Beverage packages (again!)

Recommended Posts

I am cruising to Bermuda out of Baltimore in August and went onto My Cruises to look at excursions, dining, etc. I decided to get the Premium beverage package ($47/day regular price) when I saw it was being advertised at 20% off, as was the Ultimate package. So I loaded it into my cart but when I went to check out, the price was the full $47/ day plus the 18% gratuity (which I knew would be added!). There was no 20% discount. Has anyone else encountered this problem?

 

I remember some months back on this board there was a similar situation but the thread just seemed to peter out and I couldn't find out the resolution.

 

Before I get my TA involved and start calling RCL, I would appreciate any input from posters here who have had similar situations. Thanks!

The price you're seeing is the 20% off, although I don't recognize the $47/day price.

 

To give you some context from my experience, when I bought the Premium package for my last cruise, it was $49/day. I bought it for my upcoming cruise and it was $44/day (20% off). That doesn't make sense unless you think that Royal Caribbean may have increased the base price of the Premium package to around $59/day, which is certainly possible.

 

Given that NCL is now charging $79/day for their comparable package, I wouldn't be surprised to see Royal Caribbean raising their price.

Marc--That's what RCL did. When I looked ahead to our Feb. 2017 cruise, the Ultimate is now $67/day and the premium is $57/day, both plus grats. Bump up the price and run a "special." Certainly makes me want to recommend RCL to others! Lol!

It is definitely confusing how the pricing works exactly, but Marc is correct that the price you see is the discounted price.  

 

I think they should make it a bit easier to understand the exact pricing difference, but I think they went for simplistic (one price to display).
