Hi Rachel! Good to hear from you again. It’s always a pleasure helping you with your cruise plans. As far as your post here, I’m not quite sure what you’re asking. I know you’re booked on Holland America coming up in March- do you have questions about this reservation? Or are you looking for a new cruise?
