Deluxe Beverage Package- Buy One, Get on 50%

Recommended Posts

Every couple weeks I get an email about sales in the cruise planner. Some of those include the Deluxe package at buy one, get one 50% off. Just to be curious of the price with the discount, several times I have gone through the check out page where I would enter my credit card info and the package is not showing a discount. It is still the price advertised before checking out. When looking at the Refreshment package when on sale, the discount is more obvious

 

Am I missing something? Or is the price advertised ($42 this time) really the sale price, since it is marked down from the normal amount?

"Buy one get 50% off the second" is a marketing phrase for "25% off." And the 25% off you get during that sale is shown in the dollar amount they advertise with it.

 

$42/0.75 = $56

 

So the onboard price on your sailing is $56. Buy one for $56 get a seceond for $28, or $84 total for 2, making it $42 for 1.

Karkee8807,

99.9% of all of Royals sales are fake. They advertise a sale, but what they really did was screw with the numbers. They will increase the price and then advertise that it's on sale. The "sale" price brings it down to about where it was before. :rolleyes:

That price doesn't include the 18% gratuity.

Do not pay any attention to the wording. Don't worry about whether it says 'sale' or not. Just look at the price. If you like it, buy. If you don't, don't. If you buy and then the price goes down, you can cancel and book at the lower price.

I have seen ours go thru a number of "special promos" but the price is always the same. I don't know how they get by with this false advertising......
