Princess Cruises Enhances Youth Passenger Experience with Two New Announcements

 

While cruises can be and often are a family-friendly vacation, it is rare that children receive the same loyalty benefits that their parents do. This makes sense to an extent, as children won’t be hitting up the Complimentary Mini Bar or Free Grapevine Wine Tastings, but what about loyalty benefits like complimentary internet packages? Though family members under 18 aren’t throwing down the cash to book a cruise, these third and fourth members are onboard just as much as their parents, but without the benefits. Princess Cruises recognized this pattern and has just announced the opening of Captain’s Circle Loyalty benefits to all ages! Now young cruisers can build their very own loyalty levels and receive perks like priority embarkation, free laundry services, and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Royal Caribbean Announces Ultimate Panoramic Suite aboard Oasis of the Seas

 

Rooms aboard cruise ships tend to follow the same general scheme; interior, ocean view, balcony and suite. Every now and then there are extended or bigger designs, but rarely does a cruise line announce something we’ve never seen before. In 100 days, Royal Caribbean will be doing just that aboard Oasis of the Seas with the new “Ultimate Panoramic Suite.” This bold new accommodation option features floor to ceiling windows from wall to wall! With 914 square feet of breathtaking 200 degree views, guests will experience sailing the seven seas like never before. In addition to the awesome sights, the suite has a posh feel with the addition of a walk-in closet and exclusive amenities.

Ultimate Panoramic Suite Aboard Oasis of the Seas

 The Ultimate Panoramic Suite will be a part of the Royal Suite Class, meaning that a ton of perks are included for its guests. Ultimate beverage packages, a Nespresso coffee maker, luxury bathroom amenities, back stage tours, exclusive complimentary dining and a personal Royal Genie are only some of the top-tier advantages to Royal Class living. It’s safe to say that staying in a brand new Ultimate Panoramic Suite will be out of this world, but you’ll have to act fast as there will only be two Ultimate Panoramic Suites onboard Oasis of the Seas, each accommodating up to four guests.

Space is extremely limited, so you’ll have to book far in advance to snag an Ultimate Panoramic Suite. Better yet, call 1-800-377-9383 or visit our website to have The Cruise Web’s expert consultants take care of it for you!
