Royal Caribbean invites guests to bid for stateroom upgrades
Royal Caribbean International has rolled out ‘RoyalUp’ in Asia Pacific, its new bid-based stateroom upgrade programme for guests to score deal-worthy upgrades to a range of attractive options including Balcony Staterooms and the most expansive suites at sea.
Stateroom upgrade at just a few clicks
Guests booked on eligible sailings will be notified via email on the stateroom upgrade options available 45 days prior to departure and invited to make an offer online.
Accepted offers will be automatically charged, and the guests will be upgraded to their desired staterooms, marking the perfect start of their Royal Caribbean holiday. In the case of unsuccessful bids, the guests will keep their original staterooms without incurring any charges.
Attractive benefits of upgrading
The bid offers are based on double occupancy, so only the first and second guests will be charged, even for triple and quadruple sharing staterooms.
The programme is currently available for most Royal Caribbean International ships, for instance Voyager of the Seas in Singapore, Ovation of the Seas in Alaska and Oasis of the Seas in the Mediterranean. Guests will have a chance to bid for upgrading to a variety of higher category staterooms including the luxurious two-storey Loft Suites on available sailings of the Oasis and Quantum Class ships.
Angie Stephen, Managing Director, Asia Pacific of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. said, “We are seeing very strong response for ‘RoyalUp’ from our other markets because of the great value it brings to our guests, and we believe that many guests in our region will likewise take advantage of this programme to pamper themselves even more on our cruises, starting from their accommodation.”
The ‘RoyalUp’ programme also allows travel partners to be in communication with their guests at all times to assist them with enquiries and recommend suitable stateroom upgrades according to their preferences. Guests can be assured that all the upgrade arrangements will be taken care by Royal Caribbean.
