Recognizing that vacation time is precious and that every moment counts, Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity Cruises have developed an all-new planning tool that allows guests and/or agents “to seamlessly and intuitively plan all aspects of their cruise vacation quicker and easier than ever before.”
The cruise lines have launched a totally revamped Cruise Planner, a tool that makes it possible for all reservations, activities and entertainment to be booked well in advance of departure, ensuring no vacation time needs to be spent on planning. In addition, Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas’ Dynamic Dining reservations are also open and available for guests to book.
With the new Cruise Planner, planning and personalization is simplified with a modern, user-friendly format enabled for desktops and tablets. Cruise Planner comes complete with an extensive search and filtering feature that makes it possible for guests to easily navigate and research products and opportunities available on their specific booked itinerary. Whether a seasoned cruiser or a traveller setting sail for the first time, Cruise Planner’s menus enable access to restaurants and beverage packages with just one click, and the ability to browse hundreds of shore excursions by day, port, activity type, number of guests, and more. Cruise Planner even provides custom activity recommendations and featured product displays to spark ideas and inspire more ways to enjoy the cruise vacation.
“Planning a vacation should not be a complicated process,” said Adam Goldstein, president and COO, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “With the new Cruise Planner we are transforming the way our guests plan their experience. By taking cues from the technologies and resources that our guests use every day we have created a tool that is simple and intuitive to use and will transform our guests experience from the moment they begin planning their vacation. Once they step onboard, we want our guests to have nothing to do but simply enjoy themselves, and Cruise Planner makes that possible.”
Guests can use the platform to explore each and every activity that Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises offer both on and off the ship, and make changes to activities and reservations up until four days prior to their sail date. A streamlined order history, shopping cart with a categorized summary, and printable calendar keeps track of everything so that guests can easily and visually plan their cruise.
