Seabourn Offers "Free" Air On 20 Spring 2010 Sailings

Well folks, blame your travel agent!

The infamous not really free "free air" has hit a limited number (20 sailings in the Med to be specific) 7 day sailings on Seabourn for Spring 2010.

The booking window is November 2 -30, so if it is attractive to you (and I really don't know why it would be - see below) next week is the time to act.

Here are the details:

"Free roundtrip airfare" from 28 North American gateways.

On the Seabourn Spirit and Seabourn Legend, if you book Category A - B3 economy class is included. In Classic or Owners Suite categories you get business class. Of course, you still have the option of taking a credit for the air...which should bring you right back to where you started.

On the Seabourn Odyssey, Category A – V6 gets you economy air and Penthouses through Grand Suites receives business class air.

Transfers between the airport and the pier, as with all Seabourn provided air, are also included.

If you have booked a one of the earmarked cruises already, Seabourn will make the promotion available to you...at the new pricing.

Please folks, remember what I wrote just days ago: Seabourn Offering Free Air - Is it Time? Does it Matter? Is it Free?

Goldring Travel is available to explain the promotion to you...and to assure that you receive the best pricing and value; not a gimmick insisted upon by travel agents that just want to "Keep it simple, stupid." My clients are not of that character and, I believe, not many of Seabourn's are either.

If there is an upside, now you can compare the "free air" offers from all of the cruise lines and make a quicker analysis.
