Imagine sailing away on a luxurious cruise, savoring the sea breeze and soaking up the sun. But wait, what if there’s a way to enhance your experience even further? Enter the Royal Up Program.
The Royal Up Program, offered by Royal Caribbean, allows you to potentially score an upgrade to a higher stateroom category. Just think of the possibilities. You might find yourself in a spacious suite with breathtaking ocean views. And you can hopefully do that for cheaper than regular price!
How does the Royal Up Program work?
When eligible, you’ll receive an email invitation to participate in the Royal Up Program. Once you receive the invitation, it’s time to channel your inner explorer and embark on an upgrade journey. In the email, it will list possible staterooms that you can bid on. You will select the monetary amount that you are willing to pay for a specific stateroom upgrade. Be aware though! You are bidding on a “per person” amount. But it only applies to the first and second guest on the booking reservation. You will not be charged for third or higher guests if your offer is accepted. Additionally, if you are in a single occupancy booking, you will be charged for double occupancy.
You are also more than welcome to big on multiple rooms to increase your chances of getting upgraded. You will however only be able to bid on one room per category. But don’t worry – you will only pay for one upgrade if accepted.
Royal Caribbean will notify you via email prior to your sailing departure if your bid was accepted. If you win the upgrade, you’ll be charged the bid amount, and voilà, you’re off to a more opulent abode onboard. It’s like stepping into a hidden treasure trove of comfort and luxury. And if you don’t get your bid accepted, you will not be charged for any upgrades and you will keep the stateroom that you originally had.
It’s important to note that the program is subject to availability, so grab your chance while you can. Remember, luck favors the adventurous!
