Where's the offers?

Recommended Posts

Given the depressed market, and needing to get bodies to spend on board, I would've anticipated being showered with offers for free cruises. I haven't seen much of anything yet. Maybe its just too early/too uncertain right now, but bring on the free cabins and free play! Anybody else getting good stuff yet?

Royal's Casino Royale has been sending out lots of the offers for a free junior suite and  $500 free play. 

Princess sent out free inside,$250 free play,free drinks and wifi,and we haven't sailed with them in over 2 years.

Carnival has rescheduled their Ultra cruises with free interior,$ 500 free play

I guess we just didn't make the cut! We've been Carnival cruisers for a while, but we took them up on a couple offers in the last 9-12 months and I guess didn't meet what they were after as far as play but I had hoped they'd lower their standards a little. We didn't get the ultras today- boo- our last cruise was Elite and it was great. We are supposed to be going on a Royal in August, but I don't know if I should be optimistic or not.

Carnival Ultras sent invites out today to the higher rollers, & the others will be sent out on Ap. 30 Thursday. First on your offers on Carnival's website, & then as an email. If you get it, it is  only for a limited amt. of cruises, in Sept'20 thru Jan'21.

Very nice Kwokpot!  We're not looped in with RC yet. We do have a free cruise because of our noir status in vegas. I wonder if they'll lift the "not on a holiday" restriction or if they'll extend the booking window for those. That'd be nice!

 

Our current offers (a getaway and a last minute offer thing) expire on 4/30...maybe they'll get replaced with ultras. Here's hoping!

I was offered from Princess for several sailings in 2021 an aft penthouse suite, $1000 free play, paid gratuities, wi-fi, and drink package. Chose a 3/2021 LA R/T CA coastal cruise on the Royal Princess.

I barely made Prime with Royal and have had two offers. Both oceanview with $150 freeplay:

 

July 15 through August 31 - booked Indy for July 20 (likely will be cancelled).

 

Sept 1 through Can't remember. Applied that to my Sept 20 Harmony trip and am now awaiting a $1500 refund.

 

Called the Prime line, annual certificates will go out on May 15.
