HAL and Princess to cut Vancouver sailings in 2010

Date Posted: 02 Apr 2009
Category:
Holland America Line (HAL) and Princess Cruises have announced they intend to reduce their sailings from Vancouver next year.

The move comes soon after Carnival Cruises said it would cut the number of services offered from the Canadian port, reports CBC.ca.

It is expected that the cancelled sailings will be redirected to Seattle.

Peter Xotta, of the Port of Metro Vancouver, said that switching to the US city would be cheaper for American travellers.

"The economic conditions are forcing them to make some drastic decisions around where to deploy their vessels ... and how they can keep them full of passengers that are going on holiday," he commented.

HAL and Princess both operate cruises to worldwide destinations including Alaska, Asia and South America.

Recently, HAL launched new electronic cruise documents that aims to be both environmentally-friendly and more convenient for passengers.

What our customers say

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
