Guaranteeing cabins for groups
If you are traveling with a group and would like to ensure that your cabins are located near each other, we’ll discuss the process of guaranteeing cabins for groups on Royal Caribbean cruises.
While Royal Caribbean offers the option of guarantee cabins, which are randomly assigned, it is recommended to book the same cabin type to maximize the chances of being assigned cabins in close proximity. We’ll address any specific concerns you may have and provide advice on how to increase the likelihood of cabin assignments close to one another.
