The group participation fee of $40.00 is separate from your cruise ticket, and is paid directly to Out At Sea when you register with the group. The fee covers group costs and materials, such as some seriously sweet group swag sent to you in advance of the cruise, an on-board group photo, group activities/meetings, and more.
Tickets for the cruise vary based upon cabin type, location on the ship, and total occupancy. Royal Caribbean has given Out At Sea a courtesy price lock on a set of discounted rates for a limited time. To take advantage of these rates, you must book at pay at least your deposit before September 18, 2019. You may still book your room after that date; however, prices will no longer be at the price lock rates for our group.
At time of booking, please advise the agent if you are an active member of the military, police, firefighter, or EMT services, or if you’re over the age of 55.
Your cruise fare covers pretty much all of the basics for your onboard experience. The cost includes 5-night accommodations and meals for the duration. Specialty meals, drink packages, excursions, and gratuity are extra. Additional information on extra costs will be sent in the months leading up to the event.
Need more time to pay the full fare? No problem. A deposit of $200 per cabin will lock in your reservation and rate. The remaining payments can be made at your discretion until the final payment deadline of April 30, 2020.
Royal Caribbean offers a low-price guarantee on all fares until the final payment deadline of April 30, 2020. Should Royal Caribbean offer a price for your cabin type that’s lower than what you’re paying, simply give them a call. Check with your agent at time of booking for more information.
Group organizers will be working to try and monitor for sales or rate changes and advise group members accordingly.
Closer to sail date, we'll announce the official pre-cruise hotel with special discounted rates. We will also organize a pre-cruise dinner in Galveston the night before the cruise.
Travel to and from the Port of Galveston is not included in any group registration or cruise ticket prices, and is the sole responsibility of the passenger.
