  1. Thanks Wendy. I saw this second reply from you after I replied to your first one so you've answered my questions already. We're looking at a Category E deck 4 cabin and they're not offering any extra off the cruise price, although when they quoted a category F price their price was 5% lower than PGs price. I called back and he said he'll ask a Manager tomorrow if they can do better with the cruise price too, as he said the discounts vary depending on cabin grade.
  2. Thanks everyone for your replies. Wendy and David, Hi, we're planning to book the August 29 2020 Marquesas 14 night cruise so could use OBC towards excursions Did you book through an Australian TA? The couple of quotes I've had from TAs here are in US Dollars and are for the same price as the PG website. This morning I've contacted a US based TA that I've used a few years ago and they can give me a $500 OBC from them as well as the $200 spa credit from PG, and I haven't found Australian TAs offering extra OBCs like US based TAs usually offer.
  3. We visited Papeete, Moorea and Bora Bora while on a cruise from Hawaii to Sydney on the Celebrity Solstice in October 2013 and have wanted to go back to French Polynesia ever since. We've been reading a lot of the posts here and have decided to book a Paul Gauguin cruise for August 2020. How often do PG have promotional offers when booking, like OBC? They currently have a Valentines Day offer that expires on February 16 that gives a $200 spa credit, box of chocolates and a bottle of sparkling wine but we would prefer an On Board Credit that we could use towards the cost of excursions. From past experience, has anyone noticed if they usually introduce a new offer soon after the current one expires? We'll wait until next week to book in case they do have a different offer. We've only recently been considering a Paul Gauguin cruise so don't know what promotional offers they usually have at different times of the year. I've seen mention in some old posts of people having OBC offers added to current bookings. Do they usually do that most of the time when you request it? If the price of a cruise increases can you still get OBC offers added to an existing booking without having to pay the higher price? Thanks for any advice you can offer.
