CruiseOne, Dream Vacations Declare "National Umbrella Drink Day"

blue dreamsicleCruiseOne/Dream Vacations and Cruises Inc., which are part of World Travel Holdings, have announced their first-ever National Umbrella Drink Day on Wednesday, February 24, 2016.

"This holiday is a fun way for us to give back to consumers, as well as to our signature charity Make-A-Wish," said Rosemarie Reed, vice president of marketing for CruiseOne/Dream Vacations and Cruises Inc. "After the success of last year’s Sandcastle promotion, our goal was to create an engaging event that could be duplicated year-after-year.”

To celebrate, the home-based travel agencies are hosting its popular Mystery Money promotion and giving away a free vacation. Consumers will receive up to $225 per cabin in onboard credit if they book a cruise through February 29, 2016, for travel between March 29 and December 31, 2016. In addition, CruiseOne/Dream Vacations and Cruises Inc. will donate $1 for every new booking made, up to $5,000, to its signature charity Make-A-Wish.

Consumers who post a photo of their favorite umbrella drink using the hashtag #UmbrellaDrinkDay on February 24, 2016, will be entered to win a three-night, all-inclusive Cancun vacation. In addition, CruiseOne/Dream Vacations franchisees and Cruises Inc. agents who post their photos and recipes using the same hashtag will be entered-to-win a $500 gift card. Internally, the corporate headquarters team will get in the spirit and host a National Umbrella Drink Day party for cruise and land suppliers on Wednesday, February 24.
