hmmm that is not how it worked for me.
We booked Legend in January- we needed to put down the whole 500.00 and get a booking number-- then sent in the certificate and they took off 100. from the price- and gave us 100 obc-- 50 to him and 50 to me
The way it was done for you is the way it is supposed to be done. If you didn't book while onboard, you would have paid $100 for your FCC and when you booked a cruise, you have to pay the full deposit. Then the FCC gets applied to the balance due and you get the OBC.
THE FCC IS NOT USED TOWARDS A DEPOSIT. It is used towards a payment on the balance, in spite of what was posted by someone on here. By the way, if you are traveling with someone and don't want that person to get part of the OBC, fill out the certificate as a single person (traveler) and all the money will go to you. I wouldn't do that when sailing with my DH, but I would if sailing with someone else.
