Seabourn Inaugural Celebration: Additional $1,000 Per Suite Savings! - Clarification

Seabourn has just announced that it is offering an additional $1,000 per suite savings on all 50 of its 2009 Mediterranean 7 day sailings on the Seabourn Legend, Seabourn Spirit and even the Seabourn Odyssey!  This is combinable with Early Booking, Onboard Savings and Sail-and-Stay fares.  Clarification:  I have received a number of emails with confused clients.  This offer applies to any "EBS" (Early Booking Savings) prices noted in any brochure or email you may have received.  These are almost never 50% off fares.  So if you have previously booked with a 50% off fare, you do not want to use this promotion because the net fare will be higher than what you are already booked at.

They are also combinable with any complimentary Ensemble Tours I may be able to offer you!

This promotion cannot be combined with Grand Voyage, Combination Savings, or Club Signature Value fares. Clarification:  If you are booked with any of those three fares, you are receiving a 50% off discount already.  As noted above, you already have a better deal.  (For those thinking of splitting up your 2 week or longer cruise to use this promtion:  Don't!  I have priced some two week sailings as back-to-back sailings to see if it was a better deal and it is not.  So if you are booked for a 14 day cruise which is a combination of two seven day sailings, you probably have a lower rate already. 

HINT:  Your best deal still is to cruise with a 50% off fare discount and/or for two weeks or longer!!!!

So if you don't think the present economy allows you to take a two week cruise, consider a seven day cruise at an incredible price.  If you haven't tried Seabourn before, or if you have a 5% onboard booking discount waiting to be used, this is an excellent time to plan a short reprieve.  If you are not sure, please read this:  http://goldringtravel.blogspot.com/2008/09/seabourn-food-wine-cruise-needed-now.html.
