VACAYA is incredibly excited to announce a global partnership with Radisson Hotel Group that gives you access to preferred savings at every single hotel under the Radisson brands around the globe and throughout the year.

No matter if your travels are for a VACAYA trip, a personal trip completely unrelated to VACAYA, or even a business trip, take advantage of VACAYA’s Preferred Rates each and every time you travel and SAVE BIG with the following hotel brands:

  • Radisson Hotels
  • Radisson Collection
  • Radisson Blu
  • RED Radisson
  • Radisson Individuals
  • Park Plaza
  • Park Inn by Radisson
  • Country Inn & Suites
  • Prizeotel

Here’s how it works:

  • For hotels in North or South America, go to https://www.radissonhotelsamericas.com/
  • For hotels in Europe, Africa, Asia, or Australia, go to https://www.radissonhotels.com/
  • Choose your destination and travel dates
  • Under “Special rates” select “Travel agency ID” from the dropdown menu
  • Enter code 33584202
  • Click SEARCH
  • You’re now on your way to SAVINGS as you take advantage of the best rates you’ll find anywhere!

For each of our trips, we’ll designate a single hotel or multiple properties as our “Recommended Hotels.” If it’s a Radisson hotel, simply follow the instructions above to snag a room and save. Our guests enjoy staying at properties where other VACAYA guests are staying. Our “Recommended Hotels” are the properties that will ultimately have the most VACAYA guests staying there, but feel free to book any of the properties that best fit your budget and your needs.

Not all of our “Recommended Hotels” will be part of the Radisson Hotel Group, but regardless… you can ALWAYS take advantage of the savings with Radisson no matter our recommendations or where your travels take you. 

 

 


 

To enhance your pre- and post-cruise experiences, the following properties are recommended by VACAYA:

2021 ICELAND CRUISE HOTEL RECOMMENDATION

2021 MEXICO RESORT HOTEL RECOMMENDATION

2021 NEW ORLEANS CRUISE HOTEL RECOMMENDATION

2022 CARIBBEAN CRUISE HOTEL RECOMMENDATION

2022 SEYCHELLES CRUISE HOTEL RECOMMENDATIONS

2022 GREEK ISLES CRUISE HOTEL RECOMMENDATION

2022 ANTARCTICA CRUISE HOTEL RECOMMENDATION

 

2021 ICELAND CRUISE HOTEL RECOMMENDATION

We recommend the Radisson Blu 1919 Hotel Reykjavík. We hope to have that property in the Radisson mix (described above) shortly. They are having some technical issues with this specific property in the new VACAYA booking pages they’ve created, but they expect the issue to be resolved shortly. Once it is, we’ll send an email to all Iceland guests with the news and then you’ll be well on your way to savings by following the Radisson booking instructions in our email.

 

 

2021 MEXICO RESORT HOTEL RECOMMENDATION

If you’d like to extend your stay at Hyatt Ziva Riviera Cancun either before or after our week there, VACAYA has negotiated a discounted rate even lower than World of Hyatt members qualify for. Use these links to book your extra nights at a discount:

Pre-Event Nights (Oct 29 and earlier): BOOK PRE-EVENT NIGHTS HERE

Post-Event Nights (Nov 6 and beyond): BOOK POST-EVENT NIGHTS HERE

While Hyatt cannot guarantee you’ll be able to stay in the same room for extra pre-event nights, they will do their very best. For post-event nights, you’ll stay in the same room you have with VACAYA. Both of these circumstances are entirely dependent on you purchase of the same room type you have with VACAYA for your extra pre- or post-event nights. Purchasing a different room type than the type you have with VACAYA will ensure you’ll have to change rooms.

2021 NEW ORLEANS CRUISE HOTEL RECOMMENDATION

As a reminder, this cruise includes an overnight in New Orleans on November 14, 2021 at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside.

If you’d like to book additional pre-cruise nights before November 14 or post-cruise nights starting November 22, simply click on the big pink button below and input your dates. Click “Add special rate codes” and enter Group Code 33584202 to make your reservation. Putting in that number will identify you as traveling with VACAYA.

 

BOOK HILTON NEW ORLEANS RIVERSIDE

2022 CARIBBEAN CRUISE HOTEL RECOMMENDATION

For the first time in LGBT+ travel history, we’re actually taking over an ENTIRE pre-cruise hotel in downtown Fort Lauderdale! It’ll be abuzz with weekend activities, including our Exclusive VIP Kick-Off Party Saturday, January 8.

The all-new Courtyard Fort Lauderdale Downtown just opened last month and she’s all ours! She was designed and is independently owned by a team of predominantly LGBT+ hoteliers and operators who’ve infused their new property with endless style. She’s a gleaming jewel in Downtown Fort Lauderdale and provides quick and easy access to the beach, Port Everglades, and all nearby Wilton Manors has to offer!

Take a look at ALL that’s included:

  • Your Fantastic Modern Room!
  • Daily Breakfast 8-10am, including Million Dollar Bacon, Avocado Toast, Cage-free Scrambled Eggs, Country-Roasted Potatoes, and an assortment of beverages
  • Exclusive access to the VACAYA VIP Party 4-8pm Saturday, January 8 at the rooftop pool! (VACAYA Cruise Guests and their friends not staying with us at Courtyard are welcome to join the party starting at 8pm. Powered by some of Fort Lauderdale’s best DJs, we’ll be going until 3am!)
  • Two Complimentary Signature Cocktails per guest at our VIP Party
  • Late-morning Coach Transfer to Celebrity Millennium Monday, January 10

There’s a 2-night minimum and prices range from $299-$399/night. Pricing is based on Double Occupancy. You can add a third or fourth person to rooms with 2 beds for an additional $65 USD per person per night, which is paid directly to the hotel upon check-in. City and state taxes totaling 13% are added to all bookings. Payment and cancellation terms can be found on the booking page.

To book your exclusive stay, simply click on the BIG PINK BUTTON below and let’s do this!

 

If you’re looking for other hotel options in South Florida, there are several Radisson properties available at a discount to you and with no night minimum. Just follow the instructions at the top of our Hotel Offers page to explore the options.

2022 SEYCHELLES CRUISE HOTEL RECOMMENDATIONS

We’ve partnered with the Hilton Seychelles Group to offer their 3 fabulous properties at a discount to you. You’ll get the Best Available Rate at time of booking with a small percentage taken off the rate, ensuring you get the best possible rate when booking through VACAYA.

Each hotel has its own level of luxury and charm, but all are wonderful properties for your pre- or post-cruise stays. You can explore the hotels using the following pink booking links:

 

BOOK HILTON SEYCHELLES NORTHOLME RESORT & SPA ON MAHÉ

 


 

BOOK DoubleTree by Hilton Seychelles – Allamanda Resort & Spa on Mahé

 


 

BOOK Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa on Silhouette Island*

 

When booking your hotel, select BOOK A ROOM on the landing page and then EDIT STAY (on the right-hand side) to put in your desired travel dates.

The island of Mahé has abundant transportation options and each property can assist you with a car service to the dock in Victoria (exact position still TBD) on February 15. And of course you can simply take a taxi from the airport (SEZ) to each hotel when you arrive in Victoria.

We of course recommend coming into Seychelles earlier than our embarkation date of February 15, 2022. Traveling this far, you don’t want to risk the chance of something happening with your flight that could potentially cause you to miss the ship. In a worst-case scenario where you did miss the ship, know that traveling between the Seychelles islands can be done relatively easily, but don’t let that be the start of your vacation. Instead, with the day before our cruise being Valentine’s Day, we highly recommend coming into Seychelles earlier than our sail date and enjoying this incredible paradise. Coming in early will also give your body a chance to catch up with the time differences, ensuring you’re fresh and ready to go when we board Le Bougainville.

 

*Silhouette Island is a short helicopter or boat ride to/from Mahé.

2022 GREEK ISLES CRUISE HOTEL RECOMMENDATION

Our Recommended Hotel for Athens is the Radisson Blu Park Hotel, Athens. You’ll be able to book the hotel about 11 months before our trip once their 2022 rates have been loaded into Radisson’s system. We’ll give all booked guests a heads up via email once the rates are loaded. At that point, you’ll simply use the instructions above to save when making your Radisson booking.

 

2022 ANTARCTICA CRUISE HOTEL RECOMMENDATION

As a reminder, this cruise includes an overnight in Buenos Aires on December 11, 2022. PONANT has not yet signed their 2022 hotel contract. We do know, however, that the hotel will either be the Sofitel or the InterContinental. Once we know exactly which PONANT has contracted with, we’ll provide booking links to that property here for additional nights.
