Royal Caribbean is bringing back their priority access program, The Key. They will begin to roll out the program to their fleet of cruise ships over the next few months.
The latest ship to bring back The Key is also the world’s largest, Symphony of the Seas. Royal Caribbean has announced that the program will be rolled out to their fleet over the next few months.
The Key, which is available for pre-purchase, offers passengers a number of exclusive perks including early boarding, an exclusive welcome lunch featuring steak from Chop’s steakhouse, early access to select shows, internet access for one device per passenger, priority access to onboard attractions, and priority disembarkation services.
Although the program has been popular with cruisers, it has not been seen since the restart of service earlier this summer.
Cruisers aboard the Symphony of the Seas have shared a welcome email that offered The Key as an add-on, although with some modifications. The changes include a swap of the embarkation luncheon for a room service voucher and 25% off all onboard dining purchases.
The price varies by sailing but typically starts at $25.99 per day, per person, and Royal Caribbean only sells a select number of them for each cruise. Discounts can be found that reduce the cost but it is important to note that all guests over the age of 6 in the same cabin must purchase The Key.
