Past passengers who have qualified for retired or veteran-status Military Personnel Benefits on previous sailings will no longer be required to resubmit requests for future voyages, but will have this discount automatically applied to their booking.
All cruise prices are per person, based on double occupancy and now include government fees and taxes.
