PROTECTION PLAN (Optional):
CPP Standard Plan
Our Standard Cancellation Protection Plan (CPP
Standard Plan) will allow you, for any reason, to provide written
cancellation up to 24 hours prior to scheduled cruise or cruisetour
departure and receive a refund equal to 80% of the applicable
cancellation fee (90% if you purchased our CPP Platinum Plan). In
addition, Holland America Line (HAL) automatically assumes an
additional US$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, is
administered by Holland America Line Inc., and may not be available
for purchase in some locations outside the U.S. and Canada; 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.
CPP Platinum Plan
Our Platinum Cancellation Protection Plan (CPP
Platinum Plan) enables you to supplement the CPP Standard Plan with
insurance coverage and travel assistance services as well as
increase your refund amount to 90% for cancellations made more than
24 hours prior to departure. The CPP Platinum Plan provides you with
the following insurance benefits and services, in addition to the
CPP Standard Plan benefits and larger refund:
- Trip Cancellation coverage provides
protection if you or a traveling companion must cancel for a
covered reason during the 24 hours prior to scheduled departure.
The plan reimburses your non-refundable cancellation charges or
increased occupancy charges (if a traveling companion cancels)
imposed by HAL.
- Trip Interruption coverage provides
protection if your trip is interrupted after departure due to a
covered reason. The plan reimburses your unused (determined in
the case of your cruise or cruisetour on a pro rata basis),
non-refundable land or sea expenses prepaid to HAL, airfare paid
to return home and certain additional expenses up to $100/day.
Maximum benefit is 150% of your cruise/cruisetour cost.
- Trip Delay coverage provides reimbursement
for reasonable additional accommodations and traveling expenses
incurred to rejoin the trip in progress when you are delayed for
more than 12 hours, due to covered reasons. Maximum benefit is
US$1,000; not to exceed US$100/day.
- Emergency Evacuation coverage will pay the
necessary costs of transportation, medical services and medical
supplies if, due to a covered medical reason, you must be
transported to medical facilities during your cruise or
cruisetour. Maximum benefit is $50,000.
- Medical Expense coverage reimburses up to
$10,000 for medical and emergency dental expenses incurred as a
result of an injury or sickness that first manifests itself
during your cruise or cruisetour.
