The date that goes on the booking paper work shows your age at the time of sailing. So you should be able to get the 55+ discount if you are 55+ on the sail date.

What discounts? I've never heard of a discount for Seniors on HAL? Is this something new. We are way over 55 and in all the years we have sailed with HAL have never received any kind of Senior's discount nor have any of our friends.
If a passenger will be 55 at the time of the cruise, is that taken into consideration when the cruise is priced or does one have to already be 55 when booking for any senior discounts to apply?
Not that I want to push the age thing , but if there are any discounts available, might as well take them!
Just inform your travel agent that your age will be over 55 at the time of sailing. This can readily be verified by the cruise line via your passport. You should be able to get the 55+ discounts of any cruise line. How old you are when booking should have nothing to do with it. It's your age at the time of sailing that matters.
