Here's some great news for our readers serving in the Armed Forces or with family members in service. Discovery Cruise Line offers free cruises for military personnel who have served in Iraq or Afghanistan during the prior year, along with families.

Give a holiday gift of a free cruise to Grand Bahama For the past six years, Discovery Cruise Line has offered a special program for personnel serving in the military overseas. To thank them for their service, Discovery offers those who served in Iraq or Afghanistan at any time during the preceding year a free Discovery day cruise to Grand Bahama Island.

Hanns J. Hahn, General Manager of Discovery, said, "We want to continue to recognize our military personnel and remind their families that the program is on-going any time during the year."

The offer, which is valid until December 31, 2010, is for one free roundtrip cruise to Grand Bahama on Discovery Cruise Line including the cost of all meals served, including a seven-course gourmet dinner in our Grand Bahama Grill on board, all service charges, taxes, and Bahamian departure fees. There are no additional costs involved.

Discovery will mail a receipt and a holiday card for them to pass on to the service man or woman. The receipt will entitle the person to his or her complimentary Discovery cruise. The receipt should be presented at the pier at the time of sailing, together with a Military ID and a letter from their
unit confirming the places of service during the preceding year. Advanced reservations are required.

Discovery carries approximately 160,000 passengers between the two destinations. The cruise features all the amenities of a longer cruise in one
fun-filled day, including an all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast as soon as you board and an all-you-can-eat buffet dinner on the return cruise.
