Mark the calendar for first-ever Windjammer Wednesday on December 4

Schooner Stephen Taber with #WindjammerWednesday graphicBlack Friday is perfect for holiday bargain shoppers.  Cyber Monday? It’s a day dedicated to the intrepid online shopper.  This year, after the traditional holiday bargain shopping days have passed, the Maine Windjammer Association  is stepping up to the plate with Windjammer Wednesday on December 4th.  This first-time-ever holiday promotion is perfect for that person who has everything but an unplugged vacation to look forward to.  Windjammer Wednesday is offered on December 4, 2019 only, and in an unprecedented one-day event, offers a 10-percent discount on Maine Windjammer Association cruises that are booked and paid for in full on that day.

The eight members of the Maine Windjammer Association are stepping up to the plate to make your holiday shopping a little easier this year.  Always at a loss for that gift to give your husband or son-or-daughter-in-law who says they have everything already (and they do)?  You know you want a very special surprise for them this holiday season, so consider the gift of a Maine Windjammer Association cruise.  It’s not only a summer vacation; it’s something to anticipate for six months during the long winter, and they say the anticipation is a huge part of the vacation fun.  We promise a Maine Windjammer Cruise would be welcomed, but most likely won’t be on their holiday list, so this will be the perfect surprise gift.

It’s easy.  Decide upon your favorite Maine Windjammer Association vessel and review their schedule for the 2020 cruising season.  Then call their toll-free number, book your cruise and pay in full all on December 4, 2019 before midnight. Why not make this a gift for yourself too?  Accompany that special gift recipient on their cruise and now you too have something to look forward to.

The fine print

Of course, as there are with any offers, there are a few caveats to this offer.

This is a one-day December 4, 2019 promotion on new bookings only.  This offer is not valid on any other day but December 4, 2019, so be sure to mark your calendar, do some pre-planning on the Maine Windjammer Association cruise of your dreams, and then call on December 4th.

The Windjammer Wednesday 10-percent off is valid on new reservations only.  You may not cancel an existing cruise and re-book to take advantage of this offer.  You can, however, add another cruise to your summer if you’ve already booked one, and on December 4th you’ll get to take 10-percent off that second/new booking when it’s paid in full.

The Windjammer Wednesday offer may not be combined with any other discount, package or promotional offer.

The Windjammer Wednesday bookings must be made in person, by phone.  This offer is not valid on online reservations.  If you call and do not reach an operator, be sure to leave a message so someone can call you back to redeem the offer.

This holiday season be the gift-giving hero.  Give the gift of relaxation, unplugged time at sea, stupendous food,  the chance to be surrounded by nature, and the ideal Coastal Maine vacation all rolled into one.  You don’t see offers like this one often. We want to make your holidays merry and bright with Windjammer Wednesday, so commit December 4th to memory, call your favorite windjammer and book and purchase your summer 2020 cruise all on that one day.
