Introducing Flights by Celebrity: A Complete Vacation Package for Your Cruise
August 7, 2017
Flights by Celebrity Offers Premium Service and Peace of Mind for Your Vacation – with No Booking Fee
Picture this: You’ve booked your dream cruise and meticulously planned out all the details of your vacation, including a flight from home that gets you to your ship’s embarkation port with plenty of time before its departure.
But then your flight is delayed….
And delayed again…
Next thing you know your flight is cancelled and you’re frantically trying to speak with the airline to get on a flight that will still get you to your much-anticipated vacation in time. It’s not quite the stress-free, relaxing trip you had in mind.
What if during that hectic time you had a travel professional who was working with the airlines on your behalf free of charge to make sure you get on the first available flight that will get you to your cruise?
That scenario probably sounds much more appealing and it’s what happens for travelers sailing with Celebrity Cruises who book their airfare through Flights by Celebrity.
Flights by Celebrity turns a Celebrity cruise into a packaged vacation complete with airfare, and you don’t have to give up any of the flexibility that typically comes with booking your own flights. You’ll also get to take advantage of professional travel service. This is all thanks to Flights by Celebrity’s three main benefits: Points, Price, Protection
Flights by Celebrity Benefit #1: Points
You can still choose what airline and even what flight you want to fly on, right down to the day and time. This gives you flexibility while also taking advantage of the service Flights by Celebrity provides. It also enables you to still use any points program of which you are a member.
Flights by Celebrity Benefit #2: Price
Flights by Celebrity also has a Lowest Airfare Guarantee*, which guarantees that you’ll get the lowest price on that flight at the time of booking. If you find a cheaper flight within 24 hours after booking your flight, you’ll be credited 110% of the difference in the form of onboard credit to spend on your cruise, which you can use toward spa treatments, shore excursions, drinks, specialty dining, and more.
The Lowest Airfare Guarantee will also save you time since you won’t need to check multiple sites to compare prices. Plus, there is no added booking fee for the service Flights by Celebrity provides!
Flights by Celebrity Benefit #3: Protection
As demonstrated in the example scenario at the beginning of this article, Flights by Celebrity protects your vacation investment by ensuring your arrival to the ship if there are any issues with your flight such as flight interruptions, delays, or cancellations. Celebrity Cruises’ Emergency Travel Team is always available day or night to assist with any flight needs you have. In the event of a disruption to your flight, they will work with their airline partners to get you on the next available scheduled flight in the same class of service. If there are no options for getting you to the embarkation port, they will attempt to get you to the next available port on your cruise’s itinerary.
