Royal Caribbean announced last fall that they were adding new Spa Staterooms to all Radiance class cruise ships starting next May.
Royal Caribbean announced today that they will no longer be adding these staterooms to their ships in 2021-2022. The cruise line sent out the following statement to travel agents regarding this change:
“After much consideration and as our product offerings continue to evolve in today’s environment, the brand has made the decision to discontinue the introduction of Spa staterooms beginning with the 2021-2022 season.
Beginning on May 5, 2020, all bookings in a Spa stateroom will be temporarily moved from their stateroom into a guarantee. Once the accommodation process is complete, your clients will be moved back into their original stateroom with the stateroom location, dimensions, and cabin number all remaining the same.
No action is needed from you as this process is completed. We are also pleased to offer their booking will be repriced to the prevailing fare of a comparable Ocean View Balcony and will also receive a refundable $50 USD OBC per cabin that can be used anywhere onboard – including in the spa as well as pre-cruise.
We greatly appreciate all of your support during these difficult times and know we are waiting with open arms to welcome you and your clients back onboard.”
