HAL President Antorcha said guidelines and procedures are working.
Holland America has announced that they will continue to follow the CDC's guidelines voluntarily. HAL President Gus Antorcha said, 'We will keep these best practices in place because we know they are working to protect our guests, our crew, our homeports, and the communities we visit.'
The company also announced that their mask mandate would continue, and the line will strongly encourage guests to get booster shots.
Also, the line is recommending higher-grade masks indoors (surgical or KN95). Holland America said crew members are vaccinated and receive a booster when eligible, adding that shipboard teams wear KN95 masks at all times.
