About CruiseOnSale.com - a Division of National Discount Cruise Co. (NDC)
As NDC Celebrates our 50th year in the cruise and travel industry, we not only feel a profound sense of accomplishment, but we are also reminded of how highly fortunate we have been in so many ways.
Over the last 50 years we have been witness to, and participated in, the phenomenal growth and popularity of cruising. I can't think of a more exciting industry in the world, and it's been a true honor to have gone along on this magical ride over the Seven Seas.
We are also gratified with the fantastic relationships we have developed with our industry partners; the cruise lines, tour operators, sales reps and agents, and all the hard working men and women who staff these grand floating palaces, and bring life-changing experiences and memories to millions of people. It's often said that travel is really just about people, and the cruise industry has the best people in the world.
Perhaps more importantly, however, are the connections we have enjoyed with our valued clients. There brings my staff and I no greater joy than when we hear from a satisfied customer whose cruise with NDC became the trip of a lifetime for them and their family. This is what motivates our hard working and professional staff, and the rest of the company to be the absolute best in everything we do. Thank you for trusting us with your valued business.
The future of cruising stands to be even better and more exciting, with exhilarating new trends in ships and destinations. We at NDC will continue to be with you every step of the way-alerting you to the latest trends, offering you informed and well researched suggestions, the absolute best pricing, and the friendliest and most knowledgeable service in the cruise and travel industry.
Together let's keep on cruising the high seas in style, luxury and fun!
Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Getting the Best Cruise Deals!
Many travelers are often misled about "promotional advertising" and "special discounts" that may appear in newspapers or direct mail advertising. Here's the scoop in what it all means.
50% -80% off the Second Passenger. This relates to cruise lines offering a 25% - 40% per person discount on a specific sailing.
Early Booking Discounts. Cruise lines offer discounts for booking early. The cruise brochure will feature names like "Breakthrough Rates". "Super Savers", "Love Boat Savers", which designates that there will be an upfront discount for booking early.
2-for-1 or Second Passenger Sails Free. Highly promoted and one of the best discounts available to consumers. Basically, this means 50% off per person on the full cruise fare.
Added Value. On select sailing's cruise lines will offer promotions such as free cabin upgrades, shipboard credits, pre or post hotel accommodations, free shore excursions. Special reduced airfares are a popular inducement to book early.
Senior Citizen Specials. Very popular with all cruise lines. One person in cabin must be at least 55 years or older to receive discounts.
Reduced Rate or Free Air Add-Ons. All cruise lines offer special reduced airfares in conduction with their cruises. Special promotions on select sailings may include Free Air or special discounts for Business Class airfare.
Group Discounts. Clubs, associations, family reunions, incentive and corporate meetings can take advantage of special group fares for booking as little as five cabins. Excellent way to earn a free cruise depending upon number of cruisers.
Re-positioning Cruises. Substantial savings are available on ships that re-position from the Caribbean to Europe or Alaska and back again. Leisure itineraries and extended stays at sea make re-positioning cruises very popular.
Alumni Discounts. To reward past cruisers and appreciation of loyalty to the cruise line, Alumni discounts offer additional savings over promotional cruise fares.
