I'd like to know what they are like, my fiancee will finally be an officer in September and I'd like to surprise him with a cruise. I know there are military discounts available, but are they substantial?
We always get our military discounts on Interliner.com. Interliner is specifically for military and airline discounts only. We have had some great rates in the past.
You would have to have a copy of his ID if you want to book one. I don't know if you could surprise him or not. If he has to book it to get the discould, do all the research and pick one then tell him about it. Have fun planning. Tell him congratulations on his achievement from a mom with 3 sons in the USMC.

7 night Eastern Caribbean
Most cruise lines offer military discounts. On Royal Caribbean the discount if for an inside room, so if you want one with a window you would have to negotiate; plus they will need his ID to validate the discount.
ps. hope it works out. I'm Retired from the Air Force
