Free Bahamas cruise for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans

Discovery Cruise Line is offering a free one-day cruise from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, to Grand Bahama Island to all U.S. military who have served or are currently serving in Iraq or Afghanistan. The offer is good through 2007. Meals, taxes, service charges, and fees are all included (you'll need to get to Ft. Lauderdale on your own). Go to the Discovery website (www.discoverycruise.com) and fill out a simple form. You'll need to make a reservation and present your military ID to take advantage of this offer.

All U.S. military personnel should keep in mind that a number of cruise lines (including Carnival, Celebrity, Disney, Holland America, MSC, Norwegian, and Royal Caribbean) offer discounts to active military and, in some cases, to retired and reserve military as well. The website www.MilitaryCruiseDeals.com is a good place to start looking.

My new eBook, "How to Save Money on Cruises -- Part II: Tracking Down Discounts"
(http://www.smartercruising.com/trackingdowndiscounts/index.html) is another good way to find out about military and other types of occupational cruise discounts, as well as those for families, singles, and many others.
