Holland America Line, represented in the UAE by Discover the Word, has announced a Middle East cruise special called Ready Set Sail, with savings of up to AED3,500 on cruises booked between June 2017 and March 2018.

The special applies to all stateroom categories and includes cruise itineraries for Europe, Asia, Alaska, South America, the Caribbean and Hawaii. Passengers will be given pre-paid gratuities and US $500 in on-board spending for free.

Those booking a suite or above will receive these benefits, including a US $100 internet package.

Rosemary McNulty, ?Director – Middle East AGCC at Discover the World, expects the promotion to be popular with Middle East cruise passengers, who tend to book the best cabins, and cruise predominantly in the European cruise market.
