JetBlue Vacations Launches Bundled Flight, Cruise and Hotel Packages
JetBlue Vacations has launched Flight + Cruise packages, becoming the first U.S. airline to offer customers the ability to book their flights, cruise and hotel in one place. Cruise packages with Royal Caribbean, Celebrity and Carnival are now available for booking.
On Tuesday (October 19, 2021), JetBlue Travel Products (JTP) announced the launch of JetBlue Vacations’ new Flight + Cruise packages, becoming the first U.S. carrier to offer one-stop booking for bundled flight, cruise and hotel packages. The new cruise packages with Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Carnival Cruise Lines are now bookable at jetbluevacations.com or paisly.com. Customers can save time and money by bundling their intermodal travel purchases, all backed by JetBlue’s signature service.
In Tuesday’s announcement, JetBlue Travel Products’ President, Andres Barry, said,
“Continuing to build upon the trust that JetBlue has established over the last 20+ years, we want customers to book their entire trip, from flights and cruises to hotels and more, all with us. Handling the customer service ourselves, rather than sending them to multiple entities, allows us to go above and beyond while meeting JetBlue standards at every single touchpoint. With cruise lines increasingly beginning to sail again, we’re excited to refresh our package offerings, as we continue to drive ancillaries and build our non-ticket revenue base.”
The new Flight + Cruise packages are complemented by JetBlue’s Plane to Port Commitment, which means if a customers JetBlue flight is delayed or cancelled, the airline will rebook the next available flight and/or make sure they make it to the next port of call, free of charge. Alternatively, the airline will cover up to 150% of the customer’s original package price for a new JetBlue Vacations package, should their flight be delayed or canceled. The Plane to Port Commitment only applies if a cruise is missed due to a JetBlue flight delay or cancelation.
