Once again, the “Ready Set Sail” Holland America promotion kicks in and offers pre-paid gratuities and up to $500 in onboard spending money per stateroom.
Bookings must be made by June 1 2017 to be eligible to receive the offer. Suite guests will receive an additional $100 internet credit.
Almost all cruises that depart between June 1, 2017 and March 30, 2018 are eligible. The exceptions are Grand Voyages and Grand Voyage segments. And the amount of onboard credit depends on the stateroom category. The OBC can range from $100 to $500 per stateroom.
“Covering gratuities represents nice savings for our guests, and the onboard spending money makes it possible for them to take advantage of many of our shipboard venues and experiences that will enhance their overall cruise vacation,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line.
Who doesn’t like free money!
Bottom line, if you’re planning to cruise with Holland America after June 1, 2017 through March 30, 2018, book your cruise by June 1, 2017. Pre-paid gratuities are valued at up to $27 per stateroom per day and you don’t have to spend your onboard spending money to cover gratuities! Instead, apply your onboard bucks for shore excursions, specialty dining and the gift shop.
