Whether you’re an enthusiastic beginner or seasoned traveler, as a student you can #vacaya in style and save! US College and University students are eligible for student pricing.
Is the student pricing available on every VACAYA trip?
As a general standard, student pricing is only available on our large-ship VACAYA Bliss programs. However, we may occasionally offer student promotions on other vacations.
Am I eligible?
If you’re a student currently enrolled at a US Title IV accredited college or university, and 21 or older, then yes.
How do you know I’m a student?
We keep it simple:
- Snap a photo of your current student ID.
- Email your full legal name, date of birth, telephone number, the name of the cruise you’d like to join, and the photo of your ID to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Once received, VACAYA’s Vacation Planners will give your school a call to verify your current enrollment.
What is the student pricing?
Each verified student in your room will pay just $799 (plus port charges and gratuities, which vary by trip) for a GUARANTEED double occupancy interior stateroom. “Guaranteed” means you won’t pick your room in advance, but instead agree to let VACAYA choose your room for you closer to sailing. So find a student friend to join you and let the games begin!
What if my travel companion isn’t a student? Do they get the student pricing, too?
No. They’d pay the standard price for their half of the room, but we’d handle the booking slightly differently. In this case, we would assign your room in advance and the student pricing would be tiered to match the type of room being booked. For example, if you and your friend wanted an Interior Stateroom, the eligible student would pay the previously quoted $799 fare. For an Oceanview Stateroom, the student fare is $1199. Veranda Staterooms (ones with a balcony) and Suites are ineligible.
What if I’m traveling alone?
All shipboard rooms are based on double occupancy, so if you wanted an interior stateroom all to yourself, you’d pay the $799 student fare twice, plus port charges once, and gratuities twice. OR… you can join our Solo Traveler’s program, STEP, and share a cabin with someone VACAYA assigns to join you.
How do I receive the student pricing?
Once we confirm your eligibility, we’ll email you to let you know you’re good to go and we’ll set up a time/date to complete your booking with one of our Vacation Planners!
