Whoops! Royal Caribbean Offers $18 Drink Package on Website
If you’re looking for the deal of the century front Royal Caribbean, you likely missed it! For a few short hours a minor mishap on their website allowed guests to order drink package for just $18 per day.
Originally, Royal Caribbean notified guests that they would not be honoring the highly discounted price— however after some negative publicity and postings on Twitter, the company reversed course.
The drink package is normally around $55 per day per guest, so when it posted at $18 it was quickly ordered by many due to the deep discount.
An email was sent to affected guests from the Director of Guest Services, which read;
Well, this round’s on us.
On Monday, July 1st, 2019, from 4:00 PM to 1:30 AM EST, we posted incorrect pricing of $18 USD per person, per day, for Deluxe Beverage packages. Given that we typically price these packages at about $55 USD per person, per day, it was the (messed up) deal of the century.
This was a BIG mistake! It might have been bad code, a random computer glitch – or maybe we just need to reinstate our intern typing test.
Any which way, it was our error, and we’ll own it. Enjoy your deep, deep discount – while we go drown our sorrows.
Happy 4th of July!
