Celebrity dangles VISA gift cards, cruise grand prize, reduced deposits
Celebrity Cruises kicked off its 25th anniversary with rewards for travel agents and passengers.

In its 'Celebrity Cruises Celebrates 25 Years Sweepstakes,' through Jan. 30, Celebrity will award 25 daily VISA gift cards to agents.

Travel partners also have the chance to win a grand prize, an inclusive VIP cruise vacation with Celebrity, complete with suite accommodations, round-trip air arrangements, a Classic Beverage Package, gratuities and $200 to spend on board.

Each time an agent books a stateroom on any Celebrity ship and any cruise departing between Feb. 1, 2015, and April 30, 2017, they will earn one sweepstakes entry. Suite bookings earn two entries.

To qualify for inclusion in the grand prize drawing, an agent must book at least five staterooms.

Available through Jan. 11, Celebrity’s customers can take advantage of a limited-time $25 deposit. This promotion can be combined with the '123go! All Inclusive' campaign. Vacationers can get all three benefits —free beverage packages, gratuities and up to $300 to spend on board—when booking a Concierge Class stateroom or higher or choose one of these offers with a ocean-view or veranda stateroom reservation.

Cruisers can toast Celebrity's 25th on board its 11 ships by raising a glass of the new 25th Anniversary Martini.
