HOLLAND AMERICA GROUP RESIGNS USTOA ACTIVE MEMBERSHIP

 NEW YORK (April 17, 2024) –  Following an assessment of its current business model, Holland America Group is no longer a USTOA Active Member effective April 4, 2024.  Accordingly, Holland America Group’s brands Princess Cruise Lines, Holland America Line and Seabourn Cruise Line, no longer participate in the USTOA $1 Million Travelers Assistance Program.

“Travel advisors should be aware that purchases of cruise line tours of Princess Cruise Line, Holland America Line and Seabourn Cruise Line products made prior to April 4, 2024, shall continue to be protected under the USTOA $1 Million Travelers Assistance Program. Client deposits and payments thereafter will not be covered by the USTOA program,” advises Terry Dale, USTOA president & CEO.
