Holland America Line's 'Anniversary Sale' offers a shore excursion credit of up to $400 per stateroom, a dining package, free or reduced fares for third and fourth passengers in a stateroom and 50% reduced deposits.

The sale is valid on a wide variety of the line’s summer 2015 through winter/spring 2016 voyages when travelers book an ocean-view or higher-category stateroom by June 1, 2015.

The sale is timed to HAL's 142nd anniversary this month.

In addition to the dining package, special third and fourth passenger fares and reduced deposits, travelers who book a suite also receive a bonus double shore excursion credit up to $800 per stateroom, a 100-minute Internet package and an Anniversary Beverage Card valued at $100.

With the Anniversary Sale, those who book an eligible cruise of seven to 10 days receive a shore excursion credit of $200 per stateroom ($100 per person), while those choosing cruises of 11 days or longer or Land+Sea Journeys receive a shore excursion credit of $400 per stateroom ($200 per person). The $100 beverage card ($50 per person) for suite guests can be used for alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks.

The dining package applies to the Pinnacle Grill, Canaletto and Tamarind. Passengers on Signature-class ships Eurodam and Nieuw Amsterdam receive a Dine Around Package with one reservation at all three restaurants, while those on all other ships receive one reservation at both the Pinnacle Grill and Canaletto.

The shore excursion credit and dining package are valid for the first and second passengers in the stateroom, while third and fourth guests qualify for special free or reduced fares. All booked cruises are eligible for 50% reduced deposits.

Among the itineraries available in the Anniversary Sale promotion are several 2015 summer through 2016 spring departures in Canada/New England, Panama Canal, Caribbean, South America/Antarctica, South Pacific, Australia/New Zealand, Asia, northern Europe, the Mediterranean, Alaska, Mexico and Hawaii, as well as some 'grand voyages' and Alaska Land+Sea Journeys.
