Group and family discounts now available

Groups and families looking for a cruise ship adventure should take advantage of new offers that have just been made available for our mega yacht holidays in a plethora of destinations.

Whether you prefer somewhere close to keep the kids happy – the islands of Greece or the coastline of Italy, for example – or would rather indulge in something a little more exotic such as the Seychelles or Cabo Verde, there's something available.

And thanks to these discounts, an enjoyable cruise trip with comfortable surroundings, in-the-know staff and great excursions is now better value than ever. 

Families will no doubt want to take advantage of the Kids Go Free offer, which allows either a single parent or a couple to take one or two children aboard completely free of charge provided the adults pay the full rate.

The offer only applies to those aged between seven and 12 – those above this age will be charged the child fare. It's bookable all year, but parents must remember to quote Kids Go Free when arranging their holiday.

Groups can also take advantage of great rates, with a five per cent reduction on the fare and one cabin free for every nine booked. The offer is available for all Variety cruise programmes in 2014 and 2015, so there is a huge range of choice when it comes to destinations.

Whether your group wants to experience the natural treasures of Costa Rica and the Panama Canal, or the laid-back atmosphere in coastal Greece, they can now do so at a reduced price that fully reflects the value of such a great holiday.

If you're looking for inspiration, why not take a Variety Cruisess mega yacht out on a special family occasion such as a birthday or anniversary? With their smaller size of between 22-26 cabins, they're also great for corporate incentive trips if you're looking to reward a particularly hardworking team.

Furthermore, the yachting division of Seafarer offers a range of motor yachts and sailing yachts with between two and 12 cabins that can be perfect for small groups of friends and family – and the group discount can mean it's surprisingly affordable.

Friends, family and co-workers often make your time away more worthwhile, so treat this as an opportunity to spend some much-needed time with loved ones, and book your cruise today.
