Prices for Royal Caribbean cruises vary greatly and depend on a wide variety of factors. Destination, ship size, ports of call, type of accommodations and time of year will determine how much or how less you will spend on your Royal Caribbean cruise. Typically, deluxe suites and rooms with balconies or ocean views cost more, with interior rooms costing considerably less.

The best deals are typically offered in January, September-December and late spring. Prices may range anywhere from $400 up to $5,400. The higher prices are usually for deluxe accommodations aboard any of the ships in the Radiance Family. If your interests lean more towards excursions rather than ship activities, it’s best to select and purchase your excursions online far in advance as tours tend to fill quickly. In general, you have 10 days prior to departure to purchase excursions online; otherwise you’ll have to purchase them on the ship or with a tour director, if available.

    I took my 1st and probably my last cruise with RC, Grandeur of the Seas, 5-14- Sep 2019. Due to pending storm Dorian, Amtrac cancelled all trains which included the one we (me and my travelmate Anita Adcock) had booked from Fay, NC to Baltimore, MD. After many calls we both consistently were advised to be at the dock NLT 5:00 or they would sail without us. I95 road traffic was to be terrible because of the mandatory evacuations in areas from Jacksonville, FL through Charleston, SC and even flights were cancelled, athough we were able to get a 6:05am flight on Sept 5 which cost us 3 times the amount we would have paid for the train. All flights later were cancelled. However, RC kept telling us repeatedly that all was going according to plan. When we finally arrived at the dock and checked in, we ended up being held there on the ship from 5:00 pm on 9/5 through mid-morning of 9/7 before we ever set sail. During this period of time we could only view the I95 traffic and the not so-lovely docks of Baltimore. To make matters worse, 2 of our excursions (Boston & St. John) that were our priority to visit were cancelled. Our money was refunded but it all started our cruise off on the wrong foot, and other excursions ended up being shortened, to the point that we could not really enjoy them: Halifax Nova Scotia, the visit to the gravesites of the Titanic victims and Peggy’s Cove was to be 31/2 hrs but we had to run to the graves and at the Cove we had less than 30 minutes. This whole ordeal was NOT what we signed up for and not acceptable under any circumstances. We even heard that the delays and cancellations were due not because of the pending storm (which never happened) but because of mechanical problems (same ship that on the last cruise, was turned back to port because of same problems and ended up being cancelled). In spite of the awful beginning, the staff on board, as well as the meals, lodging and entertainment were excellent. However, we both feel that we should be somehow compensated for what we had to suffer on the front end of the trip. I called earlier and spoke with Earnest who said all he could offer would be a bottle of wine or RC towel on our next cruise for all the issues we had encountered, to include the extra last-minute cost for the airline ticket vs train ticket! That was like a slap in the face for all the inconvenience and costs we both endured just to get to the ship, in addition to the delays and cancellations of the excursions, and in addition, I feel that in some instances, we were even lied to and not treated right by the folks we dealt with on the telephone each time we called to verify if the cruise had been cancelled. All in all, at this point I cannot recommend RC to anyone – certainly if all I can be offered in compensation is a bottle of wine or a towel! My Booking # was 713787 and Room was 7023. Thank you for hearing my frustrations regarding this matter.

    My wife and I have cruised over 50 times, at least 10 with RCI. Even with our limited computer skills we usually get our set sail pas or equivalent in about 30-45 minutes. Yesterday it took over 5 hours for our upcoming 11-24 cruise on the Harmony. Whatever you have done to your system is not satisfactory to those of us who are in our 80’s and are not computer gurus.

    Do the rooms on the Navagaitor have blow dryers for your hair

  4. I’m having trouble getting into Royalcaribbean.com site. I would like to check out the offers,ships, and ports. I never had trouble before!

    A map of the lay out of the ship would have been helpful. Having a layout of the ship on each floor helped, but did not give directions to sites on other decks. Can’t believe this wasn’t provided with each cabin. I never knew if I was supposed to go aft or forward.
    Walked over 16 miles in first 3 days. Lost my way a lot.
    Wait time for elevators was always long.
    While the show were well staged and the talent was exceptional, as were the special effects, it was hard to hear the lyrics as the music was too loud. The dancing was too avant- guard. Disappointed in all 3 shows. Definitely geared to younger crowd. Felt like something out of Hunger Games.
    Lack of movies or other shows on TV. Dougie Hauser, really? Old Marilyn Monroe movie, and Hill Street Blues….can’t you provide something more recent?
    Lack of weather forecast for destination.

    I need someone to contact me to discuss the overcharges on a cruise I have just been on. For some reason I have been charged twice for everything. I am over 1300 dollars out. Please contact me urgently.

    We left to go on a cruise for 5 days in Feb 2015 on Brillance of the sea. When we got there after 2 days of traveling we were told our cruise was delayed bc of fog. We all understood that. So after 2 days they decide the cruise was cancelled. The people on the ship were treated great. Free drinks….free anything! Now the ones on ground got refunded on this cruise but only a 25% refund on the room, not for each of us in the room for a new cruise.. Did not cover the 2 nights and food while waiting on the cruise not even to mention we had to spend money to entertain ourselves. So my thought is there are a lot of cruise lines out there choose another one. And take out the $50 travel insurance it is worth it.
