For Holland America Lines, you will need to scan the CD covers and email the track listing. We will submit it to HAL - sometimes they don't require the CD. The CD must be professionally packaged.

Here is an example (click here to view PDF) of how you should format a one-page view of your CD cover and information to submit to Holland America. If you need help creating such a document, contact us and we will help.
Passengers will sign a purchase slip using their ship ID card to purchase your product. You will be able to turn these slips in to the ship's retail store or purser in order to get your money. The ship usually retains a commission.
No, as stated in the guidelines, you can only sell products immediately after your show during your autograph session. On some ships your products may displayed in a retail store throughout your time on the ship.
