This is a short post to make you guys aware of the “free cruise” offer for active and veteran military, first responders, law enforcement officers and educators. See more details on the offer by clicking this link
Main program details from the website:
- Must be a verified member through the GovX ID platform
- Free Ocean View Upgrades through October 4, 2022
- Up to 2 Qualified Members per stateroom
- To book two members in the same stateroom, please call our reservation center
So, if both spouses (or travel companions) in the stateroom qualify based on their employment, they can cruise at a very little cost. And through October 4th, you can get an oceanview stateroom. Keep in mind that you are still responsible for taxes and port charges.
This is a 2-night sailing to Bahamas, so basically a booze cruise. Still, if you have some extra miles you can use for flights, it’s possible to put together a fun/inexpensive trip. The ship leaves from Palm Beach, Fl. I don’t know anything about this cruise line, but you can read some recent reviews here
I think as long as you don’t expect Disney-type quality, you should be just fine. And if you end up hating it, well, it’s not a big loss. Especially if you are planning to come to Florida for vacation anyway. Overall, I think it’s a fun little promo that will create some much needed buzz for Margaritaville cruise line. Don’t forget that you can potentially get a free Carnival cruise via status match.
