Default Holland America Wine Policy -

A lot of us have debated Holland America's new wine policy.

How about a very simple poll?

Will the new wine policy have any effect on if you will book your next cruise on Holland America?

Any and all comments are welcome, but please take the poll just one time.

CHEERS!

Gee, I wonder how this is going to turn out. I thought we might go a whole day without a new wine thread. I guess not.

Lorekauf - Maybe this will help quantify all the chatter.... I hope all "watchers" step up and vote. I really don't care how this ends, I would like to know what a larger sampling of people think.

Cheers!

I voted "No".

We are not among those people who take wine onto the ships.

I voted "no" because wine is not important enough to me to affect my choice of cruise line.
However, I fully support the position of those who are upset because wine is important to them. You did not include this group of cruisers with a third option in your poll so the results will not be totally accurate.
Since there was no third option in the poll,let me offer another vote here.
No, but---------

I voted NO, the only things that effect my decision as to which cruise to book are:

1) specific itinerary (which includes ports visited, date of cruise, and length of cruise)

2) price

I voted NO because the wine policy in itself is not a big deal to us. I have booked with another cruise line for next year because when I added up all the changes over the last couple of years my wife and I thought it was time to try something else.

I voted NO as our next cruise will be Alaska. Now, if it was a Med or NZ cruise, we might also consider the wine policy along with itinerary, ship and price when deciding which cruise.

Ditto!

Our upcoming cruises booked on other lines are not available on HAL either due to the date or the itinerary or both.
