Emerald Cruises, parent company to Emerald Waterways
and Emerald Yacht Cruises, has announced their first ever Super Earlybird promotion on 2022 sailings. The brand is seeing strong demand for the 2022 cruise season, and this special promotion offers guests the best savings—and an extra incentive to book early. The Super Earlybird offer features European and Southeast Asia river cruises as well as their recently announced yacht cruises to sail on the Mediterranean, Red and Adriatic seas.
Guests who book their 2022 European or Southeast Asia river cruise, and pay in full 12 months prior to departure, will receive the Super Earlybird savings
on select sailings of an extra 10% off the cost of their booking in addition to the following current offers:
- For all European sailings, guests can chose up to free, roundtrip air or a savings of up to $2,500 per couple depending on length of sailing and cabin category;
- For Southeast Asia sailings, guests can choose from free, roundtrip air or a savings of $2,000 per couple depending on length of sailing and cabin category.
The Super Earlybird promotion also applies to Emerald Yacht Cruises’
2022 sailings in the Mediterranean, Adriatic and Red Seas aboard the 100-passenger Emerald Azzurra. Guests booking select suite or stateroom categories on 2022 cruises will receive up to 30% off the cost of the booking when paying in full 12 months prior to departure.
In addition, all bookings come with the line’s flexible booking policy that allows guests to defer travel plans and transfer to an alternate departure date or itinerary up to 60 days prior to departure with no Emerald Cruises fees. The Deposit Protection Plan (value $125 per person on river cruises and $200 per person on yacht cruises) is a complimentary inclusion in all bookings, and allows guests flexibility with their travel dates without having to worry about losing their deposits. Additionally, deposits have been reduced by 50% on all bookings.
Those looking for additional flexibility and security can purchase the new Platinum Protection Plan,
which provides coverage for guests who may fall ill or who’s travel plans are affected by Covid-19. The Platinum Protection Plan allows for 100% refund of cruise fare when enacted up to 31 days prior to departure, and 70% refund when enacted between 15 and 30 days prior. This plan can be added to eligible river cruise bookings for $295 per person and to Emerald Azzurra yacht sailings for $395.
All bookings must be made by December 24, 2020 and guests must pay the full balance no later than 12 months before departure to receive the Super Earlybird Discount.
