  1. I appears that the website tries to force you to specific cabins in the specified category. My suggestion is to go to another travel site and search for available cabins for same cruise. It works! Try A_A or O-----Z. You will still need to call HAL to book.
  2. Thanks for that info. Many of us are hoping that Zaandam stays in the fleet and based on this current maintenance that looks good for her sailings in 2021 and beyond.
  3. Is Botlek port in Rotterdam NL a drydock? Why has Zaandam been there for a week?
  4. There are a lot of people in the same (sic) boat that were sailing on sold ships this fall. (Veendam) I used FCC to pay for them and they show as "other credits". I was-expecting to see the FCC applied to a cruise booked next summer at some point. Maybe after the date passes for sold ship cruises?
  5. Account is now back up but no new FCC or other additions.
  6. Sorry for the redundant post. We crossed at same time. My PCC told me earlier that accounts were being updated with FCC and OBC from cancelled cruises. I was surprised by OBC which came with the bonus FCC.
  7. This is the msg I'm getting on all browsers and log ins. Anyone else? Please enter a valid email address and password. Your session has expired. Please sign in again.
  8. Received FCC for June 27 2020 cruise to Canada today. It was split between the two Mariner accounts. Will apply to Holiday cruise later this year if it goes. Have 25 % bonus also. Will still cruise someday I guess. Also bought gift cards with the 20% bonus. Am I too optimistic?
  9. You'll need to check other websites than HAL. I use AAA - , Or___tz or Ex__ _ia to see what cabins are still open. There are probably others as usually only 10 are live at a time. If you know what cabin you want, sometimes it can be entered on HAL during fake booking,
  10. The Zaandam is circling off the coast today. Probably with no passengers. It was supposed to enter DD yesterday. There still is an opening in Freeport but it is not clear if the workers are going to be allowed to do the upgrade. Stay tuned.
  11. I received the email last month when they added the OBC to ALL my bookings.
  12. For further clarification I am posting entire letter. I'm assuming that it's for people keeping and not cancelling booking. I want to personally thank you for choosing Holland America Line for your upcoming cruise. These continue to be unpredictable times, but please be assured that Holland America Line takes the health and safety of our guests and crew very seriously. To protect the health and safety of all on board, we are closely monitoring the evolving situation. Holland America Line has deep partnerships with the global health experts from the World Health Organization and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and together, we have developed enhanced screening, prevention and control procedures for our ships to keep guests and crew safe. You can learn more about our enhanced pre-boarding and onboard health protocols, along with other important information here. Nevertheless, we understand our guests have questions about their upcoming vacation plans. In order to give guests greater peace of mind, Holland America Line is extending our Short Term Cancel Policy for cruises or Alaska Land+Sea Journeys departing through July 31, 2020. For guests who choose to keep their booking as currently scheduled for departures between now and July 31 will receive the following Onboard Credit (OBC) amounts: $100 per stateroom ($50 per person) for 6-day cruises (or fewer) $200 per stateroom ($100 per person) for 7-day and longer cruises If you choose to continue to sail with us, we will automatically apply your onboard credit to your booking. There is no need to call us. Guests with existing bookings on sailings between now and July 31, 2020, who decide to change their vacation plans, can now cancel their booking up to 48 hours prior to sailing and receive a 100% Future Cruise Credit (FCC) for the amount of the cancellation fees assessed, less the cost of Cancellation Protection Plan (Standard or Platinum) Future Cruise Credit can be used for another cruise in 2020 or 2021. The FCC must be applied to a new booking by Dec. 31, 2020. FCCs are nonrefundable, non-transferrable and do not have to be used on the same destination that was cancelled. If any portion of your travel was not booked through Holland America Line, other booking and cancellation conditions and policies may apply. Please consult with your Travel Advisor or Tour Operator for more information. We also know that there are people with specific individual health situations that impact their ability to safely travel during these times. For those guests who are able to provide supporting documents from their health care provider, Holland America Line will issue them a Future Cruise Credit. For information on submitting a request with documentation under this “Compassion Policy,” please contact your travel advisor or our Reservations Department. This offer is available for guests booked on any sailing, regardless of departure date. I continue to believe that travel has the power to change us and our world. For 147 years, Holland America Line has been a recognized leader in cruising and weathered many storms. We look forward to introducing guests to new places, people and cultures for years to come.

  13. We are over 70 and still have reservations on HAL. We received this as part of an email from CEO regarding our bookings. "We also know that there are people with specific individual health situations that impact their ability to safely travel during these times.

  14. I may be foolish but I don't purchase travel insurance. That is a risk I'm willing to take. So far I'm ahead of the game.
  15. I am keeping my bookings until they get cancelled (July & Nov 2020). If the ship goes so will I. No air travel required, however.
