How to Book a Cruise with all Military Cruise Discounts applied
You may book directly here on our website. Our cruise search engine is configured to reveal the cruises with the lowest military discounted rate plus our extra discount is built right in. Need to book more than one cabin? Just book the first one and then start again to book the next one.
If you want to confirm that the rate shown online was the lowest rate available to you and to get our additional discount applied, you can call us at 1-866-9-MILITARY (866-964-5482) to book the cruise with you over the phone.
Be sure to tell the agent that you or a family member is part of the Armed Forces. We will then help you find the right cruise for you at the very best price.
If the cruise line is offering its own military rate, you will get that rate for as many cabins as they allow. Even if no veteran and military discounts are offered by the cruise line, we will apply our discount to the other cabins. If you already booked with the cruise line directly before you found us and have not yet paid in full, call us anyway. We might be able to get a discount applied for you.
What kind of military cruise discounts do we offer?
- We simply offer a discount off the cruise lines' lowest rate, usually about 5%.
So for a $4000 cruise fare, our discount would be $200. It comes out of our commission, so there’s not much more to give. (That’s why the claim of 80% off is soooo ridiculous.)
- And we offer free travel insurance for kids and discounted at around 50% off for adults, based on passengers' ages.
- Yes, you ALSO get any and all past guest perks, amenities, onboard credits, promos offered by the cruise line - anything you would get by booking direct...PLUS OUR EXTRA MILITARY DISCOUNT!
How are our military discounts on cruises calculated?
The cruise lines often have anywhere from 3 to 20 different fare codes we could use to price out a cruise.
Some are higher but come with a beverage package or other amenities.
When you book on our site, our site automatically uses the lowest available fare code offered by the cruise line for that cruise.
Then, our site automatically subtracts a discount from that fare - and reveals this new discounted price to you.
If you want to get the perks that are offered with higher-priced fare codes, you’ll need to call us to book. And we’ll help you use that fare code, and then still get our discount applied.
How do you get all military deals or discounts applied to your cruise booking?
You don’t have to even try. We do that for you in three ways.
- First, our online booking engine is configured to check for all military discounts from the cruise line.
- Then our system automatically adds an additional discount from us.
- Finally, one of our expert agents personally looks at every booking to make sure it has been done correctly, and all perks and discounts that could apply, have been applied.
- Once we get a confirmation from the cruise line with your booking, we check that carefully to make SURE they’ve got all our discounts and benefits applied.
You know what - we do even more than that. So, you are in good, capable hands with us. You don’t need to worry about a thing. We got this.
This is how we save you money even after your cruise is booked and paid for:
Between the time you book your cruise and your final payment date, we encourage you to check the rates offered by the cruise line. If it is less than what you paid, we will contact the cruise line and request that they re-fare your cruise to their new lower rate, upgrade you to a higher category, or provide an onboard credit for the difference.
Cruise lines do NOT always honor the request but we always try! Please note, Cruise lines will NOT re-fare after the final payment date and many of the new non-refundable deposit fares restrict making fare changes after booking! After the final payment date, cruise lines will not adjust the rates or provide onboard credit but may offer an upgrade at their discretion.
The lower rate will NOT qualify for our online discount.
