Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: January 10, 2016

10 Jan 2016
Matt Hochberg

Good news, we are all one week closer to our next Royal Caribbean cruise!  In case you missed any of the Royal Caribbean fun from this week, here is our weekly round up!

The Royal Caribbean news everyone was talking about was the rise in price of the unlimited alcohol packages.

Royal Caribbean rose the prices of its unlimited alcohol and non-alcoholic drink packages a bit this week. The increases ranged from less than a dollar to a few dollars per day.

This was the first change in the base price of the drink packages since Royal Caribbean introduced the drink packages in late 2012.
