Royal Caribbean and Universal Orlando have expanded a partnership to offer theme parks and cruises. Beginning in November, they will package a theme park visit with a cruise out of Tampa. The new option builds on a two-year existing arrangement that has included a Royal Caribbean cruise out of Port Canaveral, Fla.

I didn't click far enough to look at prices. But I do LOVE going on cruises. In fact my wife and I are going down there for Halloween this year and then on a cruise.

Anyone see any going rates on these packages?

RC's food quality has deteriorated substantially in the last few years.

I just finished a Celebrity (same company) cruise where the food was fantastic.

As with most things tourism related, if you pick the "off-times" to go on a carib cruise you can score massive discounts. If you go during Peak Summer, Christmas, Easter you'll pay dearly.

Oh Em Gee, I did a celebrity cruise last year and the food was amazing. I gained somewhere around 8 lbs. I have never tried Royal Caribbean, but that new Oasis of the Seas is tempting me.

I went on Royal Caribbean about 2 years ago - and must have been on the Cooking with 2 Fat ladies/Julia Child reunion trip - food was excellent. I've also been on Norwegian, Princess, Celebrity, and Carnival - Agreed Celebrity was right up there as well.
