$300 per person to cover international flight fee.

 

Our last flight from the UK was over $700 each.

 

What about the other $400 each we would lose?

 

Flying from the UK means wed have to book a hotel the night before sailing - another $100-$150 lost.

 

And if you choose to cancel you dont get anything?

 

RCI get a better deal and guests get shafted.

 

Well done Royal Caribbean NOT

The $300 is for flight change fees, not the actual fare. And if you choose to cancel they are indeed offering a full refund.

This charter is at least the fifth year of the same weeks, Royal Caribbean were asked about this in December 2017. Everyone who has enquired has been mislead by RCI.

I am glad they have now admitted that the ship is Chartered and itinerary changed.

Cruise with Huge.

Doesn't this same dealership use the Brilliance of the Seas out of Tampa also? They need their own ship called Fuccillo of the Seas. Some of the sleaziest car commercials you will ever see on television or hear on the radio.

If you booked in the EU - EU laws will make sure you get all your expenses and 150% of your cruise fare on top - to find a new vacation.

Not just huge, but HUGE!!!! No judgement on the buyers like you, just the dealership that has repeatedly kicked off passengers booked via RCI on a regular basis.

It's not Kia that's kicking off passengers. The fault is solely on RC.

Could you post the link to that. I’ve searched and everything that I’ve been able to find limits this compensation to cruises departing from or arriving in a EU country.

It would be nice if one of the price-protected options was for the same sail date. (I know, that's hard to do for a 5 day cruise, but sometimes vacation dates are chosen for a very specific reason.)

 

It would be nice if they would require charter groups to book the ship further in advance, say 18 months, to minimize the number of people booted off of a cruise.
