Casino Royale


Recommended Posts

I have some on-line offers from Casino Royale.  If it is a free 7 night cruise, I'm guessing that I have to pay taxes & fees?  If I submit the form, does that commit me?  Do I get to pick the cabin?  Any other advice?  Thanks!  Kris

No you're not committed. You're given a couple of days to pay it off and if not paid it will be cancelled and the offer will be gone. They pick the cabin. You can call and request another cabin within the same category.

Yes, you are responsible for the port fees and taxes.  You're not limited to the interior only cabin either. (if that's what you have) If you would prefer a different category, you can upgrade if you would like for an additional fee. I would recommend calling them with any questions you might have.  I received my first offer this past year for the free room and the CSR I spoke with was very helpful.  They can let you know what your cost will be for the sailing you select.

I picked my own balcony cabin on my next cruise. 8 day cruise. Had to be a 4D which was my selection anyway.

I always talk to a real, live person and make sure the booking is done to my liking. It is a waste of time doing something online, then fixing it later. Yes, you pay the port fee and taxes (only) along with insurance, if you chose.

You can call (We do) and arrange it all. If you want to upgrade then they will give you an upgrade price. We have a 7 night trip on Oasis middle of October out of NJ and sorted it all out over the phone as we are taking our eldest Granddaughter, then a week later her mum (eldest Daughter) decided to jump on board so had to call again and sort it out, all done and a a little extra cost. Our free cruise has ended up costing a lot more due to flights from the UK and back but it is what it is and it is only 3 weeks after we have sailed on Odyssey around the Med. cannot wait.

Call....online is a waste of time for a casino booking.

Yes, taxes and fees.  Got a $500 trade-in offer in my account and was able to apply to an 8 niter on Anthem for sailing on February 4th.  When I initially cashed the offer on-line, I requested a balcony cabin. After a day, I got confirmation, they assigned a virtual balcony cabin.😜 Called and was able to upgrade to a balcony cabin for an additional $5.  In essence an 8 niter for $227.

So, another question.....I took my first Celebrity cruise 6 months ago and loved it!  I know Royal owns Celebrity (or whatever the connection is).  Will I get any Celebrity offers & how would I see that?  Thanks!

May want to ask on celebrity threads.   

Royal caribbean has a website.  Clubroyaleoffers.com where we can check offers.   I'm not sure about celebrity.

I recently had an offer for free interior on Anthem for December and called to book.  After she applied my balcony discount for Diamond I ended up getting a free upgrade from an int to OVB and just had to pay taxes/port fees.
