Holland America Line’s ‘Why Not Now?’ Promotion Has Upgrades, Air Credit, Reduced Deposits and Shore Excursion Savings

December 12, 2018.

In anticipation of the upcoming Wave season, Holland America Line is launching a Why Not Now? promotion.  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.

The Wave promotion comes just after the announcement by Cruise Critic that Holland America Line received the 2018 Editors’ Pick Award for Best Value for Money.   The Cruise Critic Editors’ Picks Awards are chosen by Cruise Critic’s international team of editors, based on the lines and ships they feel best represent excellence in each of the designated categories.

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. Every effort will be made to accommodate.

By booking air through Holland America Line’s Flight Ease program from offered gateways, guests are eligible to receive an air credit up to $1,000 per stateroom. Reduced deposits starting from $99 are available with the Why Not Now? offer, and booked guests who also reserve select shore excursions by Feb. 28 can take advantage of up to 10 percent savings.

The bonus $600 onboard spending money for suite bookings can be spent on a variety of amenities, including specialty dining, spa services, shore excursions, gift shop purchases, beverages and more.
