Caution regarding RCCI Prime Day Sale

Recommended Posts

Be careful of the Royal Caribbean Prime Day Sale I checked it out. Seems like a bait and switch to me. (IMOj

their ad reads buy one deluxe beverage (small print shows a price of $49) get the second one for 50% off!  Generally if I go online to .target, or Amazon or... I could buy something for $49 and then the second item would be $24.50.
However on Royal Caribbean, This is NOT a buy one at $49 and buy the second one at $24.50 plus the 18% tip for a total of  of approx $616 for a seven day cruise.   No Their charge of ($49 *2)*1.18) *7= $809!  

I called them thinking it was a glitch in their computer system. No.
Their answer is that the $49.00 is already discounted from their normal $63. 
Thus, both deluxe beverages are already on sale at a 25% discount thus together that equal a 50% discount.

 Wow, Don’t know who does their math there but here that doesn’t work in my business!

That is exactly why I don't pay any attention to the sales banners on their ads. I just look at the bottom line price and if I feel comfortable with that price I buy it. If it goes down again I always cancel and rebook. This alleviates me from having to do any of their fuzzy math in my head. Thanks for the heads up!

Always been that way.  Just look at the price and that is what it is

This has been reported and discussed ad nauseam here on this Forum.  Move along.  Nothing to see here.

It’s always been that way - just like the BOGO fares have the reduced rate for the additional pax factored in when they show the “starting from” price listed on cabins.

As someone new to RCCL, the term I would use for their sales is..bull****.  Seriously, I get an email EVERY day about sales and everything is the same price as it was last week and the week before - except when they screwed up and had an $18 cost for the adult beverage package (which I missed).  It is like the boy who called wolf.  Just a big waste of my time, and while I am looking forward to our RCCL cruise in December, this is something I would defintely put in the "negative" column.

Yet you still felt inclined to not only click and read but post in the thread?

 

clearly it’s not new for OP, so why don’t you move along.
