2018 Premier Dealer Cruise: Montego Bay, Jamaica
The 2018 Premier Dealer Cruise will mark the 11th Annual installment of our signature event. This year’s Dealer Cruise will take place January 21-26, 2019 at the incredible Secrets Wild Orchid in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Located at the tip of a peninsula, with over a mile of private beaches leading into the waters of Jamaica’s famous Montego Bay, Secrets Wild Orchid is one of the jewels of the Secrets family of resorts.
Enjoy fine dining at one of seven á la carte restaurants, sip top-shelf cocktails at the piano bar, soak up the sun by the pool or on the totally private beach, or simply relax on your ocean-view balcony. This all-inclusive, adults-only slice of paradise awaits you.
And there’s plenty to do off-site, too. Check out the nightlife on Montego Bay’s famous Hip Strip, book a zipline or river-rafting adventure, or tour the Appleton Estate Rum Distillery.
The options are endless, you just have to qualify!

How to Qualify
Cruise Points are the determining factor in who gets invited to join us in Jamaica. Beginning in April 2018, all of your purchases will be converted into Cruise Points according to this system:
All Purchases: $1 = 1 Point
No matter what you buy or when, you’ll get a point for every dollar spent (starting April 2018).
Year-over-Year Monthly Growth: $1 = 2 Points
When your purchases for a month in 2018 grow past your purchases for the same month in 2017, you’ll get a bonus point for each dollar spent.
Year-over-Year Monthly Decline: -$1 = -1 Point
If your purchases for a month in 2018 are less than your purchases for the same month in 2017, you’ll lose a point for each dollar of decline.
Dealer Portal Purchases: $1 = 2 Points
If you place an order on our Dealer Portal, or submit it via our API, you’ll get a bonus point for each dollar spent that way.
Special Monthly Bonus Opportunities
Every month, we’ll release a special buying opportunity that will provide bonus points. Make sure to check your emails and our social media pages often.
The qualifying window is April 1 – November 5, 2018. In order to qualify, your account with Premier must be current at the end of the qualifying window. Final invitations with be distributed at Premier’s discretion.
