Royal Caribbean Makes Website Error

Royal Caribbean guests were thrown for a loop this past weekend when a new package called “Premier Pass” appeared on its website, then was quickly taken down.

The package was listed for $89 for the entire length of the cruise, and included things such as a bottle of champagne, Royal’s behind the scenes Inside Access tour, an officer’s lunch, unlimited internet access, one bag of laundry service, and more.

The offer was too good to be true, though, as Royal retracted the offer on Sunday, saying “the Premier Pass was listed in error and is not a Royal Caribbean product. It’s inclusive to our sister brand Celebrity.”

Refunds will automatically be processed to anyone who purchased the package.

Celebrity Cruises did previously offer the Premier Pass on select sailings prior to the shutdown.
