Sunwing Introduces Direct Winter Flight Service from Vancouver to Montego Bay

TORONTO, May 31, 2017 /CNW/ - Beginning December 19, 2017 and available weekly until April 3, 2018, Sunwing will be operating a direct flight service this coming winter and early next spring to the popular resort destination of Montego Bay, Jamaica. Vacationers that choose to take advantage of the new and extended flight service –which is anticipated to be the only direct connection to the island available from Vancouver this coming winter - can choose between a stay at one of the tour operator's leading luxury resorts or a cruise package on board the newly-refurbished TUI Discovery 2  that will commence sailing from Montego Bay this November.

Exclusively offered by Sunwing, TUI Discovery 2 offers a host of amenities sure to make days at sea delightfully varied, including a rock climbing wall, mini-golf course, spa, fitness centre and two pools. Vacationers can choose from over 8 different dining options. Nightly entertainment venues range from a Broadway show lounge to a nightclub and casino. With numerous itineraries to choose from including an exciting mix of ports of call from the iconic Cuban capital of Havana to the divers paradise island of Roatan, shore excursions are sure to be action packed. All Sunwing cruise packages also include round-trip airfare to Montego Bay with round-trip pier transfers, meals, daily gratuities and an all inclusive beverage plan.

As Canada's #1 to the sun, Sunwing offers a wide range of accommodation packages to Jamaica. Travellers are sure to appreciate the recently opened Royalton Negril Resort & Spa and its amenities like reservation free gourmet dining, elegant on-site spa,  and nightly entertainment; while couples in particular may prefer Hideaway at Royalton Negril  that offers 24-hour room service, exclusive restaurant, pool bar and beachfront together with full access to the wider amenities of both resorts.

Beachgoers can also opt for one of the six luxurious and elegant RIU Hotels and Resorts spread across Jamaica, and take advantage of a host of RIU-topia benefits from unlimited, reservation free dining to in-room liquor dispensers, daily replenished mini bars and more. Recently opened in Montego Bay, Riu Reggae welcomes its guests with glamourous accommodations, a RIU Fit Program designed for active guests, and rejuvenating treatments to stave off stress at the on-site Renova Spa.  Another favourite is Riu Montego Bay which boasts a beachfront location, a large pool with swim-up bar and an authentic Jamaican Jerk Hut. Couples may prefer Riu Palace Jamaica,  a refined adults only beachfront resort where guests can enjoy exclusive Riu Palace extras such as 24-hour room service, poolside waiter beverage service, and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout.

All Sunwing packages include return flights on Sunwing Airlines where passengers can sit back and relax while on board, with award-winning inflight service that includes a sparkling wine toast, complimentary non-alcoholic beverage service and buy on board selection of light meals and snacks with choices inspired by Food Network Canada Celebrity Chef, Lynn Crawford.
