The cruise lines are into “Wave Season,” the time of the year when they typically sell the most cruises. And it is when they offer all kinds of promotions. Now, at AllThingsCruise, we typically do not feature cruise line fare sales. There are simply too many to keep track of.
However, we do want you all to be aware that this is the time of year that you should be booking if you are seriously planning a voyage later in the year. Here is just one example:
Celebrity Cruises is offering some lucrative perks to customers who book a voyage by Jan. 27.
The line’s new 123 Go! promotion, which kicked off Monday, allows customers to choose from one of three options:
– A free Classic Beverage Package for two, a feature that normally would cost $616 for a seven-night cruise. Celebrity’s Classic Beverage Package includes soda, juices, premium coffees, teas, beers up to $5 per serving, spirits, cocktails, frozen drinks and wines by the glass up to $8 per serving.
– Free gratuities for staff, up to $210 per cabin on a 7-night sailing.
– Up to $300 per cabin in on-board credits that can be applied to the cost of shore excursions, specialty dining, wine tastings, spa treatments and other on-board purchases. The total amount of on-board credit available depends on the length of the cruise.
Customers booking a cruise on one of the five Celebrity ships sailing in Europe in 2013 can choose two of three options, the line adds.
