Wave Season, Round Two: The Pale Blue Of It

One solid month into the 2018 cruise buying ‘wave season’, that time of the year when many travelers choose and buy a cruise, and we’re off to a solid start.  Still, following historic pricing trends, it’s time for Wave Season, Round Two.  Leading off the charge in what history tells us is also a solid month of cruise sales, with a traditional ‘better deals than ever’ focus that is a bit blurry.

We start with Royal Caribbean.

The First Wow Sale Of 2018.

Royal Caribbean is back with what has traditionally been their absolute most popular promotion in title, a “Wow Sale”.

For a very limited time, travelers can pick up

  • Reportedly good pricing. (30% off….what?)
  • Bona fide good onboard credit. (Up to $200 for suites)
  • No Reduced deposits. Nope.  That was last year.

Here is the 2018 deal:

Booking Window: – February 7 – February 11, 2018
Sailing Window: All sailings departing on or after March 7, 2018. Offer excludes China departures.
Offer details: Up to $200 to spend at sea

Sailing Length Inside/Ocean View Balcony Deluxe
5N and less $50 $75 $100
6N and more $75 $125 $200

Ok so maybe this is not a tsunami of value but wave season it is nonetheless.
Maybe, this one is more of a paler blue than Royal on the color spectrum.
If the above does not produce, they might sweeten the deal.  We’ve seen it before, we’ll see it again. Stay tuned.
