Default discounts for Federal Employees

My sister seen somewhere that if you work for the Federal Bureau of Prisons that Royal Caribbean gives discounts. We have a cruise planned in a couple of weeks and we didn't know about this. Does anyone have any info?

Often there are discounts for Military, Teachers, Police and Firefighter, union employees and some others.

It may be that the cruise had a union discount for Federal employees.

The best thing to do is call the agent/agency that you booked with to see "if" you can get a discounted rate.

Just don't be too optimistic. You are two weeks from sailing and have made final payment. Most lower prices and discounts this close to sailing are for "new bookings only".

However, it doesn't hurt to ask. Give them a call.

Take care,
Mike

We've been calling for 2 days and have yet to get ahold of the agency we booked through. My sister is law enforcement but I thought it was only for military until we seen on website. So hopefully we can get ahold of them today and find out!

Just talked to Travel Agency and the discounts are for specific sailing only. And of course ours doesn't apply!
