If you pay your balance in full by August 1st, you may be eligible for a $50 per person discount.
Please contact us before you make your final payment so we can apply the discount.
(Suites and discounted cabins do not qualify for this discount)

Leaving on a jet plane...

All airlines including Southwest are booking flights for the dates of SBC 24.

When you’re looking at flights, here are a couple things to keep in mind.

  • If you are flying to the Fort Lauderdale airport (FLL) on Saturday, January 6th (the day of the cruise) your flight should land no later than 2pm.  This gives you time to claim your luggage and take a taxi to the cruise terminal. 
  • If you are flying home from the Fort Lauderdale on Saturday, January 13th (the day we return) we suggest you book your flight no earlier than Noon.  This is because there is always a chance the we might be delayed due to Customs, immigration or weather.  


Sandy Beaches Cruises will be hosting a pre cruise party at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale on the evening of January 5th.  Full details can be found HERE

Pre-cruise hotel

We are running low on rooms at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina, so don’t delay in making your reservation.  Full details can be found HERE.

Spread the word!

Tell all your friends and family about SBC 24!  You could be eligible for $50 in onboard credit for each new reservation.   

Whether they’re ready to book now or have questions about a future reservation, they should call Molly at 1-800-Delbert.
