Did you know that Disney occassionally offers a military discount on select cruises. Disney recently released a handful of cruises with military rates for the rest of the year and the beginning of 2013! From now until November 4th you can book one of the cruises available at a military rate. Don’t delay, because there are always a limited number of rooms at these prices.
Special Military rates are available to all retired and active U.S. Military personnel (or spouse), including U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, U.S. Marines, U.S Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. National Guard, U.S. Army Reserve and U.S. Department of Defense personnel. Active and retired members (or spouse) of the U.S. military must provide valid identification at time of check-in. This offer is limited to a maximum of 3 staterooms per military member (or spouse), per sailing. A U.S. Military service member (or spouse) is required to sail to take advantage of this offer. Activated members (or spouse) of the U.S. National Guard or the U.S. Army Reserve must also show active duty orders (active duty papers must be dated as of January 1st of the previous year to qualify).
Did you catch that wording: or spouse? Unlike many cruise lines Disney is offering military rates to spouses. I think that is great, because many spouses like myself continue traveling during deployments.
