HAL issues update on summer2021 European season

Holland America Line confirmed it is cancelling the remainder of the summer 2021 European sailings aboard two ships, Nieuw Statendam and Volendam.

This affects cruises that were scheduled to depart from September through November, along with the Collectors' Voyages combined cruises associated with those departures.

In addition, after an expected on-schedule delivery from the Fincantieri shipyard on 30 July, Rotterdam will remain in non-guest operations until its 26 September sailing from Amsterdam.

Plans for Rotterdam's naming ceremony are now being finalised.

Guests currently booked on cancelled Nieuw Statendam and Volendam departures will automatically be moved to a 2021 cruise on Eurodam in the Mediterranean, beginning with the 15 August cruise through the 30 October transatlantic crossing, and will receive a $100 onboard spending credit per person.

Nieuw Statendam and Volendam guests can also choose to move to an equivalent cruise in 2022 at the 2021 fare or receive a Future Cruise Credit of 110% of any cash paid.

Guests currently booked on a cancelled Rotterdam voyage may select an equivalent sailing in 2022 at the 2021 fare paid, or can select to receive a Future Cruise Credit of 110% of any cash paid.

Impacted guests can also request a full refund.
