Default Military Discounts

I have been unable to find information regarding the Active Duty/Retired Military discount programs that the various Cruise Lines offer. Does anyone know of a web site or other source for this information?

Check individual cruise line's websites. I personally only know about RCCL's policy. The info is in the FAQ section, and it boils down to, call their special services people.

We book for our Military Discounts thru Interliner.com. We have gotten some really good discounts, better than most cruiselines. This website is also good for airline and retired airline employees.

We got a great military discount through my Carnival PVP. I haven't seen it any cheaper anywhere else.

Default Thank you All for your valuable input.

I asked this question only two days ago. Yesterday I booked a cruise from Honolulu to Ensenada, Mexico using the recommended interliner.com web site. I saved just under $400 with my military retiree discount. So, thanks again everone for you suggestions. This CruiseMates site has been so helpfull over the past three years that I have been using same.
