virginholidayscruises.jpgStill time to take advantage of my 10 per cent discount deal with Virgin Holidays Cruises and save money on your next holiday at sea. It couldn’t be simpler – choose your cruise from Virgin’s website or glossy brochure and then mention my name when making your booking, in order to claim the saving.
There are dozens of different ships and hundreds of possible cruises – Virgin offer deals with everyone from Azamara to Windstar, Thomson to Carnival and Costa to Fred. Olsen. If you’re still not sure where to go, here are some suggestions:
There are last-minute vacancies throughout October on Royal Caribbean’s Grandeur of the Seas seven-night Spanish Mediterranean cruises from Palma, Majorca. Ports of call are Barcelona, Ibiza, Malaga and Gibraltar. Fares from £599 – discounted to £539 – including flights and transfers.
Take a nine-night Canaries cruise on Norwegian Jade from Barcelona to Madeira, Tenerife, Lanzarote, and Malaga, available from December through to March. Fares for the December 8 departure start at £499 – or £449 with the discount – to £679 (£611) for March 25, 2012, and include flights, plus up to $150 per cabin on-board credit and free dining in the La Cucina Italian restaurant, saving the $10 cover charge.
Big sister Norwegian Epic will be back in the Mediterranean next summer. Seven-night cruises from Barcelona to Naples, Civatavecchia (for Rome) Livorno (for Florence and Pisa) Villefranche and Marseille with balcony cabins from £683 instead of £759, plus up to $300 per cabin on-board spending money, and Virgin RockStar benefits included.
Want to get away in January or February, to Barcelona, Casablanca, Tenerife, Madeira, Malaga, Civitavecchia and Genoa? Then take an 11-night cruise in a balcony cabin on MSC Fantasia, with fares from £699 – reduced to £629.
No flying involved in the eight-night cruises on MSC Opera, from Southampton to Ijmuiden in the Netherlands, St Peter Port, Guernsey; La Coruna and Bilbao in Spain, and La Rochelle, France, next July and August. Fares from £719 (a saving of £79.90) include a FREE all-inclusive drinks package.
Also sailing from Southampton is Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas, operating three different itineraries of 11, 14 and 18 nights to the Mediterranean and the Canaries. Fares from £629 with the Captain Greybeard discount.
Finally, an extra-special deal on a cruise-and-stay package based in Jamaica and combining seven nights on an all-inclusive basis at the Sunset Jamaican Grande resort in Ocho Rios, with seven nights on Norwegian Pearl , cruising to Grand Cayman, Cozyumel, Miami and Great Stirrup Cay. Fares for the departures on December 15, 22 and 29, including flights with Virgin Atlantic and resort transfers, from £1,349 instead of £1,499.
With all-inclusive food, fabulous entertainment, and the widest choice of destinations, a cruise holiday is great value for money at the best of times – and now Captain Greybeard makes it even better.
All you have to do is call Virgin Holidays Cruises (0844 573 4398), or visit any one of their 60 travel shops in Debenhams and House of Fraser stores across the country during the next two weeks and mention “Captain Greybeard” when you make your booking. If, like me, you live in Hampshire, call in at Virgin’s new cruise-only travel agent on Westbrook Walk, just off the main high street in Alton.
The offer, valid for two weeks from September 24, applies to ANY European cruise (excluding P&O, Princess and Cunard bookings). The 10 per cent discount is off the full advertised price as per the Virgin Holidays website and does not apply to on-board gratuities, service charges or other expenses such as shore excursions or booking fees. The 10 per cent discount cannot be combined with any other offer or discount.
Bon voyage! Don’t forget to send me a postcard.
