Insight Cruises occasionally charges more than Holland America for the same cabin category because our cruise pricing includes several parties, meeting room space, plus a pair of Tour Leaders traveling with the group. Therefore, if you ask us to match a price you see on the website we will do so but we add a $150 pp Facility Fee plus a $75 pp Tour Leader Fee. See the TERMS & CONDITIONS section in the PRICING & TERMS tab for further information.
