MIAMI, FL (August 26, 2008) – For the past several years, Discovery Cruise Line has offered a special program for military personnel serving in the military overseas. To thank them for their service, Discovery offers those who served in Iraq or Afghanistan at any time during the preceding year a free Discovery day cruise to Grand Bahama Island.
Hanns J. Hahn, general manager of Discovery, said, “We want to recognize our military personnel and remind their families that the program is on-going. They can give them a gift during the holiday season or anytime during the year.”
The offer, which is valid until December 31, 2010, is for one free roundtrip cruise to Grand Bahama on Discovery Cruise Line including the cost of all meals served, including a seven-course gourmet dinner in our Grand Bahama Grill on board, all service charges, taxes and Bahamian departure fees. There are no additional costs involved.
To register a family member or friend of a loved one for the free cruise, simply register that person’s name online at DiscoveryCruiseLine.com and Discovery will mail a receipt and a holiday card for them to pass on to the service man or woman. The receipt will entitle the person to his or her complimentary Discovery cruise. The receipt should be presented at the pier at the time of sailing, together with a Military ID and a letter from their unit confirming the places of service during the preceding year. Advanced reservations are required.
Discovery sails daily from Ft. Lauderdale to Grand Bahama Island, departing at 7:45 am and arriving back at the pier at 10:00 pm. Each year Discovery carries approximately 160,000 passengers between the two destinations.
The cruise features all the amenities of a longer cruise in one fun-filled day, including an all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast as soon as you board and an all-you-can-eat buffet dinner on the return cruise. There’s also exciting casino action, live entertainment, outdoor games and activities, contests, spacious sun decks, a swimming pool, duty free shopping and more.
