CruiseOne and Cruises Inc. Launch Advanced Deposit Promotion

February 7, 2012 By: George Dooley Travel Agent

CruiseOne & Cruises Inc. have announced the debut of an innovative new consumer promotion that covers cruise deposits for travelers and allows them to book a trip with no money down. The companies are celebrating their 20th and 30th anniversaries, respectively.
Available on all new bookings now through February 29, the advanced deposit promotion is the first of an ongoing anniversary-themed sales blitz and will be marketed to consumers with “Buy Now, Pay Later” messaging. Consumers will be able to pay back the deposit at time of final payment.
“This is something we’ve been working on for quite some time and we believe it really says a lot about who we are as an organization, that we are willing to invest millions of dollars on behalf of our agents and their customers,” said Dwain Wall, senior vice president and general manager of CruiseOne & Cruises Inc., which together are part of World Travel Holdings (WTH).

“This specific offer gives our agents a distinct competitive advantage, eliminating potential obstacles in the booking process. Perfectly timed to our 2012 anniversaries, we’re basically saying to consumers, 'we’re celebrating – come cruise with us,'" Wall said.”
Under the terms of this promotion, CruiseOne & Cruises Inc. will cap the advanced deposit at $500 per cabin. The offer is not applicable on group bookings, river cruises or land vacations. 

It is combinable with most cruise line sales, including military rates, but may not be combined with restricted/non-refundable cruise line promotions. Travel must be booked at least 100 days before departure and fulfilled by December 31, 2012.
