Q. What are Employee Network Cruise Perks?
A. In a nutshell, the Employee Network Cruise Perks program is the best way to receive fantastic rates and exclusive value-added amenities and perks on cruises and land vacations. Employee Network members, along with their families and friends, will receive exclusive perks, savings opportunities, and special amenities on leading cruise lines like Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Cunard, Norwegian, Disney, Princess, Carnival, and Holland America, as well as with many luxury and river cruise lines....all with the friendly service that you expect and deserve! Because we are part of the world’s largest seller of cruises, you are guaranteed to receive the lowest promotional cruise fares available anywhere – sometimes even lower than what the cruise lines charge clients on a direct-book basis - but never more!
All customary booking fees are waived for Employee Network Members! There are also no processing or administrative fees. You will never pay a penny more than necessary for booking your cruise or land vacation with CruiseOne - Karber & Associates.
We are so confident that you’ll love your vacation, we even offer the cruise industry’s only double Price & Satisfaction Guarantee. Details are available from your Vacation Specialist or on the homepage of this website. You’ll receive our award-winning attentive personal service and this exclusive Price & Satisfaction Guarantee - without paying a dime more for your vacation!
Q. The homepage mentions getting up to $200 off CruiseOne Shore Excursions. Can you explain?
A. Sure. For most ocean cruises, once you arrive at one of the ports of call, you will want to do something fun, safe, and with a group. A shore excursion is the answer – and they are the best way to fully experience the destination! That’s where we come in. CruiseOne partners with leading tour operators around the world through our vendor, Shore Excursions Group. Depending on the type of stateroom you book, and the sailing length of your cruise, you will receive a excursion discount credit of up to $100 to use towards any CruiseOne shore excursion you choose. And you can DOUBLE that excursion credit by booking a cruise of 10 nights or longer! And the land portion of any CruiseTours you book counts toward your total cruise length. For example, if you purchase a 10-night Alaska CruiseTour, you will have earned the double discount – or $200! Remember - these excursion discount credits are on top of all of the other perks we are offering to you!
If your traveling party books more than one cabin, each cabin will qualify for an excursion discount credit (up to 7 cabins). Cruise groups of 8 or more cabins typically have other special amenity packages that take the place of the excursion credits. We specialize in assisting family groups, company cruises, wedding cruises, etc. and will be happy to provide you with the best group cruising values available!
So, how do you know how much Shore Excursion credit you will receive? Here is a table showing the details:
Purchase a cruise at least 10 nights in length and get DOUBLE the offer of a typical 7 night cruise!
Q. What if I purchase a resort package, a Disney World resort package, a land tour, or other land vacation? How about a river cruise, or any other all-inclusive luxury cruises that already includes excursions?
A. If you purchase a land vacation, river cruise etc., we will simply substitute your excursion discount credit for a gift card. Your gift card will be mailed to you within 30 days after you return from your cruise. To qualify, your vacation purchase must total at least $1,000. Here is another table to show the details:
The total purchase amount is based on the base fare of your vacation, plus all taxes and fees. It also includes the recommended travel insurance, additional hotel stays, rental cars, or anything else that will end up as a line item on your invoice - EXCEPT AIRFARE. The total amount shown on the invoice you receive from us determines how much gift card value your vacation qualifies for. Just remember to subtract airfare, if applicable.
We will generally use a "per family" basis where it applies. If it does not apply, then a per room basis will be used (example: two friends are traveling and staying in one room.
Family units are generally figured as those with the same mailing address, regardless of actual relationship status. In the case of different families, friends, co-workers, etc., each would be figured on this same household principle, except where a per room basis applies.
Note: the calculation does include the travel insurance cost if it is purchased from any other vendor.
As mentioned, Airfare is not included – unless it is booked as part of a travel package through our vendor. Personal travel expenses, or any other vacation element not booked directly with CruiseOne - Karber & Associates is also not included in the calculation.
Q. Who qualifies for these perks?
A. All Employee Network members and immediate family qualify. Extended family or friends will qualify for Employee Network member perks as long the employee travels with them on the same vacation. These perks are not available to the general public!
The excursion discount credit or gift card offer is available for new individual reservations only. The excursion discount credit or gift card offer is not available for group reservations of eight or more cabins. However, other group perks may be available, such as onboard spending credits. Please ask for details.
When calling or emailing, please make sure to mention that you wish to use your Employee Network Member Perks. We won’t know unless you tell us!
