Royal Caribbean Cruise Discount Promotion

We have entered the "Wave Season" in the cruise industry. This is the time of year, January through March, when most families book their cruise vacation for the year.

During this time, cruise lines offer competing incentives to attract customers. You can see what Royal Caribbean is offering now through February.

Cruise Industry News

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

1. Carnival Opens Bookings On The "Vista"!

Carnival's newest and biggest ship, Carnival Vista, will debut in Europe in 2016. The Vista will make several long sailings overseas, before its transatlantic voyage to the United States.

Carnival is currently inviting Carnival cruise fans to be among the first to explore this new and phenomenal ship. You can book an European itinerary aboard the Vista or plan to take the ride across the Atlantic Ocean.

Bookings can be made now. Contact your Travel Professional for more details, or ask us to help. Email me at

2. "Frozen" Arrives On Disney Ships Summer 2015

Have you heard the hype surrounding Disney's blockbuster movie, "Frozen"? The adventure continues.

Starting summer 2015, Frozen will arrive on Disney sailings. Expect to meet the cast, especially Olaf whose favorite time of year is summer.

Disney plans many magical "Frozen" moments aboard their ships, including sailings to Europe and Alaska.

Make plans to enjoy more of Frozen, this time on the high seas.

Plan A Group Cruise

A group cruise is generally comprised of at least 8 cabins (number varies by cruise lines), each 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.

Cruise Saving Tip

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

Tip: Choose Carefully When to Shop

One of the thrills of a cruise ship vacation is the opportunity to buy duty-free goods. You can buy items onboard the ship or in ports of call. The key is to get the best bang for your bucks.

Here are two things to remember about shopping on a cruise ship vacation:

1. Identify items you want in the ship's shops, but do not buy them right away. When you arrive at your port of call, visit the "recommended" shops and search for the same items. You will sometimes find a better price in the port.

2. Never buy an item onboard the ship during the first couple of days. Wait until the ship is docked or when you have a day or two of the cruise remaining. More often than not, prices of items sold aboard the ship are discounted on port days and also just before the cruise ends.

Happy saving!
