Does Royal Caribbean Cruise have Black Friday sales?
Royal Caribbean Cruise Black Friday deals are offering instant savings of up to $600 per stateroom on sailings departing on, or after, December 18, 2022. The company is also offering 30 per cent savings off the cruise fare for all guests in the stateroom, which is applied to the cruise fare at checkout.
- Sailings 5 nights or less: $75 for Interior and Ocean View, $125 for Balconies and $200 for Suites
- Sailings 6 nights or longer: $100 for Interior and Ocean View, $150 for Balconies, $600 for Suites
The “Kids Sail Free” deal provides free cruise fare for the third guests and higher in a cabin, as long as that guest is a child age 12 or under at the date of departure booked in the same stateroom as the first two qualifying guests in a triple or quad-occupancy stateroom.
Royal Caribbean Cruise drinks packages
While add-ons and perks are generally already included in the Black Friday deal, Royal Caribbean does offer several drinks packages to book prior to departure.
The basic package is the “Water Package” which means six, 12 or 24 packs of water will be delivered to your stateroom. The “Classic Soda Package” is next where guests will be able to access fountain soda and refills at any venue, Coca-Cola freestyle beverages and get a Coca-Cola souvenir cup.
The “Refreshment Package” includes all the same as the ones cheaper than it, alongside non-alcoholic cocktails (mocktails), still and sparkling water, premium coffees and teas and fresh-squeezed juices.
The “Deluxe Beverage Package” takes things to a new level as along with all that’s included in the previous deal guests will also be able to enjoy cocktails, spirits, liquor, beer and wine by the glass. Guests with this package also receive a 40 per cent discount on bottled wines priced up to $100, and a 20 per cent discount on wine prices above $100.
When do Royal Caribbean’s Black Friday 2022 deals start?
While in the cruise industry the best deals are typically on offer during “Wave Season” – the first three months of the calendar year – the cruise company is promising some huge deals for 2022.
As with previous years, Royal Caribbean is combining Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales into a weeklong “Cyber Week Sale”.
This year the cruise deals will run between November 18 and November 22, 2022. And the sale even opens today, a day early on November 17, for Crown and Anchor guests.
