Free internet tops Cruise Week deals

/, Cruise News/Free internet tops Cruise Week deals

National Cruise Week is approaching – it’s just over three weeks away – and the lines are falling over themselves to come up with special deals that will stand out from the rest.
Royal Caribbean set the ball rolling with $100 onboard credit per cabin for cruises booked between September 21 and 29.
Passengers can put the money towards spa treatments, excursions, or bookings in the ships’ speciality restaurants. But the deal is for a limited number of cruises between October 1 and December 31 and only for guests booking a balcony cabin or better.
Celebrity Cruises will throw in a complimentary drinks package worth $50 per day on selected sailings in Europe, the Caribbean and Alaska next year – again for balcony cabins. There will also be reduced fares for flights.
More intriguingly – and appropriately for a company called Celebrity – they are offering an opportunity to join adventurer and broadcaster Ben Fogle on his first cruise next year. They are giving little information away yet, but it looks like it will be a trip to the Baltic.
Better yet is the Cruise Week package put together by Oceania Cruises. Free gratuities – worth up to £199 pp – plus $200 onboard credit per stateroom are offered on 14 sailings between March and September 2014. Perhaps they could settle on one common currency to make things less confusing.
The qualifying voyages include 10 Mediterranean sailings on the 680-passenger ships Nautica and Insignia, a 12-night South American cruise on Regatta, and a 14-night Tahitian Pearls voyage on the 1,250-guest Marina.
Setting an example that should be followed by all cruise lines, all of the time, Oceania will also throw in free unlimited internet access for Cruise Week bookings on the selected cruises.
I’ll be keeping a weather eye open for more Cruise Week deals over the next two or three weeks. Anyone else got good internet news for me?
