Cruise Industry News

Here are two of several things happening in the cruise industry:

1. Carnival Cruise Lines Extends Great Vacation Guarantee Offer

Carnival Cruise Lines is by far the world's largest cruise line, offering unforgettable vacations to people of all walks of life. And, they are willing to back that up with a sweet offer - the Great Vacation Guarantee.

This offer was launched earlier and is now being extended through 2015. What is it?

Carnival invites you to book one of their cruises and if within 24 hours of sailing you change your mind, the company will refund 110% of your expenses, provide complimentary transportation to get you home and even give you $100 shipboard credit to spend on a future cruise.

This is undeniably a sweet deal!

2. New Ships Setting Sail in 2014-2015.

Here is a list of new ships that your favorite cruise lines will debut for the remainder of 2014 and into 2015:

1. Costa Cruise Lines - Costa Diadema - November 2014 2. Royal Caribbean - Quantum of the Seas - November 2014 3. Royal Caribbean - Anthem of the Seas - April 2015 4. Norwegian Cruise Lines - Norwegian Escape - November 2015

Be among the first to sail on these brand new ships. Check with your Travel Professional for booking details.

Plan A Group Cruise

A group cruise is generally comprised of at least 8 cabins (number varies by cruise lines) with 2 or more passengers.

Group cruise ideas: family reunions, employee appreciation, club or organization fundraiser, girlfriends' getaway, couples' retreat, church outing, wedding, etc.

Reasons for planning a group cruise:

1. Cruising with a group is much more fun than cruising alone. I have done both and really prefer sailing with a group. Furthermore, there are perks to be had when cruising as a group.

Plan your group cruise today. Learn more about group cruises here.

**Group Cruise for April 6 - 10, 2015

Cruise Saving Tip

Here is something everyone loves - learning how to save a buck or two on their cruise vacation.

Tip: Book a Group Cruise With Carnival or Royal Caribbean!

Booking a group cruise requires having at least two people per cabin for eight cabins. As a "Thank you" for bringing the cruise line this extra business, you will get rewarded.

Carnival Cruise Lines or Royal Caribbean International will reward you by giving you credit equaling the average cruise fare paid by all members in your group. So, if you have 16 guests and the average fare works out to be $350, that is the amount that you have as a credit. As the group leader, you can apply this amount to your fare and end up paying a lot less than everyone else.

Now you know why booking a group cruise is so cool. You will save money. If you are interested in a group cruise, get with your travel professional, or let us help you.

Happy savings!
