Holland America Line is enticing travel sellers to book early for the December 2013 holiday and 2014 season with a sweepstakes tied to the launch of the line’s new “Explore 4” early booking promotion.
Explore 4 focuses on four add-on exclusives — a free signature beverage package or beverage card; a free specialty restaurant dinner; free or reduced fares for third and fourth guests in the same stateroom; and 50 percent reduced deposits — for guests on select December 2013 holiday cruises and 2014 sailings. Guests can receive all four offers when booking a qualified itinerary by Oct. 15, 2013.
With the sweepstakes in full swing, travel sellers who make Explore 4 bookings by Oct. 31, 2013, will automatically be entered into a drawing for the chance to win one of 48 prizes, including four Grand Prize cruises, four exciting culinary experiences and Microsoft Surface™ tablets.
Four entrants will win a seven-day cruise for two in 2014 in a verandah stateroom to the Caribbean, Alaska, Europe or on the January “Dancing with the Stars: at Sea” Champions Cruise.
Four additional winners will receive prizes related to Holland America Line’s shipboard culinary initiatives. One lucky agent will win a private, in-home dinner prepared by Holland America Line’s Master Chef Rudi Sodamin for the travel seller and their top 10 Mariners.
The other three experiences include a trip for two to New York City with air and two nights in a hotel. and either an exclusive, behind-the-scenes tour of Culinary Council member Jacque Torres’ new chocolate factory and a $250 gift voucher for his award-winning confections; a dinner at Sirio Maccioni’s world-famous Le Cirque restaurant; or dinner at one of Culinary Council member David Burke’s seven unique restaurants.
As a way to deepen the connection between the fleetwide Digital Workshop Powered by Windows that offers complimentary technology classes, Holland America Line will also give away 40 Microsoft Surface™ tablets across the United States and Canada.
