Holland America Line reports that Westerdam’s Saturday, February 15, disembarkation that had been scheduled for Shanghai, China, will instead take place in Yokohama, Japan. Guests who have purchased their air through Holland America Line’s Flight Ease will have their return flights rebooked to depart from Tokyo rather than Shanghai at the cruise line’s expense. Guests with independent travel arrangements should rebook their air to depart from Tokyo’s Haneda Airport or Narita Airport no earlier than 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 15, the cruise line said. Guests with Holland America Line post-cruise hotel arrangements in Shanghai will be refunded to the original form of payment.
Additionally, Holland America Line said that it will cover up to $250 per person in airline change fees for carriers who are charging fees for those guests who sail and who are required to modify their flights as a result of this change. Proof should be sent to Guest Relations and compensation will be issued in the form of an onboard credit. Send to:
