Bring A Friend Offer*
Reserve two cabins on the same itinerary, and if at least one cabin's guests have never traveled with Grande Caribe or Grande Mariner, each cabin gets a discount depending on cruise length.

Single Savings*
Several options are available if you are traveling alone. There are select cabins configured as single accommodations and priced for single occupancy only. The ships also have designated double occupancy cabins you may reserve at 175% of the full 2-person cabin fare. And, the "Willing to Share" program allows you to pay a per person rate for a double occupancy room. You will be waitlisted for a same-gender traveling companion, however should no other person reserve under this program you will be placed alone in that double occupancy cabin.

Back-to-Back Cruises*
With so many spectacular itineraries to choose from, why not book an extended vacation by combining more than one? Book consecutive back-to-back cruises aboard the same vessel and save 10% per passenger on the second trip.

Guests are invited to "Bring Your Own Bottle" (BYOB), just like one does on a private yacht. This unique alcohol policy gives you the freedom to enjoy your preferred beverages without a costly tab at the trip's end. Mixers, snacks, barware, refrigeration and bottle storage space are provided around the clock.

Stair Lifts

Stair lifts are available between the Main, Sun and Top decks on all ships for your convenience.


Our ships offer four categories of classic small ship cruising cabins. Each features private facilities and individually controlled air conditioning systems, which continuously feed in fresh air. Smoking is restricted to outside decks so all cabins are smokefree. Our Grande Class vessels have been recently refurbished with new décor in cabins, lounges, dining rooms and upgraded washroom and shower facilities.
