Black Friday sale....what is usually included?

Recommended Posts

My husband and I booked a 5 day cruise for November 30, 2020. We are checking out the Voom Surf & Stream with 2 devices package.  Is $95 ($19 per day) considered a sale?

I’ve definitely seen it higher than that.

No deal for ANYTHING on my cruise that sails in February 2020. I actually got better prices on some stuff before today. Another "fake sale". Pretty disappointing!

I saved about $50 on internet for my May Liberty cruise.  The UDP didn’t change.

These are not "fake" sales.  They are sales which were not profitable for YOU.  That doesn't mean that it isn't a good price for someone else.

 

Nor is there any promise, anywhere, that ALL things will be on sale.

Phoned today and RCCL said my cruise in May  stays the same price.

 

By the way, you could have checked the price yourself in your Cruise Planner.

This is an example of why you have to know what things cost.  The Deluxe Beverage Package isn't a deal for either of my 2020 cruises, but the Beach Club at CocoCay dropped from $54 to $39.  So some savings.

 

I do wish that we got the prices on the drink package that we used to get on Black Friday, but it's still a good deal.  Again, it's a matter of knowing your price point and what things are worth it to you.

For us....

$55/day on Wednesday to $51/day now. This after the so called 50% off sale! 

9 days x $4 = $36 x 2 people = $72 savings. 

It isn't much but it is something. We took it.

Nah its pretty much a fake sale. Marginal to no discounts disguised as huge savings pretty much across the board

When the price stays the same but the % of the discount they offer that day is different. That IS a fake sale.
 

Do you really believe they change the price onboard the ship every few days to make those percentages real? 🙄

We got refreshment package, Coco Beach Club & digital prints! For HOTS September 2020.  We are in a Grand Suite so no internet needed & are given 2 speciality meals from TA.  And we eat in CK a lot!!!

I can only share that on OotS for a Sept 2020 cruise there were no actual price reductions that haven't been in place for several weeks. I'm guessing it highly depends on the time of the sailing, the ship as well as who has purchased what for that sailing. Gonna keep an eye open through Monday to see if there's any change, otherwise I'll check each being sales period.

ALL 6 of the excursions I had booked for my June 2020 sailing in Brilliance were on sale yesterday.  I only saved $261.62 on the excursions.  Every little bit helps.  I previously caught 2 price drops on the cruise.  The first was for $642 and the second was for $407.  Someone posted a thread on CC that there was a "sale."  I checked it out and fortunately it affected my cruise.  I am happy to take the $1,310.62 savings since booking the cruise.

We no longer taken the prints  They are so heavy and not easy to take home if you have a few hundred.

Thanks for that tip.  I hadn't thought about that.  Good advice.

 Unfortunately, I understand Independence doesn’t have the chat feature in the Royal app.

It might by Feb.

Beverage package on Jan. Anthem is the same as I paid back in August $45 (nice).  My Oct. Oasis is still high however I almost missed a $600 price drop on my booking. It pays to keep checking!

Are the photo packages per cabin or per person? The black friday sale offers a significant savings (down from $249 to $119) - and if that's per cabin - i'll grab it.

The Deluxe Beverage is still $61 for Oasis in March.  It has not dropped below $60 for this cruise.   I did grab Voom S&S 2 Devices for 17.99/day which has been the lowest I've seen for this cruise.   I had it booked before Black Friday at 22.50/day.  Also looks like excursions on Labadee were lower in price.  I doubt if other ports will have any discounts.

Obviously, you didn’t read my post.  I did not say anything about Black Friday.  The UDP math has been incorrect on our Cruise Planner for quite some time.  I wanted the reps to realize that the cost advertised, $20 per day X 14 days, did not equal $336 and correct their advertising - one way or the other.  That’s all!  THEY were the ones who couldn’t grasp simple math and kept bringing up their Black Friday sale.

 

Did you take into account the 18% gratuity?
