Happy Veterans’ Day!
Did you know that as a member of the military, that you are often eligible for special discounts or shipboard credits with the various cruise lines? It’s true. Many lines salute our heroes by providing these discounts to active and retired members of the U.S. military. In some cases, active, reserve, and retired members of the U.S. military and the Canadian Forces may be eligible. Veterans may also be eligible, with some cruise lines offering special discounts to veterans with an honorable discharge who have served in an active war zone for any length of time or outside a war zone for at least two years. Spouses of actively deployed or deceased military personnel may also be eligible. In select cases, U.S. Armed Forces Personnel in the following branches may be eligible; Army Corps of Engineers, Central Intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation, National Security Agency (excluding Homeland Security), Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS), Secret Service, NASA Kennedy Space Center, NASA Johnson Space Center, the Department of Health and Human Services, and Cadets who are currently enrolled in a military academy with a scheduled entry date into the military. It never hurts to ask! If you qualify through your service to your country, don’t be shy to ask about any special discounts that might be available to you. Military personnel must present proper documentation at the time of booking to qualify for the special rates.
Thank you for your service to your nation!
