Keep reading to learn about Thanksgiving season specials, and what to expect from all the savings each cruise offer includes.
The first step to really taking advantage of specials like our Black Friday cruise deals and Cyber Monday savings is understanding the benefits each promotion includes. Deals like instant savings and onboard credit are often available. Instant savings are deducted directly from your total vacation cost the moment you book. For example, if you see “Up to $200 in instant savings” advertised as part of a cruise offer, that means you’ll enjoy up to $200 off the total cost of your booking. The amount of instant savings you receive usually depends on the stateroom category you book — higher stateroom categories, like suites, enjoy the most savings. On the other hand, if you see “onboard credit” advertised as part of a cruise offer, that means you’ll score money to use onboard the cruise ship or ahead of your cruise on things like shore excursions, drink and dining packages, and more. The next step is making sure you take advantage right now, because our Black Friday and Cyber Monday offers are our best sales of the year.
Finally, keep an eye out for resident-only cruise specials. These deals usually apply to folks who live near a departure port, such as Florida, and often include instant savings in the form of a percentage off your cruise fare.
Make sure you review the specifics of the deal you’re interested in because they may change every year, and the terms and conditions may also change over time.
You’ll always find the best cruise deals listed on the website, but if you don’t want to be glued to your computer around the Thanksgiving holiday, you can just sign up with the cruise line’s newsletter to receive updates on sales and specials. The rich cruise offers that make up these huge deals often change several times over the course of a few days and can even be extended past their original deadlines, so it definitely pays to stay up to date. By signing up, you’ll also receive notice when certain itineraries go on sale, whether it’s discounts on Caribbean cruises, Alaska cruises, Europe cruises, and beyond. The cruise ship and itinerary length you choose can also determine how much you save. These email updates will help you stay in the travel deals loop without having to hit refresh on your browser every ten minutes
While the bulk of your cruise discount and added-value perks will definitely be contained within your Black Friday travel deals, you can supplement your savings by joining a loyalty program. These programs sometimes offer deals on things like drink and dining packages or stateroom category upgrades, and sometimes include freebies like complimentary happy hour in a members-only lounge, vouchers to attend exclusive onboard activities, and other sweet perks you and your family can enjoy during your sailing. Our loyalty program is called Crown & Anchor® Society, and joining is easy. All you have to do is complete a sailing onboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ship and you’ll automatically become a member. The more you cruise, the higher your membership tier and the more offers and perks you’ll get to enjoy.
Once you’ve booked your cruise getaway using a Black Friday cruise deal or our Cyber Monday sale, you can keep the savings going strong by taking advantage of cruise offers on your favorite onboard experiences, which you can book online via Cruise Planner. All inclusive deals, like our Ultimate Beverage Package or our Taste of Royal dining package, are some of our best cruise deals. They’re a great way to rack up the savings on cocktails and delicious food onboard versus paying a la carte. And by booking things like shore excursions and spa treatments online via Cruise Planner ahead of your vacation, you can often score discounts like instant savings.
Hopefully by now, you’re feeling a little more confident about navigating the big, wide world of cruise offers and sales — especially when it comes to Black Friday and Cyber Week. No matter which offer you end up using to book, rest assured you’ll be maximizing your value both onboard and ahead of your vacation.
