Cruises cancelled in Caribbean, Mexico, Panama Canal and Australia

By Patti Pietschmann, Travel Diva 

 Holland America is  continuing to cancel cruises on all ships through December 15, 2020. The move comes in the wake of global coronavirus concerns and port and travel restrictions.

Automatic bonus and future credit credits 

If you’re holding reservations on HAL you will automatically receive an option for a future cruise credit  (FCC). Passenger paid in full will get a 125% FCC of the base cruise fare. Those holding tickets with money due are eligible for an FCC of double the amount of their deposit.

FCCs are valid for 12 months from date of issue.  They are eligible for sailings departing through Dec. 31, 2022. Additional funds paid to the line may be applied to a new booking or an automatic refund.

Full refunds and option

Full refunds are available by visiting the Cancellation Preferences form no later than Sept. 15, 2020.

 These option do not apply to charter sailings.

Travel advisors commissions

If you booked a cruise through helpful, friendly Pavlus, not to worry HAL’s honoring commissions.

By the way, Holland America isn’t sailing in Alaska, Europe and Canada/New England cruises this year. And, select Hawaii itineraries for early 2021 are on hold.
