Cruises feature three days and nights at Hamilton
Seattle, Wash., June 19, 2014 – Holland America Line is returning to the pink sands and pastel-colored skyline of Bermuda on seven-day cruises aboard ms Veendam. Sailing roundtrip from Boston, Mass., six departures will sail in May, June and July, and feature three days and nights at Hamilton, the country’s capital known for its gorgeous beaches and abundance of golf courses.
Carrying just 1,350 guests, Veendam offers an ideal mid-size ship experience in Bermuda that enables the vessel to dock at Hamilton in the center of town. The seven-day voyages spend a day at sea after departing Boston and arrive at Hamilton mid-day with enough time for guests to go ashore and enjoy the town. The ship then spends three nights alongside, where guests can experience local nightlife and dine ashore, if desired. Veendam departs Bermuda in the afternoon of the final day in Hamilton, with a day at sea before arriving back at Boston.
“We know our guests will be excited to see us cruise again to Bermuda in 2015,” said Richard Meadows, Holland America Line’s executive vice president of sales, marketing and guest relations. “By extending the call to three nights, guests can have extensive time to experience the island while still enjoying the award-wining service and amenities that Holland America Line is known for.”
With three days in port, guests will have multiple opportunities to experience Hamilton’s British charm, cultural heritage sites and world-renowned beaches on a variety of shore excursions. From the ship, guests can take a short walk to Front
Anticipated disruption to flight operations at German airports as a result of a strike by the ver.di union on March 27, 2014
Due to a strike that the airport operations staff trade union ver.di called for this Thursday at Frankfurt, Munich, Cologne-Bonn, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Hanover and Stuttgart airports, we are expecting there to be significant disruption to flight and check-in operations on March 27, 2014.
For this reason, Lufthansa will cancel almost all flights within Germany and Europe at Frankfurt and Munich which were scheduled for tomorrow in the period up to 14:00 hours (2:00pm local German time) . Exceptions to this will be Germanwings flights as well as flights by our regional subsidiaries Lufthansa Cityline, Eurowings and Air Dolomiti which we expect to be able to operate. However there could still be delays or individual cancellations to some of these flights. Long-haul flights to and from Frankfurt and Munich airports will also be affected by cancellations.
Lufthansa is asking all passengers to check on the status of their flight at LH.com before setting out on their journey as details of the timetable and rebooking options are available there. A continuously updated list of the cancelled flights will be also available in the ‘Current flight information’ section of our website. Individual flights can be checked under ‘Flight status’. Lufthansa passengers who have saved their mobile phone number in their customer profile will be notified about relevant cancellations by text message.
As much as possible, passengers from cancelled flights will be rebooked to alternative flights. Customers affected by a flight cancellation can rebook free of charge or have their ticket refunded.
In addition, a goodwill policy applies to passengers to/from Frankfurt, Munich, Cologne-Bonn, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Hanover and Stuttgart whose flight has not been cancelled.
Passengers travelling within Germany whose flights have been cancelled because of the strike can use Deutsche Bahn trains and issue their own rail voucher either under ‘My Bookings’ on LH.com or at a Lufthansa airport check-in machine.
