Royal Caribbean Also Offers Military Discount Rates
Royal Caribbean International has a new special offer of up to $200 off per stateroom for active and retired military personnel.

The special savings for members of the U.S. military can be extended up to two additional staterooms for family and friends to share in a memorable reunion and vacation.
The special savings can be applied to the full range of Royal Caribbean International itineraries (except for Oasis of the Seas), from three and four-night cruises out of Florida to seven-night and longer cruises departing from ports around the world.
