This is the kind of information I love to pass along; Royal Caribbean is celebrating the family vacation this year with 3 different offers.

In short, they are:

1.     Children can tour free aboard select ships in Europe,

2.     A free upgrade opportunity for Bahamas, Bermuda or Caribbean sailings in the fall, OR

3.     Royal Incentive Reward certificates, available for purchase for an anticipated vacation or as a gift.

Here are the details, straight from the line, on what each of these offers entail:

Kids Tour Free in Europe
Only a Royal Caribbean Europe cruise vacation can deliver a memorable way to explore the old world, its history, charm and sights. Families with children 12 and under who book a 2013 Europe cruise aboard Navigator of the Seas, Brilliance of the Seas or Serenade of the Seas can enjoy free shore excursion tours for children when two adults in their stateroom purchase the same tour during May 2013.

Fall Upgrade Offer
Families looking to get away before the busy holiday season can book Royal Caribbean cruises to the Bahamas, Bermuda or the Caribbean, between May 1 through June 10, 2013, and enjoy a multitude of amenities found only on Royal Caribbean, as well as an opportunity to sail with an upgraded view on ships.  Guests may book a balcony stateroom for the same price as an ocean view stateroom, or an ocean view stateroom for the price of an interior stateroom on sailings departing September 1 through December 15, 2013.

Royal Incentive Rewards
Royal Caribbean International is offering for a limited time to consumers, Royal Incentive Reward certificates, normally a turnkey incentive solution for businesses and organizations looking to improve company performance. Available for purchase through the cruise line’s valued travel agent partners from May 1 through June 14, 2013, Royal Incentive Rewards are pre-paid cruise certificates where recipients enjoy the freedom to travel at their convenience and have the ability to upgrade or transfer their certificate, or to gift a loved one. Once the recipient is ready to book a cruise, they simply call the Royal Incentive Rewards Desk, and the cruise line will handle the rest.

That first deal has me dreaming of visiting Europe- what a great way to get some time together, do some hands-on learning, and gain an appreciation for history and different cultures.
