As part of its 2010 Voyages of the Great Explorers series, Cruise West is offering guests a $2,500 VISA gift card, or, to help cut costs, passengers can choose to apply the $2,500 promotion to the total cruise fare. This offer is valid on 17 lengthy voyages (ranging from 10 to 19 nights) aboard the 60-suite Spirit of Oceanus – the cruise line’s premier ocean-going vessel.
As a leader in small-ship cruising, Cruise West is known for its close-knit cruising style that features onboard naturalists and educators, unique itineraries, and personalized shore excursions at every port (which are included in the cruise fare). On each voyage, passengers can experience less-commercialized ports, small towns, fishing villages, and numerous UNESCO World Heritage sites. This sale is valid on cruises embarking May 4 through December 31 – including peak-season summer sailings in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe! Fares start at $4,995 per person. In order to receive the VISA gift card, cruises must be paid in full by May 28. Note: Voyages 18 and 20 (Ecuador to Easter Island and Tahiti to Fiji) are not included in this promotion.
