Holland America Line extends cancellations into 2021
12 Jun 2020by James Chapple
Holland America Line has extended its operational pause later into the year, and partially into 2021.
Several 2020 Vancouver sailings and early 2021 Hawaii itineraries have been cancelled.
HAL said the decision owed to ongoing travel and port restrictions arising from global health concerns.
Guests booked on affected cruises will be automatically issued future cruise credit (FCC).
They can, however, opt for a full refund, but must notify HAL of their preference by 15 July.
Affected cruises include:
- A 22-day Panama Canal cruise onboard Eurodam from Vancouver to Fort Lauderdale departing 26 September
- A seven-day Pacific Northwest cruise onboard Konigsdam from Vancouver to San Diego departing 26 September
- Two Circle Hawaii Voyages, also onboard Konigsdam, departing San Diego on 16 January 2021 and 2 February 2021
- A 16-day Mexico and Sea of Cortez cruise onboard Maasdam from Vancouver to San Diego departing 21 September
- A 14-day North Pacific Crossing onboard Noordam from Vancouver to Yokohama departing 27 September
- One three-day and two seven-day Pacific and coastal cruises onboard Volendam from Vancouver departing 30 September, 3 October and 10 October
- A 17-day Circle Hawaii cruise onboard Westerdam from Vancouver departing 20 September
- A 23-day Inca Discovery cruise, also onboard Westerdam, from Vancouver to San Antonio (Chile) departing 7 October
Collectors’ Voyages that combine back-to-back cruises including any of these departures have also been cancelled.
Travel agent commission will be protected on cancelled cruises, and will be paid on any FCC when rebooked.
