Holland America Line has cancelled its remaining summer 2021 sailings onboard Nieuw Statendam and Volendam.
The move affects cruises scheduled to depart between September and November, including its Collectors’ Voyages.
New ship Rotterdam, meanwhile, is expected to be delivered on time on 30 July; however, the ship won’t make its debut until 26 September when it will sail from Amsterdam. Plans for its naming ceremony are being finalised.
Guests booked on cancelled Nieuw Statendam and Volendam sailings will be automatically moved onto one of Eurodam’s Mediterranean voyages, starting 15 August and running through to 30 October.
They will receive $100pp additional onboard spending by way of compensation.
Alternatively, they can choose to move onto an equivalent cruise in 2022 at their 2021 fare, or take future cruise credit worth 110% of any cash paid to the line.
Guests booked on a cancelled Rotterdam sailing, meanwhile, will be automatically rebooked onto an equivalent sailing in 2022 at the 2021 fare paid, or they can choose to receive 110% FCC.
Any guest on a cancelled voyage also can request a full refund of all money paid to Holland America Line.
Refunds are available to all guests booked on a cancelled cruise.
