Royal Caribbean announces new way to book a hotel before your cruise

Royal Caribbean has a new way to book a hotel before or after your cruise vacation.

The new Royal Caribbean Hotels program launched today, which is a partnership with Priceline.

It's a common practice for anyone flying to their cruise ship to come in at least a day in advance, as well as stay an extra day after the cruise ends. This gives guests extra time to explore the city they are departing from, as well as guard against travel delays.

The new hotels program aims to give cruisers an easy way to lock in a pre- or post-cruise stay.

Royal Caribbean says this new program offers exclusive rates with thousands of hotels in every Royal Caribbean departure and arrival port, including those in the Caribbean, Europe, Asia-Pacific as well as North, South and Central America.

Hotel search results can easily be filtered based on the number of travelers in your group, the sailing’s departure or arrival city, and dates — plus preferences such as hotel rating, amenities and more.

Another advantage of booking through Royal Caribbean Hotels is Royal Caribbean will cover guest’s hotel cancellation fees if Royal cancels or modifies the associated cruise, whether or not within final payment.

Royal Caribbean Hotels is available immediately for anyone residing in the United States, Canada, and Mexico booking a Royal Caribbean cruise.

Some helpful tips about Royal Caribbean Hotels:

  • The ability to earn hotel loyalty points will depend on the property you select.
  • Transfers between the hotel and pier are not included in this pricing.
