Looks more like a scam to me. I bet if you shop around, you can find the same cruise at the same price. Are there specific dates that its good for?? That may also be the catch. I'd check on-line and enquire as to what some other agency will charge for the thing, and also the same time frame.
red flag-"published rate" the published rates in the brochures are always much higher than anything you can find any place else.
"You can use the 2for1 sale on MOST" that should tell you something right there.
Actually, its not a scam. Royal does have this posted on their website under specials & its being shown on alot of the internet sites they advertise on, especially Yahoo & Cnn. I saw this advertisement yesterday.
It's a 2 for 1 special, however, only on certain ships & certain dates. Probably because they aren't selling.
On most of these 2 for 1 deals you have to pay the published rate, which is usually more than two times higher, and most times you have to book a certain cabin category. I had one once for Carnival and I would have had to pay almost three times which was the brochure price, and would have to book at least a 6A cabin category. Needless to say that "deal" went to the trash.

Previous poster said "Royal" had this scam "posted on their website" - I spend a lot of time over at the Royal Caribbean website and darned if I can find a two for one offering associated with the outfit that contacted the OP.
I think LisaK has it right...anyone could offer a 2 for 1 cruise off the "published rates" from the RCI brochures...
I got an email from RCI with this same offer after I had booked the Explorer for August. I had my travel agent check it out. Turns out we already had a better deal because they use the brochure prices. Gimmick, but not scam.
