Royal Caribbean are offering free parking on their 2012 cruises from Southampton provided they are booked by 30th November 2011.
However watch the small print!! You must go online to the abp parking website and book your parking by 7th December to qualify. If you don’t you lose it!
Several of the team here at Cruise-Traveller have been caught out by a similar offer made by RCL’s sister company Celebrity who also offered free parking at Southampton. Bookings were made based on the free parking offer but at no time were parking booking deadlines mentioned by Celebrity or the travel agent. We have all lost our free parking entitlement and are now facing parking bills totalling £1200. We all feel pretty annoyed and may choose not to travel especially if another cruise line comes up with a better offer nearer the time. Our cruises are for September 2012 but we had to book parking by 7th August 2011! Crazy!
