HAL Promotion Asks ‘Why Not Now?’

In anticipation of the upcoming Wave season, Holland America Line (HAL) has launched a new “Why Not Now?” promotion in an effort to entice savvy travellers to plan ahead.

The special offer on cruises from summer 2019 through winter/spring 2020 includes free stateroom upgrades, shore excursion discounts, up to $1,000 air credit per stateroom and deposits from $99 person if booked by Feb. 28, 2019.

Guests who book a suite with Why Not Now? also receive up to $600 in onboard spending money, in addition to the other perks.

“Special promotions like Why Not Now? are a huge incentive to get travellers booking their cruise vacations early, and Wave season is the perfect time to introduce a robust offer with several benefits,” said HAL president Orlando Ashford. “When it comes to getting the very best experience for your vacation dollar, cruising is an unbeatable value.”

As part of the promotion, depending on departure and ship, guests who book an interior stateroom will be upgraded free to an ocean view stateroom and those booking an ocean view stateroom will get upgraded free to a verandah. Free upgrades are based on available space at the time of booking and may differ based on sailing date.

By booking air through Holland America’s Flight Ease program from offered gateways, guests are eligible to receive an air credit up to $1,000 per stateroom.

Cruise destinations featured in Why Not Now? include select Alaska cruises and Land+Sea Journeys, EXC In-Depth Voyages, Asia, Australia & New Zealand, Canada & New England, the Caribbean, Cuba, Europe, Hawaii, the Mediterranean, Mexican Riviera, Panama Canal, South America and South Pacific.
