Holland America Introduces Pricing Perks

Holland America Line introduced its Group Early Advantage pricing and amenities perks for 2007. The goal is to provide best value pricing as an incentive to get groups to book early for select sailings. Travel agents booking with Group Early Advantage can save their clients up to $1,700 per person, with an average savings of $200 per person on more than 50 sailings in 2007. For example, guests save up to $250 on the March 20 Rotterdam 16-day sailing in South America when booking an outside stateroom. On the Westerdam's 10-day Mediterranean sailing on July 20, 2007 guests save $400 when booking an outside stateroom or $900 off a deluxe veranda suite. Clients can save $1,110 off an outside stateroom on the Oct. 22, 2007 Rotterdam 25-day sailing between Venice and Rio de Janeiro. Also new for 2007, Holland America Line has added 15 new amenities agents can provide to clients as part of the Group Advantage Program, including the return of shipboard credits of up to $50 per person, a private premium wine tasting with the cellar master, Internet packages for online access, and a coffee card good for up to eight 12-oz coffees in the Explorations Café.
