Holland America Line is offering all agents a special opportunity to travel aboard the MS Westerdam Bahamas cruise for free. For booking and depositing five new staterooms on any Holland America cruise that departs after May 1, travel sellers will receive a complimentary verandah stateroom and three-day getaway cruise. Bookings must be made by April 1.

“We want to be sure travel sellers are keeping cruises top of mind so we came up with a fun and rewarding incentive for top sellers,” said Richard D. Meadows, CTC and executive vice president of Holland America. “We think agents will be highly motivated and have set aside 150 verandah staterooms to give away.”

The winning trip departs from Fort Lauderdale on April 19 with a roundtrip itinerary that includes Nassau and the highest rated Caribbean port of call, Half Moon Cay. The getaway vacation features an island beach day, horseback riding and swimming excursion, guided AquaTrax watercraft tours, stingray adventure and family aqua park fun.

Holland America’s 13 ships make nearly 500 cruises, ranging in length from two to 108 days, and visiting 314 ports of call on all seven continents. Destinations include Antarctica, South America, Australia and New Zealand, Asia, the Caribbean, Alaska, Mexico, Canada and New England, Europe and the Panama Canal.

Full contest details and cruise giveaway forms, which must be completed by April 1, are available in the Travel Agent Headquarters on the Holland America Web site.

Also online, HAL invites travel agents to take advantage of their wide range of sales tools, which include free e-postcards, personalized PDFs, letterhead and promotional flyers.
