Holland America Summer Sailings Update

Holland America Line has updated their summer cruise schedule to Europe.

They have canceled all additional sailings and they are also moving back the launch of their new ship Rotterdam.

Holland America Line has canceled the remainder of the summer 2021 European sailings for two of their cruise ships, Nieuw Statendam and Volendam. This affects cruises that were scheduled to depart from September through November.


In addition, after an expected on-schedule delivery from the Fincantieri shipyard July 30, Rotterdam will remain in non-guest operations until its September 26 cruise from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Plans for Rotterdam’s naming ceremony are being finalized.

Guests who are currently booked on these Nieuw Statendam and Volendam departures will automatically be moved to a 2021 cruise on Eurodam in the Mediterranean, beginning with the August 15 cruise through the October 30 transatlantic crossing. They will also receive a $100 Onboard Spending Credit per person.

Guests also have the option to move to an equivalent cruise in 2022 at the 2021 fare or receive a Future Cruise Credit of 110% of any cash paid that will be placed in the guest’s loyalty account.

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

Any guest on one of the canceled cruises also can request a full refund of all monies paid to Holland America Line.
