Forget 15% off a Dyson hairdryer that’ll still cost more than your mortgage payments. Why? Because Royal Caribbean’s gigantic Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are the only savings you need to complete your life.  

Did we say, “complete your life”? Yes, and maybe that’s a bit dramatic, but we know that travel is the most meaningful and rewarding use of your hard-earned dosh.  

Travel is an investment in your future happiness. When you’re offered savings on your potential investments, it’s like double the dividends. And when it’s aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ship with everything you can need (and more), it’s like triple or quadruple the investment rewards!  

Save up to $1,000 on staterooms

Unlike those ‘one day only’ Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, Royal Caribbean is giving you until 4 December to save up to $1,000* on staterooms.

That’s for local and international sailings, so whether you’re keen to stay local or cross the Tasman, Royal Caribbean is giving you the green (black?) light to make it happen.  

With savings across all staterooms and kids sailing from $29 a day on select sailings, this is a no-brainer Black Friday deal to pounce on.

That’s not all. During this extended sale window, you only need to put down half the usual deposit amount.  

This deposit discount is how we know Royal Caribbean cares. They know you’ve got a list of the items you hope will be heavily discounted on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so they’re saying grab this deal but also grab those deals, too. It’s giving major “we get you” vibes!  

Half deposit prices also apply to select local sailings between 19 January and 13 April 2024, as well as 13 October 2024 to 3 April 2025. 

Pre-plan & save big

If you do have a list, you’ll love this: you can also save big with pre-cruise planner purchases – up to 55% off!  

Pre-cruise planning allows you to build your ultimate cruise package before you even set foot aboard one of Royal Caribbean’s innovative cruise ships.  

Select and save on speciality dining, beverage packages, shore excursions and more. It’s a brilliant addition to those stateroom savings.

Not content with simply sailing to out-of-this-world places, Royal Caribbean loves to include out-of-this-world experiences on onboard, too!

Aboard the Quantum of the Seas and Ovation of the Seas, guests can enjoy exclusive first-at-sea experiences. This includes skydiving simulator, RipCord® by iFLY®, SeaPlex activity zone, the Bionic Bar, Two70, and the FlowRider surf simulator.

With 16 decks, and ample food and beverage options, including Jamie’s Italian, Chops Grille and Wonderland, there is no shortage of things to do. Especially for the little ‘uns; kids love the industry-leading Adventure Ocean® youth programme!

Experience a Royal Caribbean Quantum Ultra class ship with an Asian twist on Spectrum of the Seas. It’s the perfect way to experience Asia at your own pace (and no time wasted at airports). Far East flavours are found onboard at restaurants like Teppanyaki and Sichuan Red, famed for its authentic spices.

The first-of-its-kind Icon of the Seas is ideal for Aussie family vacays. Boasting eight distinct neighbourhoods, more pools than ever before, 40 ways to dine, drink, and dance, plus the largest waterpark at sea, the chance of hearing a family member say “I’m bored” are zero.
