Advantages to booking onboard?


Recommended Posts

Are there any advantages to making a future cruise booking whilst on board? Does the new booking automatically transfer to the TA who made the reservation for the current cruise?


Advantages -- you get a lower deposit, shipboard credit for the new cruise.

The FCC on board the ship should ask you if you want your present TA to handle the reservation and the FCC should transfer the booking over to your TA right away.

We just but down the deposits and decide on what cruise we want to do at a later date and then give our TA the confirmation codes that you get from the FCC.
