Pearl Seas Cruises

Hawaii is an incredible vacation destination packed with pristine beaches, lush tropical rain forests, gorgeous waterfalls and spectacular volcanoes. Its front page shows the lowest price for the most popular cruise destinations without having to search (Caribbean Cruises: 3 nights from $259”), as well as Today’s Top Offers,” which might include half-off cruise fares, onboard credit, prepaid gratuities, and free or reduced airfare.

The sun, the islands, the variety of cultures and countries, and the chance to see ruins of ancient civilizations (choose a western Caribbean cruise that visits Cozumel in Mexico for this) makes this tropical area quite popular with vacation-goes from around the world.

European river journeys feature A&K-exclusive shore excursions, stays in boutique hotels in the heart of major cities, meals at reserved tables with your group of like-minded travelers — both on board and ashore — and sightseeing in Europe’s greatest locales, with the exclusive services of an A&K Resident Tour Director.

Also adding to the appeal: deals exclusive to Priceline, plenty of bonus amenities (examples include up to $1,000 in onboard credit, third and fourth guests sailing free, and $50 off shore excursions), no money down to book certain sailings, frequent onboard credit sales, an 800 number to call should you need assistance while booking, and a loyalty club that’s combinable with every cruise line’s loyalty program.

But many people don’t drink that much, and for them, unless it is a great promotional offer on the cruise fare with a small supplement over no beverage package, the drink packages are not worth it. Also, both parties in the cabin have to buy the package – so you both need to drink enough to get your money’s worth.
