Celestyal Cruises Launches Special “Hero’s Discount” to Thank First Responders and Healthcare Workers

Special "Hero's Discount" provides up to 30% discount to those on the frontline fighting the pandemic

With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic having put travel on pause for all globally in 2020 – including those heroes on the frontline of fighting to protect and care for communities across the world, Celestyal Cruises has launched a special “Black Friday” campaign on select 2021 and 2022 all-inclusive cruises booked from now through 30th November.

Cruises start from £299 per person based on double occupancy and include free Covid-19 medical travel insurance cover on qualifying dates. Children also sail for free and there is a reduced single supplement of just 15% for solo travellers.

For first responders and healthcare workers Celestyal is offering a special “HERO’S Discount” with up to 30% off current all-inclusive fares for bookings made from now through 31st March 2021 for three-, four-, seven- and 14-night 2021 or 2022 departures. The special HERO discount is available to qualifying front-line first responders (firefighters, police officers, emergency medical technicians, etc.) healthcare professionals (doctors, nurses and pharmacists) and back office medical staff and their immediate family members travelling together in the same stateroom. Supporting employment credentials (such as an employee id) will be required prior to boarding. During this season of giving, travellers can also opt to thank their healthcare workers or first responders with a much deserved gift of a future cruise holiday.

“We are truly grateful and humbled by the amazing heroes who continue to work tirelessly to take care of us all during this unprecedented time. We felt it important to recognise our heroes and, through our Black Friday campaign, give everyone something to look forward to in 2021 and beyond,” said Leslie Peden, chief commercial officer.

“We also feel that the holidays are the perfect time to give the gift of a cruise to families and friends as well as perhaps even to a special healthcare worker or first responder who helped those in need during these trying times.”
