Discounted drinks package on Royal Caribbean

Recommended Posts

We have received an email telling us that RC are offering 15% off the Deluxe Package and 30% off the Refreshment Package at the moment.

The prices on the website are $78.30 a day, and $33.08 a day.

Are these the full or discounted prices?

Spent ages on the phone with an RC rep who was clueless.

I also got the same email. I think it's a better idea just to keep checking cruise planner regularly. I purchased deluxe package for $67.50, had seen it up to $81, also purchased refreshment package for around $28.

The emails sometimes misrepresent the truth.

As a guide the 'regular' Deluxe Package on-board price is USD55 per day with 18% T&G to be added, so USD65 total, give or take.

Sale savings advertised are based on this price.

 

Using the mysterious RCI Fx rates, this often comes out to around A$81. Using a more current Fx rate of say 72.5c, this would work out to be $89.52. Taking 15% off that would make it $76.08, so I guess that's how they come up with A$78.30 per day as current deal.

 

Value for money would be in the eyes of the beerholder :D

On our planner the drink package was $76 then it went on special at $81, doesn't make much sense!!

The main problem I find is that the packages prices change from cruise to cruise and of course currency fluctuations also can have big influence on the end price.

I bought ours on special for $65 AUD last December for a cruise this December and haven't seen it that low since. It is usually around $75 whenever I look. Do buy it before you go in Aussie dollars though as that price includes gratuity but if you buy later in USD you have to add gratuity.
