Just got the email from Casino Royale. Free cruise for two in an interior room. Any ship, any length, any CARIBBEAN itinerary. My wife is on the computer looking now!

So did I. I have been waiting for a rep on the phone for 50 minutes so far. It has gone from $200 credit to book on board on my last day of my last cruise 2/29/2020, to $50 credit in the week after, to $200 credit after that, and now a free interior stateroom for two.  Might as well book it, right? Wonder what the cancellation policy would be.

A great offer for us and hoping we are all back sailing again soon!  My daughter is a high school senior and praying we will be able to do her graduation cruises (B2B on Indy) May 25.   Yesterday they postponed her graduation from May 22until June 26.  However, I am thankful they are still trying to have a ceremony for the kids.

I just asked @michelle to book the CR offer 20RBO103 for me.  I'm turning our Dec 2020 Oasis into a B2B (we are already booked on 12-6).  She was on hold for EVER, gave up, waited a while, called back and got an agent within minutes.  Go figure.  The very weird thing is....they would not allow access to this booking as a travel agent.  She was able to put it on hold and get a casino price but will not be able to access it.  I have never known this to happen before.  I don't know whether I will be able to move it over to her once I get it going or not.  Once I get a detailed cost I can determine what kind of casino discount they are giving me on the upgrade.  If it's reasonable, I will put down the deposit and keep it.  If not, I will remove the hold.  I won't know until I get a confirmation.

Not sure if this is helpful at all to you but my invoice said ‚ÄúCasino Free‚ÄĚ as the line item that subtracted the cruise fair.

Will like to know how this works out. I am an insurance agent for AAA. If I book through AAA, or book directly and move it over, I get about 10% rebate, which is equal to the TA commission on the booking.

I had a celebrity booking for her the other day, but even with my info and Mlife number they wouldn’t let her get the rate either. I had to book, and since it’s past final payment she probably won’t be able to transfer it.

I just called Casino and they explained to me travel agents are not going to get commission for this offer. They wouldn't tell me why but if I had to guess its because they are even letting people book Thanksgiving cruises. Which is something they NEVER do. The offer is amazing and I am annoyed I cant make my commission off of it but i understand Royal is basically trying to save some money by not paying TA's and getting gamblers on the ships so they will spend money..

I figured as much.  Sucks, really.

Once you book your casino offer let us know if the gratuities have gone up.  I just booked mine and the suites gratuity is now $19 PP/PD.

The upgrade discount was 38% which is about what it was last year so I'm relieved that they aren't going even lower.  2 years ago it would have been around 60%.

I am considering upgrading to a junior suite because I have a $1000 FCC I need to use back from Hurricane Dorian that I tried to use for my March Symphony cruised that just got canceled lol. But as you know the Casino's upgrades always have odd math so I have no idea what price they will give me. I am upset they won't let us use this offer for Odyssey because I would still gamble the same but I get it they don't need to fill that ship.. When I do book I will tell you what the grats say for me. I am not sure when I am going to book but as soon as I do I will let you know if it says mine went up or not.

AND - for those who get an offer that has the SUN word in it, TAs should be able to book those - its just certain offers we can't
