Will There Be Memorial Day Sale in Cruise Planner?


Recommended Posts

Has anyone been made aware of a cruise planner sale for Memorial Day?  I haven't seen anything this year and would have expected it to start by now.

 

Thoughts?

Ours for October is $71pp which I think is the highest I have seen and it's only a 5 day.

I was just able to lower my Voom Surf for 2 devices from $25.99/day to $21.99 per day saving about $30.  hope the booze and internet drops more tomorrow.  On Adventure June19.

Just curious, what do you all think is a "good" price for that package? I was one of the lucky/unlucky people that got the glitch alchohol package for $20/day and then saw it go away with Covid cancellations. I never could see spending $60 a day. Not sure what I would pay....

Most would say anything between 40-50 is a great deal.

I always smuggle my free drinks from the casino to various places.    On Sea days I love to get my strawberry dacquiries from casino and take to my pool lounger.

In the last year the best price for Voom stream and surf price was $19.99 for 3 devices.    I saw that sale several times this winter but I wasn't buying anything on cruise planner till I knew they were actually sailing.     hopefully we will see a sale this weekend, maybe start Thursday night or Friday morning?

My Serenade in August is sitting at $54 right now.  I'm pretty sure that the weekend sale will get me down to my desired <$50

This sale looks exactly like the last one.  I doubt we'll see the 40% off sale like they were offering last winter again.

 

Some of the prices (specifically drink packages) have already been adjusted to the sale prices even though the sale hasn't officially begun yet, and the banners still show the "normal" discount.  The banners will update tomorrow, but don't expect any further drop in prices.

Well shoot... I noticed the refreshment package for my next cruise was marked down, but still not as low as I was hoping for. I was hoping for $20 pp/pd, it's at $23.

For our September cruise on Enchantment, I booked the beverage package at $18/day on Black Friday weekend. When I looked this past weeend, it was listed at $30/day. I think all prices will be higher than they were pre-shutdown.

As there was no sale this past weekend, that $30 price sounds more like the normal Refreshment Package price not the Deluxe Beverage Package price.

New to Royal...does the marked price in your cruise planner include the 18% gratuity or is that added after adding to the cart?

 

Also, if I purchase it now and it reduces in price can I re price it and/or get a refund/OBC?

The prices quoted do not include the 18% gratuity.

 

If you purchase now you have the opportunity to cancel and rebook if you see a lower advertised price or you can cancel and get a full refund.

It's a little more complicated than that. Royal Caribbean is in the process of migrating to a new Cruise Planner online shop.

 

If you are buying from a sailing using the old format, the beverage packages pricing does not include the gratuity but dining packages do already include the gratuity.

 

If you are buying for a sailing that has migrated to the new shop, both beverage packages and dining packages pricing does not include the gratuity and it will be added and shown during checkout. Additionally some shore excursion items -- CocoCay activities mostly I believe -- now also separately show the local taxes collected, and they were not previously collected at all.

 

The old format Cruise Planner will look like this:

The new format Cruise Planner aka My Royal Cruise will look like this:

If you purchased something when the old cruise planner form was in use, and you come back later and find your sailing is now using the new format is when you need to take some care to ensure you're comparing prices on things correctly, knowing that the new cruise planner will show gratuities and potentially local taxes on things differently than they were presented previously.
