Holland America Line has just launched one of its most popular sales offered each year. The View & Verandah sale runs through Feb. 28, 2011 and features special savings on ocean-view and verandah staterooms.
Cruisers can save up to 50 percent on select cruises and also take advantage of reduced deposits plus free or reduced rates for third and fourth guests.
