How does one of these work? I'm somewhat new to NCL but have a deposit on a cruise on the Breakaway in November. Can it be used on a current booking?
If you have already used on deposit, then it can only be used for a balcony or higher room. If you have not used a Cruise Next deposit previously, then yes, you should be able to use it. I just purchased one a couple months ago (I only paid $125 which is typically what the seller paid) and he transferred it to me using my Latitudes number. I then called NCL and had it applied to my existing reservation. If the booked cruise is after the expiration date, they will have to do a courtesy extension but that shouldn't be a problem. The only issue may arise if you have to cancel the cruise for some reason, then the certificate will be of no value at that point.
I would definitely not pay $180 for it though... Not when the original value to the seller was only $150 or $125. You can find them all day long on here and that "other" site too for less. Sorry OP.
