Koningsdam Nov 3 ,2020 San Diego to Hawaii 18 nights

Recommended Posts

Wow we got the best deal  on this cruise . We booked through a TA that us giving us  $525 OBC   & ppd gratuities  .We also get $75 from HAL for our FCC  & next year we will get the $250 Share holder on board credit  .Thus $850 total in OBCs & the $522 in ppd gratuities  .By the time we deducted these perks from the  booking cost ,we were down to $96 .04  per day  per person cruise cost fro a VH cat balcony  & the best part no flying :classic_biggrin:👍

 

 That $850 in OBCs will give us opportunities to go to all the speciality restaurants  plus some  tours .We always wanted to try Tamarind & Pinnacle Steaks  .We also will go to Canaletto

If you’ve sailed HAL within last 60 days did you get the welcome back credit email too?

 No because we did the 10 night southern Caribbean March 17 ,2019 on koningsdam  .  Getting those ppd gratuities & all the OBC is enough  for us  for this cruise  N ow we know  that really good sales are available especially  the 4th of July sales:classic_biggrin:

 

 If we had sailed HAL like we did Celebrity we be at 5 star mariner vs our 3 star level . We prefer not to fly & HAL does service the west coast regularly

I got it.  Was quite surprised because I’ve only received it one other time.

That is a good deal . However ,in our case HAL offered the ppd gratuities for one week  & our TA was also running a special for all the cruise lines because of the 4th of July with lots of OBC perks  .These deals don't seem to come that often ;but ,they are out there if a person shops the different TAs  web sites

 

 We did know of the double OBC by booking with in 60 days  .
