For just over nine glorious hours this week, Royal Caribbean passengers were able to purchase all-you-can-drink packages for their upcoming cruises for the bargain price of just $18 a day – thanks to a costly mistake on the cruise line’s part.
The mix-up allowed passengers to save around $40 per day!
For their part, Royal Caribbean was quick to own up to the mistake and revealed they will honor the drink packages for however long the guest purchased it.
In a letter sent to guests, Royal Caribbean wrote, “Well, this round’s on us. On Monday, July 1st, 2019, from 4:00 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. 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, it was the (messed up) deal of the century.”
“This was a BIG mistake!” the cruise line shared. “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,” Royal Caribbean informed the cruisers lucky enough to snag the bargain price. “Enjoy your deep, deep discount — while we go drown our sorrows. Happy 4th of July!”
