How our discounts work

On all cruises we set aside a number of cabins within each level at a discounted fare, with the highest discount of 35% for ocean cruises and 25% for river cruises available on selected levels. These cabins are sold on a first come, first served basis. As cabins are sold, the discount begins to reduce, and continues to reduce until those selected cabins are sold.

This means that the earlier you book, the higher the chance of securing a greater discount. Our price panels clearly show the full cruise price, along with the current discount fare.

Please note: During busy periods for holiday bookings, the early booking discount can reduce rapidly. We recommend that you book early to benefit from the best booking discounts and to secure your preferred cabin.

When promoting new cruises for the first time, we contact customers on our Advanced Registration list first, allowing then to secure the cabin of their choice and benefit from the best savings. Our brochures are then sent out to loyalty club members first, followed by past cruise goers and then everyone else.

Contrasts of the Caribbean and Central America…

Escape to the warmth of the Caribbean, cruising from one sun-soaked tropical island to the next, before contrasting the ancient Mayan ruins and dense rainforests of Central America with the skyscrapers and space-age attractions of the USA on this all-inclusive cruise to the Caribbean and Central America in 2025.

Begin with a classic transatlantic crossing pausing en route to visit Madeira. Enjoy relaxing days on board Spirit of Discovery, before exploring a string of colourful Caribbean islands, each teeming with exotic wildlife and fringed with golden beaches. From St Lucia, dominated by the iconic Les Pitons’ peaks, and colonial Bridgetown in Barbados, to laid-back Bequia and the Dutch Caribbean islands of Willemstad and Oranjestad.

Continue your voyage to Central America to visit UNESCO-listed Cartagena and Colón, near the Atlantic entrance of the Panama Canal. See the rainforests and banana plantations of Puerto Limón, white-sand beaches of Honduras and archaeological treasures of Belize City. While Progreso, on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, offers a gateway to the iconic Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza.

Cruise further into the Gulf of Mexico to the Texan city of Galveston, from where you can visit the world-renowned Houston Space Station with its NASA space craft. Follow the Mississippi River for an overnight stay in New Orleans, birthplace of jazz and renowned for its Creole cuisine and French Quarter, and visit Miami, Florida, and perhaps visit the famous wildlife-rich Everglades National Park.

Spirit of Discovery will make an overnight stop at Bermuda, where UNESCO-listed St George’s became an English settlement in 1612, and call at the scenic Azores archipelago on the return journey.

Your six included panoramic excursions will be in

  • Funchal, Madeira
  • Castries, St Lucia
  • Bridgetown, Barbados
  • Willemstad, Curacao
  • New Orleans, USA
  • Ponta Delgada, Azores

The Sky at Night with Dame Maggie Aderin-Pocock DBE A staple of British television, ‘The Sky at Night’ has brought the world of astronomy and space to our screens for over 65 years. Covering subjects such as black holes, neutron stars, satellites and space missions the show has become a cultural fixture featuring on stamps issued by the Royal Mail and even having a comet named after it. Dame Maggie Aderin-Pocock DBE is a space scientist and science educator. She has presented the programme since 2013 with Chris Lintott. Maggie also undertakes ground-breaking space science research and works to inspire new generations of astronauts, scientists and engineers and is a pioneering figure in communicating science to children.

Over two appearances on board, Maggie will give you an insight into her stellar career, the world of science and space exploration, and how she takes the most complex astrophysics and makes it accessible for the non-scientist. She will also tell you about the making of ‘The Sky at Night’, its long history, and how it continues to engage the audience with astronomy and space science.

You can also join Dame Maggie Aderin-Pocock DBE on Casablanca and the Canaries, departing February 13, 2025.
