Holland America Line said Friday it was making a short-term change to its cancellation policy, and will now allow guests to cancel their cruise or Alaska Land+Sea Journey departing through May 31.

Those cancelling cruises will receive a future cruise credit for another cruise in 2020 or 2021, the company said.

Guests who choose to keep their cruise plans on departures through May 31 will be given Onboard Spending Credit of as much as $200 per stateroom/$100 per person.

The company also said it was introducing its Book with Confidence program, which will allow guests who make a new booking by April 30 for itineraries departing on or before Oct. 15 to cancel for any reason. Guests who cancel will receive future cruise credit in the amount of any cancellation fees applied. Cancellations must be made up to 30 days before departure, the company said.

Holland America Line is a division of Carnival Corp. and PLC.
