Royal Caribbean International is now going to remove perks for the travellers who were booking a specific type of stateroom on the lines newest ships. The cruise line has said that it would discontinue complimentary perks for Oasis Class neighbourhood balcony staterooms and Boardwalk or Park View Balcony staterooms.
Formerly called as Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, the cruise line brand, has informed travel agents that it would discontinue the Dine, Drink, Discover package on all sailings after January 1, 2020.
The perk package was earlier being offered onboard Oasis-class ships to guests staying in Boardwalk or Park View Balcony staterooms. While passengers staying in Boardwalk Balcony staterooms were being given a complimentary meal up to four guests, a soda package and an exclusive session at the rock-climbing wall for two guests were being offered at the Johny Rockets.
Those who stayed in Park View Balcony received a complimentary lunch for two at one of the several speciality restaurants besides a bottle of red wine and the opportunity to have a private gaming lesson in the casino.
Both the Boardwalk and Park View balconies overlook the interior sections and rest above the walkways, attractions and restaurants found there, much contrary to the traditional stateroom balconies.
The letter is given by the cruise line to the travel agents clearly states that the guests (booked before September 18, 2019, in neighbourhood balconies sailing from January 1, 2020, through April 2021) will receive a $50 non-refundable onboard credit per stateroom as consolation money.
“Royal Caribbean will continue to offer countless ways for its clients to make unforgettable memories on board. We are going to introduce some game-changing updates to our inventory and amenity offerings in the coming months,” says the letter issued by the cruise line.
Headquartered in Miami, the United States, the cruise line happens to be the largest one on the account of revenue generation and also on the account of passenger count. The cruise line controls 19.2 per cent of the worldwide cruise market by passengers and 14.0 per cent by revenue. Most of the world’s largest ships come under this cruise line.
