VICKIS SPOTLIGHT
Hello valued Travel Partners,

We happen to be in one of my favorite times of the year at Royal Caribbean® — Travel Partner Appreciation. We've always appreciated the value that travel advisors bring not just to us, but also to the guests we service. And as our brand and industry continue to emerge from the challenges we've faced for so long, we couldn't be more grateful for your support. Thanks to you, we're able to make incredible vacation memories once again for your clients.

I'm thrilled that instead of anticipating brighter days ahead, we can finally say we're looking at them. And we're looking at them together. The month of September has been especially bright, as we introduced the Instant Booking Bonus, putting up to an additional $210 per booking in your pocket. Oh, and did I mention we just extended the Instant Booking Bonus through October 31, 2021? Yes, you read that right, we are giving you a whole other month to cash in on every eligible booking you make instantly at deposit! We announced the incredible news that Wonder of the SeasSM will launch from Fort Lauderdale next March. And we're giving away FREE cruises to anyone who joins or renews their ASTA or ACTA membership through September. Talk about a month to remember!

These are just a few examples of how Royal Caribbean and our sales team are committed to your success. Our partnership with you represents our most special relationship — now and always. And if you feel the same, I would be honored for your support of Royal Caribbean in the Travel Weekly Readers Choice Awards.

Appreciating all you do,
What am I up to
APPRECIATING ASTA
I had the pleasure of attending the recent ASTA Global Convention, where Royal Caribbean was recognized with the Supplier Medal of excellence, and our Chairman, Richard Fain, was presented with ASTA's Lifetime Achievement Award. I'm humbled to work with a man who respects the travel advisor community as much as he does — going above and beyond to keep our travel partners informed and updated on brand, industry and statistical information during all stages of the pandemic. And that's just the tip of his decades of leadership. I would be remiss if I didn't give a shout out to our Senior Vice President of Entertainment, Nick Weir, and his entire team for delivering on Royal Caribbean's reputation as the World's Best Entertainment with an encore performance of one of the most popular live bands on our ships, Phoenix!

ASTA is an organization I feel strongly that every travel advisor should be a part of. Their sole purpose is to advocate for the success of your profession. And as I mentioned earlier, Royal Caribbean will reward any travel partner who joins or renews their ASTA or ACTA membership between now and Thursday, September 30, 2021, with a complimentary cruise for two guests. Participants may choose from any two to eleven-night sailings departing in the first quarter of 2022. To claim this reward, travel partners must enter promo code CoffeeTalk2021 during ASTA checkout or Coffeechat2021 for ACTA.

THE BEST HEADS WEST
I'm so excited for Navigator of the Seas® homeporting in Los Angeles in just a few weeks time. Many of you know that I'm formerly a California girl myself. And I know how many travel advisors have long hoped for a Royal Caribbean ship in the area. Recently Amplified with amazing onboard thrills and venues, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better vacation, with beautiful destinations on the itinerary like Ensenada, Puerto Vallarta and Catalina Island. Check out the Booking Bonus below to see how these sailings can benefit you!

The Place to Be
THE BEST FOR LAST FRONTIER
It's the prime booking window for Alaska 2022, where we'll have more inventory than ever before with 4 ground-breaking ships — including the two largest in the region, Quantum of the Seas®, and Ovation of the Seas®, along with Radiance of the Seas® and Serenade of the Seas®. No matter which itinerary your clients choose, they're in for a once-in-a-lifetime vacation that even the youngest cruisers will love. My personal favorite Alaska activities are whale watching in Alaska's Inside Passage and snapping incredible photos of the glaciers in Endicott Arm and Tracy Arm Fjord!
