s Early Advantage promotion encourages cruisers to plan ahead by offering substantial rewards for those who book early,” said Richard D. Meadows, CTC, executive vice president, marketing, sales and guest programs. “Guests benefit from significant savings and have more stateroom and departure choices.”
On select sailings, free and reduced cruise fares are available for third or fourth guests who share the same stateroom and no additional deposits are required. Reduced add-on airfares also are offered from select domestic gateway cities in conjunction with designated cruises. Taxes and fees are additional.
With savings of up to 50 percent off per person, the Early Advantage promotion encompasses an extensive selection of fall 2010 Caribbean and 2011 cruises sailing to more than 350 ports of call in destinations around the world: Alaska, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, Bermuda, Canada/New England, Caribbean, Europe, Hawaii, Mexico, Panama Canal and South America/Antarctica.
In 2011 Holland America Line’s newest Signature-class ship, ms Nieuw Amsterdam, will sail its first full year of itineraries, including popular Mediterranean sailings. With Early Advantage savings, guests can book a 12-day cruise with fares starting as low as $1,699 per person, double occupancy, for an inside stateroom and $2,499 for a verandah — and third or fourth guests start from only $99.
In other regions with the special fares, a 12-day South America cruise starts at $1,299 for an inside stateroom. A 14-day Australia/New Zealand cruise starts at $1,499 for an inside stateroom and $1,599 for an outside stateroom.
A seven-day 2011 Caribbean cruise starts at $599 for inside staterooms and $899 for verandahs. For vacationers looking to travel sooner, the timing has never been better with all fall 2010 Caribbean cruises also providing Early Advantage benefits and special pricing starting at $499 for seven-day itineraries.
A 14-day 2011 Circle Hawaii cruise starts at $1,599 with an optional upgrade to an outside stateroom for only $200 more. And a 14-day full transit of the Panama Canal begins at $1,399 for an inside stateroom or $1,599 for an outside stateroom.
Popular seven-day Alaska Inside Passage cruises from Seattle or Vancouver start at $699 for inside staterooms or $1,299 for verandahs. Another option is one of Holland America Line’s Alaska CruiseTours, varying in length from 10 to 20 days and starting at $999 for inside staterooms and $1,199 for outside staterooms.
