Written by: Cruise News
December 3, 2014 — With the 2015 cruising season quickly approaching, Holland America Line is launching a new ReadySetSail promotion that enables guests to take advantage of special offers, including an onboard spending credit for suite guests that can be put toward a variety of shipboard experiences. ReadySetSail offers are available on select 2015 summer sailings and feature savings for multiple destinations, so guests are encouraged to book early for the best stateroom selection.
Guests who book cruises or an Alaska Land+Sea Journey (offers on cruise portion only) with the ReadySetSail promotion will receive a complimentary stateroom upgrade from an interior to ocean-view or ocean-view to verandah stateroom, up to 10 percent savings on select shore excursions when booked before March 15, 2015, free or reduced third and fourth fares, and a reduction of 50 percent off the normal deposit rate. With complimentary upgrades, guests can sail in an ocean-view stateroom for the price of an interior or receive a free upgrade to a verandah when purchasing an ocean-view. Suite bookings receive a $300 onboard spending credit per stateroom ($150 per person), a complimentary three-bottle Wine Navigator Package and two free soda cards per stateroom in addition to the other ReadySetSail offers.
“This is a great time of year to introduce some of our best promotions when people are thinking about making their summer plans, and ReadySetSail features exceptional savings that we know will entice travelers to book a Holland America Line cruise,” said Orlando Ashford, president for Holland America Line. “It’s hard to beat the value of a cruise vacation, and ReadySetSail makes it even more inviting to take a dream holiday with family and friends.”
Cruise destinations featured in the ReadySetSail promotion include Alaska cruises and Land+Sea Journeys, Bermuda, Canada/New England and Europe.
Ideal Family Cruises with Extra Savings
Families reap vacation benefits from ReadySetSail with free or reduced third and fourth fares. With ReadySetSail, travelers also will enjoy fun and interesting experiences for the whole family with select summer shore excursion adventures that can be booked before March 15, 2015, at up to 10 percent off. These savings provide the perfect opportunity to visit some of the most recognizable monuments, photograph stunning scenic landscapes and embark on a memorable adventure.
By taking advantage of the 50 percent reduced deposit offer, guests will have more flexibility and time before paying the final deposit on their cruise or Alaska Land+Sea Journey. And a complimentary full category upgrade makes it possible to book a lower-fare cabin and cruise in a higher category.
Onboard Credit for Suite Guests
The onboard credit for suite guests can be used to enjoy a variety of shipboard experiences, including a treatment at the Greenhouse Spa and Salon, gift shop purchases, shore excursions, beverages or a dinner at an alternative venue such as the Pinnacle Grill, Canaletto, An Evening at Le Cirque or Tamarind.
