Fact is the pricing policies are exactly the opposite. Royal Caribbean does NOT allow travel agents to discount from their set prices. The only exceptions would be group pricing, which can be slightly lower than rates posted on RCI's web site.
On the other hand Carnival DOES allow agents to discount their rates, if they choose too. They cannot ADVERTISE lower rates, but if you call or email for a price quote, they can discount their commissions by whatever amount they choose.
