  • 3. Another Great Idea… If organizing & promoting a cruise or tour is not ideal for your organization, there’s another fantastic alternative – a Cruise Certificate ! By using a Cruise Certificate as the grand prize in raffle or auction, you can quickly achieve your fundraising goals with a minimum of expense.
  • 4. Why a Cruise Certificate… The prize being offered is a fully paid cruise for two which includes port charges, government taxes and gratuities*. Selling tickets for a great prize like this will bring in a greater participation for your fundraising efforts. *Economy cruise certificate levels do not include gratuities and government fees.
  • 5. Why a Cruise Certificate…
    • Wide Selection of Ships & Itineraries Currently, three major cruise lines are participating in the cruise certificate program – Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Celebrity . – that’s almost 50 ships! Your winner also has a wide choice of itineraries – from a 3 day Bahamas sailing to a 12 night Europe or Alaska adventure!
  • 6. Why a Cruise Certificate…
    • Wide Selection of Ships & Itineraries
    • Certificates are fully upgradeable If you purchase a 5-night inside cabin certificate and your winner prefers a 7-night Alaska cruise with a balcony, they simply pay the upgrade fee!

    • Wide Selection of Ships & Itineraries
    • Certificates are fully upgradeable
    • Applicable Sailing Dates
    • Flexibility for the Winner
    • You Choose the level of the prize Your choices range from an economical 3 or 4 day Bahamas cruise, inside cabin without taxes & gratuities to a 12 day adventure in a balcony cabin with all taxes & tips included!
  • 10. Who sells Cruise Certificates? Carnival Cruise Lines - 3 & 4 Day Extra Special Fall only to 7 & 8 Day Premium Year Round. Valid for 18 months. Royal Caribbean – 3 & 4 Day Bronze Fall only to 12 day Premier Year Round. No expiration. Celebrity Cruises – 3,4,5 & 7 Day North American ports only. No expiration. *Blackout dates may apply
  • 11. How much do certificates cost? Please visit our website for the most current pricing of cruise certificates from all three cruise lines. Go to: www.benefitcruise.com and click on Cruise Certificates.
  • 12. Show me the money! Let’s say you decide to promote a 5 day cruise certificate with a cost of $875. If you print 500 tickets & sell each ticket for $15 each ( it is a cruise for two after all!) = $7500 gross sales Minus the cost of the cruise certificate (-$875) Your net would be = $6625!!
  • 13. Show me the money! When you’re ready to purchase the certificate – about 2 weeks prior to your drawing – you’ll already have the money on hand. So, no upfront costs! Should the sales not materialize, for whatever reason, you always have the option to return the money to the ticket buyers. You are under NO obligation to Benefit Cruise Inc. to purchase anything!
