    Holland America Line is offering a last-chance deal for Aussie/Kiwi travellers to book their 2024-2025 cruises with just a $25 deposit per person as part of its ‘Time of Your Life’ Offer.

    From 12 to 14 March, guests who book ‘Have It All’ fares for select cruises and cruise tours from May 2024 and April 2025 will also receive a room upgrade on select categories, up to 30 per cent off launch fares, a 50 per cent reduced deposit and reduced fares for kids.

    The offer excludes Grand Voyages and any cruise lasting five days or less.

    “With so many journeys to choose from, Aussie/Kiwi travellers can start planning the ultimate holiday on our perfectly mid-sized ships with just a $25 per person deposit”, VP sales & partnerships, Holland America Line, Ryan Taibel, said.

    “Our carefully crafted itineraries offer our guests the opportunity to explore magnificent destinations such as Alaska, where they can witness more glaciers than on any other cruise line, or Europe, featuring an unparalleled number of overnight stays in premier locations.”

    Offering an ideal mid-sized ship experience, Holland America Line’s fleet visits nearly 470 ports in 114 countries around the world and has shared the thrill of Alaska for 76 years — longer than any other cruise line.
