Hi Jerry,


I have attached a copy of the flyer I have printed for you – 50 copies.  We have a very good program for your Amvets group!  Regardless of the cabin type, they will be able to choose TWO amenities per cabins.  I am also including a $25 onboard credit per cabin to use for the casino, gift shop or towards a shore excursion.  I was pleased to see that NCL is using a newer ship in 2019, the Norwegian Gem, which I sailed on when she was new!


Inside cat IE $859.00pp

 Inside cat IA $899.00pp

Oceanview cat OF (port hole) $1069.00pp

 Ocean view cat OB (Picture Window) $1119.00pp

 Balcony cat BA $1629.00pp

Add to the above rates $213.44pp gov tax (subject to change)

The deposit is $250.00pp due at time of booking (right now NCL promo reduce deposit is $125.00pp), final would be due Jan 11, 2019.

PLUS each cabin can pick two from the following amenities: ( tips on beverage package and dining package included)

Ultimate Beverage Package* – 1st and 2nd guests only

Prepaid Service Charges – 1st and 2nd guests only

Internet Package – per cabin – 250 Minutes

$50 Per Port Shorex Credit – per cabin
Shore Excursion credit – Max of 4 ports.

Dining Package* – 1st and 2nd guests only
Number of meals will be based on length of sailing as follows:

Cruise Length

# of Meals

7-9 Nights


20 Photo Package – per cabin

$75 OBC – per cabin (can be used for casino, gift shop or

towards shore excursions.)

*Guests will NOT be charged the 18% Gratuity for the Dining and Beverage packages




I have blocked a selection of cabins to allow for those who have a limited budget and those who can enjoy a balcony stateroom.  The final discount which we can apply to your cabin will depend upon how many cabins are sold and which type of cabins.  You should aim for selling for 14 cabins at least, not including yourself, for a good discount off your balcony stateroom.

I think that we should book a balcony stateroom for you now for best availability and because they are currently accepting at lower deposit of $125 per person, instead of the regular deposit of $250 per person.  If you also prepay the NCL travel insurance, it will go into effect now for peace of mind.  The deposit and NCL insurance is fully refundable for cancellation prior to January 11th!

My recommendation is for your guests to choose the highest value – the Ultimate Beverage Package including beverage gratuities and the Prepaid Service Charges on the cruise.  The prepaid service charges are worth about $180 per cabin and would be charged to your cabin at the end of the cruise otherwise.  If they will only drink the complimentary beverages and will tour by island busses, they might want the Prepaid Service Charges and the $75 Onboard credit.  A personal choice.

Applying for the AAA Rewards VISA with me is a way to get extra value.  We are offering $75 statement credit after 90 days if spending $500 on this new account!!  Plus additional benefits and discounts possible!  If you don’t have one, I can explain it to you.  Only takes a few minutes to apply and then use the card for the cruise deposit.

I have the flyers done and will include a couple Bermuda maps to paste up and some Bermuda brochures to get people excited.  Where is your event being held?  Do you think it would be helpful for me to come down and man a table during the lunch hour or afternoon when they have some free time?  Leave a message on my cell phone tonight or tomorrow (671-4376) about the best time for me to be there on Friday when people are available to ask questions.  I could work in the office in the morning and come down later in the day.  Remember that it is YOUR personal endorsement and invitation to JOIN YOU which will bring out the crowds.   I have an idea that you are very popular at parties!

Watch for another email in a bit with photos and a blurb to put in your program.

Everyone should plan to email me at or call my extension directly (207) 786-0664 ext.1977561 to plan their cabin and then mail the signed form to me after we have set up their cabin.  Cabins space is limited under this plan and NCL reserves the right to recall space if it is not selling.  Encourage guests to book early for best choice of space and the lower deposit.  The final payment is due by January 11th.

Thank you for trying this Amvets cruise group through me.  I did leave the window open for you not to go if participation is low.  This deal should be popular and I believe we will have a big success!  I really appreciate your travel business.

The flyers and brochures will be ready for you to pick up at the front desk tomorrow.  I will be out all day Thursday to a meeting, back on Friday.  Let me know if you have any questions.
