Royal Restarts in Singapore with Cruises to Nowhere


Recommended Posts

How does it work exactly, is it for a GLS - say you pay a lower price then it is sky, but if you pay a higher price its star? Or is it certain categories of staterooms? Most Suite categories for my sailing still look available, except that instead of offering Star Class, its only capped at Sky Class currently.

If you don't mind sharing, what are the Royal Up prices like (min-max) for each category?

I can’t see them yet but back in Dec it was min 120 for the suite above a one bedroom and went up from there.  
 

On another board folks have posted $60 min bid from balcony to JR suite. One person got it at that too.

Yes, Star Class is available, but it looks like most of those rooms were already booked for many of the sailings. 

Which category of suites are these? Loft suites?

Grand Loft, Owners' Loft and Royal Loft are Star Class, Sky Loft is not. It used to be Star too, not sure why it got excluded after that.

I see Owner's loft and Grand Loft but both are stated as Sky Class, which I thought was weird, unless I saw it wrong.

So I tried some mock bookings and found a n owners loft but under details it does not say Star and don’t give the full details however the Sky class does.  

 

When I was booking back in late Oct I do remember seeing them say Star class with the details. 
 

Per RC website the following are Star

  • Royal Loft Suite
  • Villa Suite – 4 Bedrooms
  • Owner’s Loft Suite
  • Grand Loft Suite
  • Owner’s Panoramic – 1 Bedroom
  • Grand Panoramic – 1 Bedroom
  • Star Loft Suite
  • Spacious AquaTheater Suite with Large Balcony – 2 Bedrooms
  • AquaTheater Suite with Large Balcony – 2 Bedrooms

A lot of those are only available on Oasis class ships; not available on Quantum. Don't rely on the RCI web site to be up to date and/or accurate.

Also there is an issue with the cruise planner.  On a 3 night cruise the UDP is 371sgd which is high considering on our 4 night it was advertised at 175 and below.  
 

also I tried to book a sushi class and it had it for days 7,8 and 11 of the cruise.   I think they may have rushed to add the new cruises to the system and it caused issues. 
 

As it was I booked a March cruise after they announced the extension and I could only book an inside guarantee. There was no option to pick my own room so inventory may not be fully loaded properly yet.

I guess the question is can they just have Sky class and temporarily delete Star class or it’s an IT glitch

While anything is possible in this COVID era, it is very unlikely RCI would mess around with established Royal Suite class categories. You can blame just about anything on an RCI IT glitch.

They should just simplify it to regular class and sky class for suites. Much simpler

 

It may be simpler but there is a huge difference in benefits between Sea, Sky and Star classes.  I’m not so sure those paying the Star Class suite prices would like seeing their benefits cut.

The whole point of Suite Class is to have different levels to allow for maximum revenue. Otherwise RCI would have left O and Q class ships the same as the other classes which don't have Suite class. RCI is not trying to make life simple for you, but max the revenue to them.

Then their IT needs to catch up

With many live trip reports already from Quantum, would anyone be interested in seeing another one? I'll be going next month and wanted to see if there was interest for a semi-live report.

Considering no one else is doing one, I'm sure most would enjoy it, especially with regards to any changes from earlier sailings.
