SEATTLE, Aug. 1, 2019 /CNW/ -- Holland America Line is launching its annual Explore4 promotion today, designed to entice travelers to start thinking about a future cruise vacation. Explore4 features four inviting offers on nearly 600 cruises and Alaska Land+Sea Journeys from summer 2020 through spring 2021.
Travelers looking to plan ahead for next year or beyond can take advantage of all the perks, which include up to $800 in onboard spending money per stateroom, a complimentary Pinnacle Grill dinner, 50% reduced deposits, and a $25 Beverage Card for kids or extra guests traveling as the third and fourth guests in the same stateroom. Verandah stateroom and suite bookings also receive a Premium Internet Package. Guests receive the benefits when bookings are made by Oct. 31, 2019.
"We know that a lot of travelers like to plan their vacations well in advance, and Explore4 makes now the best time to book a cruise for next year or 2021," said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. "Explore4 gives cruisers the incentives they value the most, with onboard spending money that can be used for shore excursions, the spa, specialty dining, beverages and more. Plus there's a bonus for our verandah stateroom and suite guests."
Explore4 is valid on a variety of itineraries from April 2020 through May 1, 2021. With this promotion, guests can book a cruise to many of Holland America Line's global destinations, including Alaska, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, Canada/New England, Europe, the Caribbean, Hawaii, Mexico, the Pacific Coast, the Panama Canal, South America/Antarctica and the South Pacific. Grand Voyages and Grand Voyage segments are excluded.
The onboard spending money is up to $800 per stateroom and depends on the length of cruise and stateroom category. Guests can use the extra funds to order beverages, indulge in a treatment at the spa, book a shore excursion, go shopping on board for souvenirs, make a specialty dining reservation, pick up a photo and more.
Explore4 also includes a complimentary dinner at the award-winning Pinnacle Grill, a specialty restaurant known for serving delectable Pacific Northwest favorites and featuring dishes from Culinary Council member David Burke. The tantalizing menu highlights steak and seafood dishes like filet mignon and Alaska king salmon, as well as Burke's famous Clothesline Candied Bacon.
The $25 Beverage Card is good for children or others traveling as the third and fourth guests in the same stateroom.
