Introducing The A+ Savings Program for Teachers and Educators.


We know first hand the value and important role teaching plays in our education. Members of our staff are educators. We also know that after month's of hard work, a well deserved vacation should be fun, exciting and value-packed. Because our business is predicated on serving you and to building a long-term business relationship that will go on for years, our philosophy is to always provide you the highest level of service and the greatest value possible. 

If you are a teacher and educator you can get great cruise discounts and special offers.

All bona fide full-time teachers, professors and instructors engaged as full time teaching staff are eligible for these offers.

You must be able to show proof of employment ( Picture ID, letter etc. ) at a recognized educational center for a minimum of 20 hours per week and for a minimum of one school year.

This offer may also be available as part of a cruise lines' "last minute" promotion. In that case the early booking requirement will be waived.

No Hidden Fee's. 

Some travel providers may charge extra or hidden fee's to help offset their expenses. Such fee's may include cancellation, refund, vacation planning, research, reservation  "handling" changes.. These can amount to added costs from as little as $10 to as much as $50.  There are no hidden or extra charges when you book you cruise vacation with Cruise Direct Online. Of course normal deposit, refund, cancellation and processing fees that the cruise line charges and are part of the passenger contract will apply. These fee's go to the cruise line and Cruise Direct Online does not benefit from these charges whatsoever.
