If you belong to the Crown and Anchor Society, Royal Caribbean's past passenger program (you only need to have sailed one cruise), log in to the AAA/CAA trade show, visit the Exhibit Hall and click Talk to a Live Agent to book. Another option: Call your travel agent or visit in person. Have your C&A number handy when you make your reservation.
One note: You cannot book via Royal Caribbean reservations; this is the same rule that applied to Diamond and Diamond Plus booking, which opened on August 21.
Everyone else can book starting September 3.
