ROYAL CARIBBEAN ACCEPTS VISA AND MASTERCARD

 ROYAL CARIBBEAN ACCEPTS VISA AND MASTERCARD
 MIAMI, June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Caribbean Cruise Line (RCCL)


announced today that effective Monday, June 22 it will accept MasterCard and VISA credit cards for the purchase of individual cruise tickets. Until now, RCCL had only accepted the American Express Card and Optima credit cards for individual cruise ticket purchases.
 "Our decision to provide some 256 million U.S. and Canadian MasterCard and VISA cardholders makes it very convenient for them to purchase their Royal Caribbean cruise. This also will enhance the attractiveness of our cruise vacation products and help travel agents close more cruise sales," said Rod McLeod, RCCL's executive vice president of sales, marketing and passenger services. "Our acceptance of VISA and MasterCard coupled with the American Express Card and the Optima Card for ticket purchases as well as onboard purchases, gives our passengers a wide range of payment options. It also helps them plan and budget their next RCCL cruise vacation."
 To speed travel agents' processing of credit card sales, Royal Caribbean will handle the credit card approval process. Credit card bookings may be made either through RCCL's reservation department or through the line's exclusive automated reservations system, CruiseMatch 2000(SM) which is available on SABRE, System One and WORLDSPAN (Datas II and PARS). An informational brochure specially prepared for travel agents ("We're Giving You A Lot Of Credit") will be mailed to travel agency locations in the U.S. and Canada the week of June 15.
 Royal Caribbean's modern fleet of nine ships offers more than 40 itineraries featuring a wide range of cruise lengths and calls at 100 destinations throughout the Caribbean, Bermuda, Bahamas, Panama Canal, Mexico, Alaska, South America, Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, the Mediterranean, Africa and the Canary Islands.
