Travel deals & steals
Published 19/08/2016 | 16:15
Royal Caribbean is offering free flights and transfers on select UK and European sailings... but you need to be quick.
The offer is available for bookings of one or two guests on sailings between April 19 and November 17 of 2017, and must be booked before September 5th.
As we publish, the deals (see below) include around 139 sailings on ships including Rhapsody, Independence, Navigator and Freedom of the Seas.
The deal will suit couples rather than families, and remember - cruises include not just accommodation, but all meals and most entertainment too.
