Lux­ury Es­capes cruis­ing

Cruise Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

LUX­URY Es­capes has en­tered the world of cruis­ing, un­veil­ing a new Tours & Cruises pro­gram on its web­site.

The ini­tial mod­est range of itin­er­ar­ies in­cludes voy­ages to the Mediter­ranean, Cuba & the Caribbean, the Amer­i­cas, Spain & Italy and New Cale­do­nia.

Among the cruise lines Lux­ury Es­capes has part­nered with are Aza­mara, Cu­nard, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Nor­we­gian Cruise Line & Re­gent Seven Seas.

Some sail­ings are paired with ho­tel stays pre- or post-cruise, while other pack­ages in­clude short breaks in tourist cities such as New York and Las Ve­gas, fol­lowed by a voy­age.

The pro­gram boasts “ex­clu­sive spe­cial of­fers at in­sider prices” and builds on the suc­cess of Lux­ury Es­capes FIT pro­gram to des­ti­na­tions in­clud­ing Bali, Thai­land, Fiji, Viet­nam, Mex­ico, Europe and within Aus­tralia.

Pack­ages are heav­ily dis­counted, with a 16-night Euro­pean pack­age ex Barcelona on 12 Sep aboard Seven Seas Voy­ager cur­rently priced from $10,699ppts, but “val­ued up to $40,560”, pro­moted as a 74% saving on the cruise com­pany’s pub­lished rack rates and value of in­clu­sions.

The fine print in­di­cates the itin­er­ary com­prises of two backto-back sail­ings on Seven Seas Voy­ager (the sec­ond sail­ing from Civ­i­tavec­chia), mean­ing “the same cabin num­ber on both cruises is not guar­an­teed” and may re­quire chang­ing cab­ins.

Each sail­ing has a num­ber of cruise cab­ins to choose from and cus­tomers can make ‘In­stant Book­ings’ on­line, with a six­month in­ter­est free pay­ment op­tion of­fered through ZipMoney.
