Interline Discounts

Home > Cruise Discounts > Interline Discounts

Interline discounts are special discounts that select cruise lines give to qualifying personnel of a commercial airline, select shipping companies, select cruise lines and select CRM companies.

Typically you will have to give proof of your interline affiliation to your travel agent and/or cruise line while booking your cruise.

This possible discount is why when you're pricing out a cruise many travel agents (and even some web sites) may ask if anyone is airline personnel - they're trying to find you the best deal possible!


Here's a list of the cruise lines that give interline discounts:

Azamara Cruises
Azamara offers special rates on selected sailings for interline personnel. Such rates must be reserved through a participating travel agency. Contact your human resources department for a list of such agencies.

Retired airline employees are eligible for this discount as long as the airline is still in business. A photocopy of the qualifying person's company photo ID must be submitted via fax to Carnival (directly or via their travel agent) at the time of booking.
