I figure let me start a new thread to make searching for it easier in case anyone finds it handy.

I put this together to show Platinum plus pricing using only (1) $50.00 shore credit so anyone using the extra $50 for the distinctive voyage credit should add the extra $50.00 into their amount.

****This is per person pricing*******

$29.00 = $24.65 = $0.00
$39.00 = $33.15 = $0.00
$49.00 = $41.65 = $0.00
$59.00 = $50.15 = $0.15
$69.00 = $58.65 = $8.65
$79.00 = $67.15 = $17.15
$89.00 = $75.65 = $25.65
$99.00 = $84.15 = $34.15
$109.00 = $92.65 = $42.65
$119.00 = $101.15 = $51.15
$129.00 = $109.65 = $59.65
$139.00 = $118.15 = $68.15
$149.00 = $126.65 = $76.65
$159.00 = $135.15 = $85.15
$169.00 = $143.65 = $93.65
$179.00 = $152.15 = $102.15
$189.00 = $160.65 = $110.65
$199.00 = $169.15 = $119.15
$209.00 = $177.65 = $127.65
$219.00 = $186.15 = $136.15
$229.00 = $195.65 = $145.65
$239.00 = $203.15 = $153.15
$249.00 = $211.65 = $161.65
$259.00 = $220.15 = $170.15
$269.00 = $228.65 = $178.65
$279.00 = $237.15 = $187.15
$289.00 = $245.65 = $195.65
$299.00 = $254.15 = $204.15

Thanks so much! Talked to my PCC who verified that both the ShoreEx promos would be on one account for a total of $ 100 per port. Has anyone tried to purchase both excursions on the one account? We both are platinum plus but have separate accounts for the cruise and don’t plan to change that. Looks like taking any excursion that costs less than $100 after PP discount would not be a good plan. Thanks for the chart!

Your welcome!
Yes when using the extra credit (as a single) it pays to do any excursion starting at $119 retail. With 2 people it pays to start at the $59 retail price.

No they will not allow one person to buy the excursion on the ship. The only way around that rule is to have the person that will receive the credit prepay online before sailing and have the 2nd person pay them the difference. They will not apply the 15% when you prepay but the discount will be applied onboard (both passengers stop at excursion desk) and that will be issued as refundable OBC on the individual account. So for example if the shore excursion costs 80 per person (without latitude discount) have the person pay you 30 (since you will get 50 applied onboard) and then have the excursion desk refund the 15% to each account. I hope that makes sense.

It does! I think what might work for us is to settle up after the cruise and try to find $100 plus excursions as taking a lesser one will only be reimbursed at that amount not the full $100 which creates a math problem lol. Do you know if the put the credit on immediately after the excursion is taken or in a lump sum at the end. I hope it is daily so it will be easier to keep track. Thanks for bringing up this issue which I thought would be a real bonus; I guess those that have one account won’t have this issue.

The credit will be applied the day after ALL the excursions have been completed so if your port days are Tuesday -Wednesday - Thursday & Friday all 4 days will be credited on Saturday.

Print out a copy of my list and take it with you since you both are P+ and you have the breakdown when planning your excursions

If you book directly with NCL when purchasing the shore excursion online the latitude discount is automatically applied. I just booked an excursion for 2 yesterday and that’s what happened.

We have six ports on an 11 day cruise so a $600 ShoeEx credit sounds great until the math part comes in and if credit won’t come until day 10. So if we call ShoreEx to book the excursions will show up as full price after PP discount on both of our accounts then on Day 10 if excursions taken total at least $100 each day the $600 credit should appear on my account. If an excursion is less than $100 the credit will be for that amount or if an excursion is not taken in any port it’s zero...will be explaining this to my friend after I figure it out...we both assumed that the two $50 dollar promos could be split...duh couldn’t be that easy lol!

According to Terms & Conditions the $50 Shorex discount is only given if the excursions are booked over phone or onboard.
After the Excursion the $50 is deducted from the billed amount charged for the Excursion.

You know what, I may have spoken out of turn, let me dig up my last sailings folio to confirm that. If I can fine it I will let you know but to be on the safe side let me say it is non refundable

We received the $50 off the day after each port excursion. The only time we received it at the end wŕs in Bermuda since that is considered one port even though we were there three days.
We booked at the special number so didn't have to prepay. We went to the excursion desk and they put our platinum discount on our account. If you book online you have to prepay and the discount comes off then.

If you booked the cruise before 3rd (?) Feb 2017 then you had to claim any Platinum or Platinum Plus discount on board as that is when it was introduced. If you booked the cruise after that date any discount was built in when you paid. We had to make the claim on the Jewel from Honolulu to Sydney and it was Refundable. It was simple we just talked to the shorex staff and it was done. It made a very large statement at the end!!!

If you are comped a $50 a port perk then you either have to book (reserve) using the 1800 number or book on board. If you use the 1800 number you do not pay till it appears on your folio (no prepayment). The "full" price (without or with Platinum discount) is debited to your folio for all shorex you have reserved or booked on board on boarding. Then the perk will be credited to your folio after the shorex has been completed.

All credits will appear on your folio and so on your last night statement and that would include any credit for a shorex done on debarkation day.
