Others may already know this, but I just discovered it. Princess Cruise line offers a shipboard credit for active, retired and honorable discharge(at least 2 yrs service) personnel.
It amounts to $50 for a 6 day or less cruise
$100 for 7-13 days
$250 for 14 days or longer.
You must apply prior to the cruise.

Carnival does not have a standard "Militray" discount policy for all travel. They do offer discounts based on specific sailings, ships, and itinaries. So you may see a X% discount for one sailing and a much higher Y% discount for another. The discount extends to active, dependent, retired and honorably discharged veterans but is not universal across all these groups or cruises. So, the best bet is to contact them direcetly for any cruis your interested ina nd have them provide the details of the discounts. You should also ask about all the various types when calling as some crusies are short enough that they can get actives so no need to overly discount, but they are looking for the retirees and dependents so they may get a slightly higher discount. As always, never hurts to ask. I have gotten defense contractors discounts at many vacation spots just by asking if they offer them.

Im Navy Reserve and have almost always gotten a military discount on Carnival (4 of 5 cruises). You have to call and ask, but they can usually do something for you.

I think I'm gonna call them, and verify that their military deals are offered to ALL cruises. Their policy clearly states cruises 14 days or longer are $250 / military personnel. Well, Princess is one of the few cruise lines that offers 'round-the-world cruises (100+ days), that normally run upwards of $10,000.

If I can book one of those for $250, I know where I'll be this summer.

I beleive that is an On-Board Credit, not the fare. So on trip over 14 days, you get a $250 credit for use on the ship. The Fare is still what the fare is.

Oh is that it? That would make more sense. Damn, I was hoping it was the other way around.
