So I have booked a cruise with RC and have been watching their prices closely on excursions and drink packages. Even though they keep promoting "sales" the prices are always the same.
For example, on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the deluxe drink package was being promoted as buy one, get one 50% off. However, the price was exactly the same as it was the week before and every day since ($68.12/day CAD). A few days ago I was on the phone with them and the guy told me that I should buy the drink package because it was the last day at that price, but surprise surprise four days later it is still $68.12.
I know people are going to reply that as a consumer I have the choice to shop there or not, but don't you feel a little cheated and upset by this blatant false advertising? They attempt to pressure you into a purchase by saying there is a limited time at that price, but it the same price it always is and always will be. I realize that many companies and stores have inflated prices to then offer something as a sale, but when the price never moves a cent how can you say you are giving a BOGO 50% or tell someone this is the last day and it will be more expensive tomorrow?
I wish someone would call them on this BS.
