Did Black Friday sales save you money on your cruise?

In:
27 Nov 2020

Royal Caribbean joined in on the Black Friday offers with its own offers, but the question is did it save people money on their cruise vacation?

Royal Caribbean has two Black Friday offers that run the entire week between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday, and offer deals on cruise fares as well as pre-cruise purchases.

Each year, many cruise fans wait in anticipation of what offer might be available, and until the actual promotion begins, it is impossible to know how significant the actual savings will be.

Royal Caribbean's Black Friday 2020 offer

Royal Caribbean's Cyber Week Sale runs between November 24 - December 1, 2020 and offer a bundle of savings, with up to $550 off cruise fares.

Guests can combine the Cyber Week Sale with the November monthly offer, which provides 60% off the second guest, and kids sail free.

In addition, there is a Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale on pre-cruise add-ons, like drink packages, shore excursions, wifi and more.

Both the cruise fare sale and the Cruise Planner sale run through early next week, so you do not have to book on Black Friday or Cyber Monday to take advantage of the offer.

Did anyone save money?

Like most Royal Caribbean promotions, savings vary from person to person. There is rarely any one promotion that gives an across the board discount.

Depending on if you had something booked already, or were looking to book a new cruise today, the perceived discount differed.

RoyalCaribbeanBlog readers shared their experiences on the message boards, and the general consensus was there were deeper discounts on the cruise add-on purchases, than the cruise fare promotion.

Luckily for USFFrank, the deal on the non-alcoholic beverage package came out quite cheap, "For my Harmony of the Seas cruise next November, the refreshment package is $18.00. That's the cheapest I've ever paid for that particular beverage package going back several cruises and I'm surprised it's this low nowadays."

Lovetocruise2002 bought a drink package as the only deal she ran across, "Nothing stands out on any of my sailings either.  All I did was grab the drink package for 2 sailings (later in 2021) in case what some of us suspect holds true (that those prices will jump once sailings resume)."

USCG Teacher did not find better deals today because they had take advantage of previous sales, "So far this Black Friday has been a bit of a dud for me.  The All Access Tour went from $130 to $90, so that was great, but no savings to be found anywhere else.  That said, I had already repurchased most of my items back during the past Cruise Planner sale and found some really terrific deals then."

Most people that talked about what they found indicated prices for cruises were at what they paid already, or higher, because these smart planners had booked earlier and taken advantage of previous price drops.

Royal Caribbean allows guests to take advantage of a price drop and reprice their cruise with no penalty up until final payment date. This includes guests from around the world, thanks to a more flexible Best Price Guarantee program that was altered earlier this year.

As long as the price drops for the same ship and sail date that has been booked previously, and it is before final payment date, you can take advantage of the lower price while simultaneously ensuring the price does not jump up.

Why were there not better deals?

While Black Friday conjures up notions of bargain-basement super low prices on appliances, clothing, or electronics, cruise fares do not have such drastic price swings.

In fact, the cruise industry sees its most aggressive pricing during the early part of the year in what the industry refers to as "wave season".

Wave season takes place between January and March, and is a reflection of the fact most people book their cruise vacations during the early part of the year. Essentially, unpleasant winter weather and an empty calendar for the coming year lead many to look to book a cruise.

In order to jump on the increased demand, cruise lines tend to roll out their better promotions during wave season in order to convince people to book.

In addition, Royal Caribbean has monthly sales and promos throughout the year that keep the prices moving.

Certainly Royal Caribbean is not one to shy away from joining in the Black Friday buzz, but cruise fare pricing is not the same as televisions, phones, or video games.

Avoid this Black Friday cruise booking mistake

In:
23 Nov 2020

Royal Caribbean revealed its Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals for 2020, but waiting to book your cruise once these sales begin is actually a mistake.

Unlike a Black Friday deal at a retail store, the prices of a Royal Caribbean cruise can fluctuate greatly and new promotions do not affect each sailing in the same way.

If you want to ensure you get the lowest price on your cruise, take advantage of this tried-and-true trick for saving the most money on your Royal Caribbean cruise.

Don't wait & book now

Royal Caribbean's Black Friday deals kick off on November 24, but what you should do is book now before the sale begins.

Royal Caribbean allows guests to take advantage of a price drop and reprice their cruise with no penalty up until final payment date. This includes guests from around the world, thanks to a more flexible Best Price Guarantee program that was altered earlier this year.

If there is a cruise you want to book, what you should do is book it now and lock in the price.  Then, when the Black Friday sale kicks off, if the price is lower, you can reprice it and take advantage of that price.

By booking now, you guard against a price increase. When new sales begin, it gets a lot of attention and the Black Friday sale is definitely one of those situations.

As people begin booking rooms, prices start going up because there is less inventory to browse. 

As long as the price drops for the same ship and sail date that has been booked previously, and it is before final payment date, you can take advantage of the lower price while simultaneously ensuring the price does not jump up.

You can do this with cruise add-ons too

In addition to booking early and then repricing later for cruise fare, you can apply this strategy to pre-cruise purchases, such as drink packages, shore excursions and more.

Royal Caribbean will have a Black Friday sale on cruise add-ons beginning later this week

When going through Royal Caribbean's Cruise Planner website, it is very easy to track the price of these items.  Book what you know you want now, and then see what happens when the Black Friday sale (or any other sale) does to the price.

If you spot a lower price, you can cancel the previous purchase through the Cruise Planner site and then immediately rebook at the lower price.

There are no penalties for doing this, and you can do this all the way up to a few days before your sail date.

What you should do right now to prepare for Black Friday

If you are looking over this Black Friday offer and thinking it sounds like a great deal, you should still book something right now.

One of the best strategies for saving money on a cruise is to book early and re-price it if there is a price drop.

Booking a cruise today will lock in the current price.  When the Black Friday sale begins next week, if there is a better price, you can have the cruise repriced for you under the Best Price Guarantee.

Up until Final Payment date, you can reprice the price of a cruise as many times as you want if you happen to spot a lower price.

With the enhanced Cruise with Confidence program, this opportunity is available to all guests, not just North Americans.

By booking a cruise now, you can ensure you have the lowest price.  If the price on Black Friday is lower, you can reprice at the lower price.  If the price happens to go up, you already locked in the lower rate and are set.

The strategy of booking early and then taking advantage of price drops ensure you always have the lowest price, as opposed to trying to time a price drop later (which may or may not happen).

How to check if the price is lower

The most straight forward method for seeing if there is a price drop is to go to Royal Caribbean's website and do a mock booking. 

Be sure to go through as much of the checkout process as you can to ensure you are comparing exactly what you have booked, as things like cruise fare (refundable vs non-refundable), gratuities, taxes and other fees may not be levied until later in the checkout.

Another option is to let you travel agent handle this for you.  Some travel agents (the really good ones) will take it upon themslves to check for lower prices on behalf of their clients.

I recommend this travel agency for booking a Royal Caribbean cruise, and they will reprice for you during sales like this. If you are not convinced using a free travel agency right for you, read this post discussing the benefits travel agents offer.

A look back at Royal Caribbean's past Black Friday deals

In:
05 Nov 2020

Black Friday is not only a major retail sales event, but the cruise lines get into the action as well with their own set of deals and promotions.

Royal Caribbean has not revealed what its Black Friday deals will be, nor if we can expect any kind of Black Friday promotion.

While we wait to see what deals might be offered in 2020, here is a look back at the last few Black Friday offers to get a sense of what has been offered in the past. It is important to note that past promotions are not indicative of what might be coming this year.

What is Black Friday?

If you are unaware, Black Friday is a major sales event in primarily the United States, where there are major sales the day after the Thanksgiving holiday to kick off the unofficial start to the holiday shopping season.

Traditionally, retailers offer their best deals of the year on Black Friday in order to kick-start their best sales times, and you typically see crazy low prices on consumer electronics and other goods.

The cruise lines have gotten into the spirit of the event, by offering their own promotions.  Cruise lines typically have their best offers in the early part of the year during Wave Season, but since so many consumers are looking for new sales, Royal Caribbean has offered some too.

Black Friday 2019

Royal Caribbean offered a Black Friday and Cyber Monday deal in 2019, although it was effectively the same offer. 

The Cyber Weekend sale ran between November 27 - December 2, 2019.

  • 60% off second guest
  • Instant savings up to $300 off
  • Kids Sail Free

In addition, there was a Black Friday sale on pre-cruise purchases such as up to 50% off Beverage Packages. Plus, up to 65% off Internet, up to 30% off Shore Excursions, up to 55% off Dining Packages, and up to 40% off Gifts and Gear.

The Cyber Monday Cruise Planner sale runs between November 27 - December 3, 2019.

Black Friday 2018

Royal Caribbean's Black Friday and Cyber Monday deal in 2018 offered a very similar deal to the 2019 offer.

The Cyber Weekend sale ran between November 22, 2018 – November 27, 2018.

  • 60% off second guest
  • 30% off third guests and higher in same room as first two qualified guests
  • Instant savings up to $300 off
  • Kids Sail Free

The 2018 Cyber Monday Cruise Planner sale offered up to 40% off pre-cruise purchases, including up to 40% off drink packages, up to 25% off excursions, up to 60% off internet and 20% off specialty dining.

The pre-cruise planner sale ran between November 23, 2018 - November 27, 2018.

Black Friday 2017

The Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal in 2017 had a sligtly different combination compared to 2018-2019.

  • 50% off second guest
  • 25% Savings for 3/4 guests “Kids Sail for Less”
  • Up to $400 Onboard Credit per stateroom
    • The extra $100 was for booking more than six months in advance

The 2017 Black Friday Sale on Cruise Planner purchases offered up to 30% off everything in the store, such as beverage packages, shore excursions and more.

Black Friday 2016

The 2016 Black Friday through Cyber Monday Super Sale ran between November 26 - 28, 2016.

  • 50% Reduced Deposits
  • Up to $300 Onboard Credit per stateroom
  • BOGO 50% off with 25% savings for 3rd and 4th guests
  • up to $100 Onboard Credit per stateroom

There was also a Cruise Planner sale in 2016 for pre-cruise purchases on beverage packages, shore excursions and more.

Black Friday 2015

In 2015, Royal Caribbean offered slightly different offers for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Black Friday offered:

  • 50% off second guest
  • 50% reduced deposit
  • Up to $300 per stateroom onboard credit
  • 25% off 3rd and 4th guests in a room
  • One Voom internet package for one device on Anthem, Harmony, Allure, Oasis, Freedom, and Enchantment of the Seas on sailings departing between May 1 - September 30, 2016.

The Cyber Monday sale was essentially the same as the Black Friday sale, but with a bit more onboard credit.

  • 50% off second guest
  • 50% reduced deposit
  • Up to $400 per stateroom onboard credit
  • 25% off 3rd and 4th guests in a room
  • One Voom internet package for one device on Anthem, Harmony, Allure, Oasis, Freedom, and Enchantment of the Seas on sailings departing between May 1 - September 30, 2016.

Should you wait until Black Friday to book a cruise?

If you want to get the best possible deal, your best bet is to actually book a cruise or cruise planner purchase now and rebook if the price goes down later.

There is no telling what Royal Caribbean's Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals will be in 2020, but the best strategy for getting the lowest price is to book now at current rates and then compare to thee new prices if/when a deal is announced later.

By booking now, you can lock in the current rates. If there is a better sale between now and Black Friday, you can always get a price adjustment.

One of the overlooked, yet quite significant, changes to booking terms as a result of the current cruise shutdown is Royal Caribbean's Best Price Guarantee has been expanded.

This means guests can now take advantage of price drops after final payment date, up until 48 hours before the cruise, and it applies to all countries.

Price variances will result in a rate adjustment if requested outside of final payment or a non-refundable onboard credit when inside final payment period.

Pre-cruise purchases for drink packages or excursions are even easier to cancel and rebook to take advantage of a lower price.

Since you can take advantage of price drops later, you do not have to worry that you missed a better deal in the weeks leading up to Black Friday.
