I haven't heard of any line giving Military discounts on excursions.

My late husband served in the Gulf War, he was a Canadian, but served on the American Hospital ship the Mercy, of which he was very proud and made great friends.
Paul served proudly with the CF for 21 years. He passed away in 2003, he was 44.
I have seen Military discounts on cruises but honestly could never ask about them as the emotions to try and get through the paper work was too much.
I have remarried and thought I would attempt to book a celebrity cruise and enquired about the Military discount for widows of servicemen. Apparently if you have remarried this discount is not for you.
I will write Celebrity resolutions agent as I was told to do in hopes some other widows will benefit in the future of a discount even though they may have remarried, I won't attempt a military discount again, it's just too hard.
