Hello All: Recently I rebooked a cruise with Norwegian. I originally had 4 Cruise Next Certificates with a $250 Value for Each from my last cruise. When i rebooked I used 2 Credits. 250 Each. Some how the other 2 cruise next certificates Disappeared from the website. Has anyone had any experience with this?? Any input will be appreciated.

how many cruise next certificates can you use per room when booking?

 

One per cabin, although they sometimes have a promotion where you can use two if you book a balcony or higher at least 6 months out.

Normally -1- per cabin - but from time to time NCL allows 2 on certain promo destinations.

If in a Suite or Haven class cabin 2 maybe used.

In any event check with NCL for the answer or your TA who may have to ask NCL.

 

For the OP - go to the NCL site and login check your MY ACCOUNT for the certificate numbers

Again check with NCL for the history of the certificates if things are not in order.

Don't wait on this NCL may have misapplied the cruise credits - you wait you lose if not corrected !

How do you get these?

 

You buy them onboard, they usually have a BOGO so they are a great deal.

How do you get these?

 

The Cruise Next office/desk on the ship is usually located near the Shore Excursions desk.

Check with the NCL person within or ask the SX people ?

There will be a form to fill out to purchase the certificates usually provided in your paperwork

left in your stateroom; at the SX desk or perhaps at one of the Latitudes cocktail parties.

 

You can purchase 1 for $250 getting $100 OBC back to use on the cruise you are now on.

Also a better deal you can buy 2 for $500 getting $250 OBC 4 for $1000 getting $500 OBC.

 

And as noted only 1 can be used per cabin per cruise - although sometimes 2 can be used

with certain other seasonal promos. Suites and Havens maybe allowed 2 - check with NCL

for details. Certificates can be used as a down payment or to place a hold on future cabin

reservations - additional monies maybe required to complete the initial reservation.

 

Certificates must be used WITHIN 4 years otherwise poof void money lost like a bad casino bet.

The certificates maybe transferred bartered sold on ebay - best between Latitudes members.

 

Get all the facts - talk with the NCL rep on board - a good deal if you like and have loyalty for NCL !

You can also buy (or sell) them on eBay, last I checked, but obviously not at the same rate as onboard.

It gets used against the purchase.

 

So, what is really happening is you get a £250 voucher for $150 or two vouchers for $250

 

They just advertise it as OBC, I assume to encourage people to spend it elsewhere onboard.

Great news, thanks!

So if you pay 500, you get 3 vouchers of 250 each, translating into a 33% discount, right?

Do you have to use the free voucher of 250 onboard the current ship, or can you book 3 more cruises, using 1 voucher for each future cruise cabin?

Also can 1 voucher be used per person or per cabin?

Which other Cruise lines have similar offers? Thanks again

Can the 250 voucher be used while booking through an online travel agent or is it only valid for direct booking on the Norwegian website?

In booking thru your TA - the TA calls NCL - looking up your account and selecting one or more of the

certificates for your cruise booking.

 

At what price are they sold on eBay?

 

Whatever is negotiable between the buyer and seller (probably something near 60-80% of face value).

For 3 certificates, you pay $750 & basically get a refund of $375, a 50% discount. Both transactions are done through your OBC. Basically a net of $375 is being charged to your OBC. For 4, you pay a net of $500, for 2 the net is $250, for 1 you pay $250 with a refund of $100, a net of $150. You won't have any OBC left over for this transaction.

 

 

They are used per cabin, not per person & are used as the deposit. With certain promos, you can use 2 per cabin.

Buy 1 certificate for $250 - get $100 OBC*** and $250 off your next cruise

Buy 2 certificates for $500 - get $250 OBC*** and $250 off each of your next two cruises

Buy 3 certificates for $750 - check with NCL for OBC*** and program allowances !

Buy 4 certificates for $1000 - get $500 OBC*** and $250 off each of your next four cruises

 

*** OBC is the non-refundable type - can not be cashed out - use it up - zero it out - before disembarking

 

Normally only 1 certificate per cabin per cruise although from time to time NCL allows

2 to be used in certain promo markets.

With Suites and Havens class staterooms 2 certificates maybe used check with NCL details

 

Don't know about other cruise lines offerings - readers any clues help ?

Get 4 certificates of 250 and have only 500 charged to your onboard account! Why isn't this advertised as a promo to potential customers?

My family usually books two rooms, can I use a certificate for each of the two rooms for the same cruise?

You can use 1 per cabin.

 

 

You can only buy these onboard or as others have stated sometimes people sell them on ebay or through other methods.

Correct me if I am wrong, but--

In Celebrity, you have to choose a SPECIFIC future cruise at their HIGH RACK RATE, not the normally huge discounted rate offered by OTAs. You can switch to another Celebrity cruise, again at the high rack rate.

So, its not worth it, cos you can never get the OTA discounted rate.

I don't know about Celebrity. For NCL, you can buy these certificates and you have 4 years to use them. You do not need to book your next cruise onboard. You can go home and find a cheap NCL cruise and use it for that at whatever rate you find and from whatever source (NCL or a TA or a website).
