Royal Caribbean launches new hotel booking engine
Royal Caribbean International has announced the launch of a hotel booking engine that will make it easier for cruise lines to add adventure days before or after their voyages.
Royal Caribbean Hotels, powered by Priceline, will offer exclusive rates with thousands of hotels in each departure and arrival port served by the cruise line, including those in the Caribbean, Europe, Asia-Pacific and from North, South and Central America.
Travelers booking a Royal Caribbean cruise can book hotel rooms pre-screened based on the number of people in their party, departure or arrival city, and dates.
Accommodation options can be customized based on preferences, such as hotel classification, amenities, and specific locations within a city. Royal Caribbean Hotels is now available to travel advisors and customers residing in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Earlier this month, the world’s largest cruise ship, the Wonder of the Seas, set sail on its maiden voyage on March 4 from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. With room for 6,988 total passengers, the ship offers a variety of activities and events for passenger enjoyment.
