Received an email from a cruise specialist TA today. This is their NCL Thanksgiving Promo:

 

Take some time to relax when you book Norwegian’s Free At Sea promotion. Inside cabins choose 1, Oceanviews choose 2, and Balconies or higher receive up to all 5 offers. Choose from Drinks (incl. Alcohol), Specialty Dining, Internet, $50 Per Port Shore Excursion Credits, and on select sailings 3rd & 4th Guests sail free. Plus, when you book an Inside or Oceanview, receive up to $500 Shipboard Credit or book a Balcony or Higher and receive Pre-Paid Gratuities for Two & $100 Spa Credit. To sweeten the deal even more, starting Monday, you save 30% off your cruise! Only $50 per person is required at the time of booking.

 

It looks like there is some sort of promo starting Monday. Plus they are offering $100 OBC as a booking perk this week. And $50 loyalty if you are part of the program. I am not affiliated with them in any way. In fact I don't like that they charge cancellation fees but a good TA overall.

Does this mean if you have a balcony cabin, you get all 5 promotions plus prepaid gratuities and 30% discount beginning on Monday?  I'm going to assume the 20% Latitudes discount will be gone then.

From what I can decipher from my various cruises:

LATTITUDE is double points

LATVIP is the 20% discount. 

LATREW* is tier discount

INETSHORE is internet (plus $50 shore?)

SINGLE is discounted single supplement

HEXTRSX2 is the double $50 shore excursion credit

Feel free to add or correct the list...

DISC30  -  30% DISCOUNT

Yeah, but the "take all 5" isn't anything new. The Free at Sea promotion for the majority of this year has been take all offer for Balcony and above. We got all 5 when we stayed in a Mini-Suite earlier this month. As for prepaid gratuities in addition to the 30% off, if it is true that is a great offer and not one that is often promoted by NCL. I have to assume it is probably for select sailings and not every advertised cruise.

Right now I have the 20% off Latitudes plus extra point and the 30% off, I am going to assume the prepaid gratuities will replace the 20% off Latitudes which may come out to be about the same but I will definitely be checking the price on Monday to see.  Thank you!

Free grats is a travel agent booking perk. Not a corporate thing from NCL.

The free grats promo is a TA booking perk. Nothing to do with NCL if I am understanding what your are referring to.

Once you book thru NCL you can still transfer the booking to a TA and they still get commission from that booking. Not sure if it's the same amount but...there's many TAs out there that will give you OBC if you transfer an existing booking to them.

But you have to transfer with 30 days and if final payment is due when you book - you can't transfer.

If booked outside of the final payment date you have 30 days to transfer the booking. If you book within the final payment date and make a full payment then you must request to transfer the booking within 24 hours.

Wow - I didn't know you could transfer within 24 hours.  You learn something knew every day from the great people on this site.  THANKS!!!!
