PROTECTION PLAN (Optional):
PLANS MUST BE
PURCHASED AT TIME OF RESERVATION
Cancellation Plan is
MANDATORY for ALL SINGLE CRUISERS.
For your personal vacation and financial
protection, it is required that single cruisers purchase insurance
when rooming with another person. This will ensure both
parties that they will be equally protected in circumstances where
one of the roommates must cancel. If your roommate cancels,
you will then have the option to either pay the single rate or
cancel your own arrangements without serious penalty.
The CPP Standard Plan will allow you, for any reason, to provide
written cancellation up to 24 hours prior to scheduled cruise or
tour departure and receive a cash refund equal to 80% of the
applicable cancellation fee (90% if you purchased our CPP Platinum
Plan). In addition, Holland America automatically assumes an
additional $500 of liability for lost, damaged or delayed baggage of
passengers who purchase the CPP Standard Plan still subject, however
to the limitations in our baggage policies. For example, we do not
cover losses while baggage is in the custody of airlines.
The CPP Standard Plan is not insurance; it provides no rights other
than those explained above. For example: It does not protect
double-triple-quad occupancy rates should one or more members of
your party cancel nor does it cover expenses or unused services due
to trip interruption.
The Platinum Cancellation Protection Plan (CPP Platinum Plan)
enables you to supplement the CPP Standard Plan with insurance
coverage and travel assistance services. The CPP Platinum Plan also
increases the cash refund amount for cancellations made more than 24
hours prior to departure. In addition to the CPP Standard Plan
benefits and the larger cash refunds, which are provided by Holland
America Line Inc., the CPP Platinum Plan provides you with the
following insurance benefits:
Trip Cancellation coverage provides protection if you must cancel
for a covered reason during the 24 hours prior to scheduled
departure. This coverage pays for forfeited, published,
non-refundable payments for unused arrangements of the cruise or
cruisetour portion of travel booked through Holland America (up to a
maximum of US $20,000 - higher limit applies to World Cruise).
Trip Interruption coverage provides protection if your trip is
interrupted after departure due to a covered reason. This coverage
pays for forfeited, published, non-refundable payments for unused
arrangements of the cruise or cruisetour portion of travel booked
through Holland America and additional traveling expenses to return
home (150% of your cruise/cruisetour cost, not to exceed US $20,000
- higher limit applies to World Cruise).
Trip Delay coverage provides reimbursement for reasonable additional
accommodation and traveling expenses incurred to rejoin the trip in
progress when you are delayed for more than 12 hours, due to covered
reasons (up to a maximum of US $1,000, accommodations subject to a
daily limitation of $100).
Emergency Medical Expense coverage pays up to $10,000 for medical,
surgical and emergency dental care in the event you become sick or
are accidentally injured while traveling; you must have first sought
medical care during the trip. Benefits payable will not exceed the
usual, customary and reasonable charges for similar services in the
geographic area in which the services were rendered. Various
expenses are excluded; for example, hearing aids, eyeglasses,
contact lenses, treatment arising from alcohol or substance abuse
are not covered.
Emergency Assistance coverage pays up to $50,000 for emergency
medical evacuation or transportation pre-approved and arranged by
the insurer's designated assistance provider.
Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption and Trip Delay coverages
generally apply in the case of covered medical reasons and listed
perils (such as bad weather) as stated in the Certificate of
Insurance. The pre-existing medical conditions exclusion will be
waived if the CPP Platinum Plan coverage is requested at time of
booking and paid for at time of deposit. The CPP Platinum Plan does
not cover amounts you pay for air travel or for other optional
programs (such as pre-cruise hotels).
The CPP Platinum Plan is only available for U.S. residents.
The CPP Standard and CPP Platinum Plans must be paid at time of
deposit and are non-refundable. Insurance may only be
purchased through Sovereign Cruises.
