Compensation for price drop right after final payment? in Holland America Line Posted August 31, 2018 Greetings, We had booked a cruise on board a HAL ship a few months ago and have just made final payment. The day after final payment, the price dropped by almost $400 per pax. This hasn't happened to us on HAL for a while. In the past, (when priced dropped after final) we have been given OBC's, and more recently, a credit for a future cruise, but that was a couple years ago. Can anyone tell us what the HAL current practice is for providing any compensation for price drops after final payment? These drops really discourage folks from booking ahead and I'm sure the cruise line would rather keep people booking months ahead, but given the downturn in the cruise industry as recently reported, they should be doing something to take care of their returning passengers when the price drops after final. Thanks for any recent information anyone can provide on HAL's current practices. Cheers Cruisepucks:cool: There isn't a downturn in cruising. It's the opposite. Most, if not all, of the cruiselines are building new ships to try to keep up with the demand.
