Are you thinking about taking a family cruise this summer? If so, Royal Caribbean has just sweetened the deal. If you make your cruise reservation on Tuesday, March 27 or Wednesday, March 28, you get a $200 per cabin credit to spend on drinks, shore excursions, spa treatments, wine with dinner, or anything else you can charge to your on-board account. In addition, you’ll only have to pay half of the usual deposit to hold your cruise. (Deposit amounts vary with the length and destination of the cruise.) The deposit is due when you make your reservation.

The “WOW” sale is applicable to cruises departing on or after June 1, 2012 and all cruise rates (even the lowest rates) apply.  To take advantage of this deal, visit the Royal Caribbean Web site, your favorite online travel booking site, or your travel agent beginning March 27 at 12:01 a.m.
