This is the same sale that has gone on the entire summer. So, actually, it isn't a Labor Day sale. Just a "sucker is born everyday" sale! 😂

There are so many sales these days I can see how people get confused.  50% off second guest based on the elusive "regular" price not off the last sale price that folks likely booked when they did.  

I guess this means I need to reprice all my cruises - just in case.  Expectations set accordingly.

I have voiced my frustration on the so called sales that RCCL publishes every minute of the day.  It truly is for the people that have no clue which I feel bad for!  Don't get me wrong, RCCL does have some great deals on cruises but it's only the ones that they are having a hard time filling.  Yes, I also get they are a business trying to make money so they will prey on those who do not do their homework!

As long as they still make a hefty profit they don't have to put in deep sales and as far as I can tell they don't have issues selling cabins. They do the sales to let people think they are getting a bargain; no different than what malls and car dealerships do on a routine basis. As a consumer we are always looking for the deal, and as long as we feel we got a deal, we feel good and companies go on making us feel good with sales advertising.  It's win-win for the consumer to big business dynamic.

How many people go on a RC cruise even know about this site to get information? I did only because I am a researcher and have to always look for "the deal." There is a wealth of knowledge in these pages but only a select set of people will ever run across this blog to get a detailed understanding of the "inner RC."

Prince valiant us, No need to be rude but It’ll do magic believe it or not, bippity-boppity-boo is what disney’s Cinderella’s fairy godmother who is a Disney character would say and is not in anyway affiliated with royal caribbean. Get your cruise lines straight.

Not being rude at all. My response was from the Wizard of Oz, no reference to any cruise line.This post started out as a joke, if you truly followed along, you would have picked that up. I also know the difference between every cruise line that there is as I have cruised approximately 40 years. We all are here to enjoy this great blog, share our different experiences and opinions and have a little fun along the way.  Sit back, relax, and have a Mimosa on me!  🍹🍹🍹🍹🍹🍹🍹

If you can't tell i'm more of the serious type.

Tried to see if it was worth upgrading to a JS (from spacious balcony). According to MEI Casino wanted an additional $356 for a 3-nighter on Enchantment. She was going to try again today since the price difference on the site is less than $100 per person.
