Deluxe Drinks Package On European Sailings - £40 pppd


Recommended Posts

My wife noticed an offer on the Deluxe Drinks Package that was posted on a Facebook group. This is for European sailings of 5 nights or above and represents a huge saving.

The offer is only available on Live Chat and although the offer advertised has expired, Royal Caribbean have extended it.

Today's price is £71.05 pppd, but if you contact Royal Caribbean on Live Chat they will add it to your outstanding balance at £40 pppd (in fact it's slightly under, as the cost per person for the 7 night sailing is £275)

In the UK they are still honouring it, with people confirming as late as this morning still receiving it. I unfortunately don't agree with sharing this promotion here or on social media as it's not available worldwide and if I was USA/Canada based I would be very upset, just my opinion.

There is always going to be disparity between pricing and offers in different countries (and the UK is usually on the rough end of it).

Is it fair that the drinks package today is $73.99 in the US (at current exchange rates that's £62) compared to £71.05 in the UK?

On the respective US & UK homepages at this moment, in the US there's 30% off for all guests & kids sail free. In the UK we have reduced deposits & kids sail from £99.

Lets also not forget the most important difference....repricing!!

Its only due to covid that the UK can reprice cruises now and im pretty sure this will be removed in the future to go back to how it was before!

How do you access live chat? All I can see is phone numbers.

It's not obvious or easy.....

I think if you linger on the contact us page long enough, a live chat box will pop up on the bottom left of the screen.

Has anyone actually managed to get this drinks package at £40 PPPD using live chat ?

Yes, I ordered it yesterday. It was added to my balance (although I had already paid the balance of the cruise).

I spoke to them just now. Even though I am European, I booked through an American website and my booking is not eligible.

So, not valid for cruises booked in/through the USA.

 

Everybody of us booked through an american website???

Booked Anthem from Southampton next month.They want nearly £2000 for 2 people for 14 nights.Absolutely scandalous.Our first cruise and we get hit by this.

Yes this was a bit of surprise when we booked our first cruise recently, though ours is only 5 nights. Would have been nice to have known this at time of booking. I'd wait until they do a sale when the price comes to around £50pppd (or less if they offer that!). You will still pay around £1,400 for the trip though, so depends how much drinking you're planning on doing! You might find that by the end of week 1 you're not at the same pace that you were earlier in the cruise...

I can confirm that this is still be offered today in Live Chat. As I had already booked it a higher price, they refunded my money and just added it to the booking. They also changed us to MTD too. Very helpful and saved waiting on the phone for ages.

Interesting. 

I called RCL Germany - they do not have access to this offer.

I chatted with RCL UK - my bookings are French bookings, they don't have access to them.

I called RCL France - they don't have access to my bookings as they are german bookings.

 

Weirdo.

Big thank you to @Stephen!

When I finally managed to get on chat this morning the operator was rude and completely useless. The agent refused to check the offer, quoted £360pp as that is what the system says, and would not look into this Facebook promotion at all. Genuinely a terrible experience on chat.

I decided to call whilst waiting for responses from the chat agent, and the lady I spoke to immediately acknowledged the offer at £275pp and added to the booking!! The difference between the two channels was night and day.

Big saving on the drinks package for our first RC Cruise on Wonder next week (29 May) from Barcelona. Thanks again Stephen for sharing!!
