I'll give you a real example. I am going on a group cruise where the cheapest cabin is listed on carnival's website was $329 per person, double occupancy rate. The total price for booking one person comes to $399.25 because of $70.95 tax (I think that's what the $70.25 is for...well, it doesn't matter for this example). Anyway, if 8 cabins at that price are booked, the 9th cabin gets a credit. The credit is the base cruise price not including port charges, taxes, fees, or whatever. You get the idea. Well, $329 is the base room price PLUS port charges. Therefore, the credit is around $170. Not as good as you thought, right?
If you book 8 cabins at a higher price, you get a higher credit for one person on the ninth cabin, I'm pretty sure. More than two people per room does not count toward anything more. Does that make sense, though?
