The pax who will actually make the delayed sailing are being offered some nice perks for a future cruise:

"Sail the revised 6-day itinerary and receive a Holland America Line future travel discount in the amount of 25 percent of the cruise fare paid in addition to a per person ship board credit. Amount based on cabin category purchased as follows:
Inside staterooms (categories NN-I): $150 per-person
Outside staterooms (categories H-C): $175 per-person
Deluxe verandah staterooms (categories BC-A): $200 per-person
Superior verandah suites (category SS): $250 per-person
Deluxe verandah suites (category S): $350 per-person
Penthouse verandah suites (category PS): $500 per-person
3rd/4th guests sharing stateroom: $75 per-person"

The ship board credit is generous, but I would think the credit would be for the current sailing and not a future sailing that may or may not be in the cards for many pax. Are those who will sail on this cruise get anything for this sailing?

Jolly,

There seems to be some confusion. It sounds to me like the compensation is strictly for a future cruise. However, others think that the 25% discount is for a future cruise and the shipboard credit based on category is for the current cruise.

Has anyone spoke to HAL and determined which is correct?

The literal interpretation of the statement is that the shipboard credit is toward a future cruise. Don't want to see those sailing to think they are getting the credit for this sailing. If in fact is meant to say the credit is for the current cruise then HAL should send their PR manager back to school for some basic English language training.

However, most others think that the shipboard credit is for the current cruise. Isn't ambiguity wonderful?:rolleyes:
