Choose from balcony-level and higher staterooms from $1,899 CAD per person. Nine of the sailings come with free gratuities, free beverages, $150 USD per person onboard credit, and taxes. Only those who book by Feb. 5, 2021 can claim this value.
The other departures in 2021 include the gratuities and a $100 USD onboard credit per person.
“There’s a lot of pent-up demand, and as people feel more comfortable traveling, space is going to book up quickly,” says Dave Frinton, who co-owns CruisePlus with his wife, Shelley Good.
“The people who book now will get extra value, which will contribute to an even greater experience and better availability than if they wait.”
The capacity allowed onboard has been reduced to accommodate social distancing and this will reduce supply while demand stays strong.
“Cruise lines are putting all kinds of protocols in place to make the trip as safe as possible for everyone,” Frinton says.
“It’s a very convenient trip since it is round-trip from Vancouver. Many people have not done anything for over a year, so it has already been selling very well.”
Any cruise booked by Jan. 31, 2021 that departs through Oct. 21, 2021, is eligible for the Book With Confidence Guarantee. This program allows travelers to cancel for any reason up to 30 days before departure, automatically receiving a future cruise credit for any non-refundable portion of their trip.
“In two or three months, when millions of people have been vaccinated, and the COVID cases come down, people will get their confidence back.”
“We know it’s not the ideal time to travel right now, but it is a great time to book for the future”, Frinton adds.
“We’re offering exceptional value. Even if a last-minute bargain comes up, it wouldn’t likely include the beverages, gratuities or shipboard credit,” Frinton says.
Holland America is consistently ranked as the best Alaska cruise line because of its unmatched knowledge and experience. The cruise departs from Vancouver and winds its way up the coast to Ketchikan, Alaska, taking in white-capped peaks, arctic-blue glaciers and wildlife.
Some of the trip highlights include the Mendenhall Glacier, an amazing 13-miles long, half-mile wide and up to 1,800 feet deep glacier that stretches from the Juneau Icefield to Mendenhall Lake; the White Pass Scenic Railway, an optional scenic round trip railway linking Skagway to the Yukon that offers an unforgettable journey to the summit of the White Pass at nearly 3,000 feet in elevation; most Holland America line itineraries include Glacier Bay National Park, which hosts the world’s most spectacular tidewater glaciers that are part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site; the Rainforest Sanctuary, a scenic nature reserve known for incredible wildlife sightings.
“If you are lucky enough to get a sunny day in Glacier Bay, the view will leave you speechless.”
“It’s a pinch yourself kind of beauty, I never get tired of it.”
Not only do Holland America Alaska cruises offer a chance to take in the beautiful scenery, but also luxurious comfort and gourmet dining.
“Cruises are great because it’s so easy and convenient. You unpack once, you enjoy a fabulous floating hotel, great entertainment and you get treated like a million bucks,” Frinton says.”
