The two hour $150 ‘All Access Tour’ will consist of a guided tour through the ships galley, engine room control room, navigational bridge, backstage of the show theater and other areas that are restricted and closed off to passengers.
Princess Cruises launched their “Ultimate Ship Tour” in 2008 and Carnival Cruise Line’s launched ”Behind the Fun” in 2009. Royal Caribbean was hesitant because of “insurance reasons,” but I guess a mixture of a bad economy and getting creative to make a dollar took precedence.
These tours will take place starting this month and be offered at least once per cruise on sailings under seven nights, two tours will take place on sailings greater than seven nights.
Would you pay $150 for a behind-the-scenes tour of a cruise ship?
