TOUR GUIDE vs TOUR LEADERTour Guide: 


Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 



Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 

Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all TripADeal travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured. 



Holland America Line - Cashless Onboard Cruise Ship: 
Our cashless society is designed to make your life on board as simple as possible. Once you have registered your credit or debit card(s) (Visa®, Mastercard®, American Express® and Discover®) you will be able to use your onboard account for shipboard purchases. You are welcome to pay for other individuals you are traveling with; this can be completed during your Online registration or at the Front Office on board. Credit or debit card number(s) will be securely sent to the ship in preparation for your cruise. Upon embarkation, we will seek an initial authorization on your card of US$60 per person for each day of your cruise, plus all onboard charges for all guests 18 years of age and older* (Please note: This authorization will not be placed against your credit or debit card(s) until the day of sailing.) 

At the end of your cruise, you will receive a final statement, and your card will be charged only for the actual amount of your purchases. Refunds for purchases of onboard products and services will be credited to your onboard account whether purchased prior to or during your cruise. Please have the credit or debit card(s) you registered with you and available for the duration of the cruise in case our shipboard staff needs additional information. 

Please inform your credit or debit card issuer in advance that your card will be used on a Holland America Line ship. This will help prevent delays in obtaining the authorizations; please note there may be multiple authorizations requested throughout your cruise. Some banks may keep the authorization in place for up to 30 days. Please contact the credit or debit card-issuing bank with questions regarding the length of time such authorizations remain on your account. 

If you do not want to use a credit or debit card, the ship will collect a cash deposit for all guests 18 years of age and older* at time of boarding in the same amount (US$60/ person/day). Please Note: With the cash option, you MUST bring enough cash to cover the $60/person/day account deposit. Failure to do so may forfeit your right to board. Any excess deposit will be refunded to you at the end of the cruise. Traveler’s checks may be cashed at the front office to make your deposit. Personal checks are not accepted on board.
