Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: May 10, 2020
Happy Mother's Day! All the moms out there deserve a big hug, thank you, and hopefully a cruise booking too.
Royal Caribbean unveiled an expanded ability to cancel and rebook cruises earlier this week.
The "enhanced & extended Cruise with Confidence policy" offers guests the ability to cancel up to 48-hours prior to sailing in exchange for a 100% Future Cruise Credit on sailings through April 2022 for bookings made on-or-before August 1, 2020.
In addition, a new "Lift & Shift" program was announced to move a cruise to a similar sailing one year away.
On top of all of that, Royal Caribbean relaxed its Best Price Guarantee up to 48-hours prior to their cruise vacation start date, ensuring the best rate and/or promotion.
