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.

Cruise the Douro to explore the scenery and culture of Portugal

Enjoy an all-inclusive river cruise through Portugal and admire the vineyard-clad landscapes and traditional towns of the UNESCO-listed Douro Valley, one of the oldest wine-producing regions of the world.

Sample regional delicacies and enjoy wine tastings as you step away from the main tourist hotspots to explore such attractions as the UNESCO-listed city of Salamanca and the medieval town of Figueira Castelo de Rodrigo.

You’ve seen the Mateus Rosé wine label, now visit the 18th-century Casa de Mateus Palace, and round off your cruise with a tasting in a port wine cellar in Oporto…
