Bid for cruise cabin upgrades

Australian cruisers can now bid on upgrading their stateroom to one of the super-fancy suites onboard Royal Caribbean vessels.

The RoyalUp by Royal Caribbean program offers guests on eligible local and international sailings the chance to upgrade Oceanview and Balcony staterooms to some of the most expensive suites at sea.

If you’re eligible, an email from Royal Caribbean will be sent to you, advising you of the available stateroom upgrade options and inviting you to submit an offer. If your offer is accepted, you will be automatically charged and upgraded.

The program follows the successful roll out of Celebrity Cruises’ MoveUp program in Australia and New Zealand in 2018.

Terms and conditions apply. For more information, head to
