Has anyone heard if the "The Key" is going to continue into 2020? When calling RC they said the corporate offices hadn't decided yet if the program would continue. When I go into the Cruise Planner for our 2020 cruises "The Key" is not listed as an option (it appears and then disappears).

Why would you be so concerned where someone else spends their money?  I can see why you wouldn't want to do it, but why plea for someone else not to? How could it possibly affect you? I got it fo

The Key just became available today for our Feb 2020 Harmony cruise and the price is $37.99 😳

I got the key for $24.99 for our September 13th 2019 sailing on the Navigator. I'm cool with that 🙂 We spend exactly how we feel like it within our budget (usually)

I just think it's way too early.  There's no rhyme or reason when things show up in the Cruise Planner.  All of the dining package options have been available for my Oct 2020 sailing since I booked it last Feb, but for my Symphony cruise in Feb 2020 there's still just Jamie's and the 3-night option (and that just showed up last week). Go figure.

I am having the same issue with a January 2020 Empress sailing.  The dining and beverage options just appeared about 2 weeks ago, still no excursions except Labadee, key, internet or anything other than a few of their "gifts" available.  It seems very random, but I know the things will eventually show up.

 

Actually the key wasn't there earlier today, but just showed up at $24.99.  Probably not worth it on this ship.

We are still waiting for The Key to show up for our February 16, 2020 cruise - I was hoping to get it at $19.99 but anything more than $24.99 doesn't seem worth it to me! The $31.99 and $37.99 price tags listed above seem ridiculous. But then again I suppose it's all about supply and demand. Hopefully no one buys it at those price points so the price drops.

I messaged them yesterday and was told the Key would appear 60-90 days before sailing. An hour later it was on my planner (250+ days out).  It's listed at $31.99. I paid 19.99 for an Oasis Class 7 night last May. This is a 12 night on a Voyager class...no way we will pay more than 24.99 for it.

It used to be that the facebook messenger group was very reliable. Lately it seems like they use stock answers whether or not it's applicable to your situation. Very unfortunate.

 At the current price of $31.99 a nine night cruise would cost two of us $575. Voom for 2  Devices is listed at $23.98 (x9) would be $216

voom for 1 device is 12.99 (x9) totals $117 ( just want to be able to keep in touch with home).  Maybe on a shorter cruise with my teens (they would want voom and stream and use all the activities) this would be for us, this time I’ll put the $450 difference toward my Excursions.

Those are my exact calculations in my head of at what price point would I buy it.  Mine came available at $31.99 which if there is a 20% off sale it would be  $25.60 or if a 30% off sale it would be  $22.40. At either of those price points I would think about it because I am going to get Voom for one device anyways, and that is $111, so subtract that and my price is in the mid $200's and I could live with that.

I have had The Key once so far, and I loved the perks, but there are price points I find palatable and others not so much. At $31.99PP it is not a value to me.

Dec 2020 Anthem has Key available now in the cruise planner... for the bargain price of $37.99. 

Sadly, people are probably paying that... I guess I would rather put the $1600 it would cost my family of 6 towards an upgraded cabin! At $20/day I considered it for my Enchantment cruise, but then decided it wasn't worth it because the perks on that ship just aren't there.

I booked our first cruise ever for this past July last December,  watched the cruise planner almost every day and bought the key for $19.99 and the deluxe beverage package for $49 plus gratuities on Symphony.  I just booked a May 2020 cruise today on harmony today (thanks Stehpanie from MEI) and the key is $37.99 and the deluxe beverage package is $65 before gratuities.  No way I'll pay those prices, so I will be stalking the cruise planner for sure.

I doesn't show up for my January 2020 cruise either, unless it is sold out????

The Key shows for my Symphony of the Seas Jan, 2020 on the cruise planner. If I recall correctly I saw it for $29 dollars /day per person. I can double check when I get home today if you're still interested.
