Folks, 

It may have been answered in the past; I went back many pages and couldn't find a discussion. I've been off the board for almost a year but back and considering two new bookings.

 

1. Can a future cruise credit be used for the cost of a deposit? (I called RCI to ask 4 FCC questions. Three were answered with great confidence; this one was an "Uhhhh."

 

2. Can a future cruise credit be used to pay the entire fare at the time of booking, thus eliminating the need for a deposit?

 

I went through a mock booking until the final step and it said I would get the final information about FCC use after making the booking. And the "pay $250 from your credit card" button was still there.

 

Help greatly appreciated. Fifteen months since my last cruise; I am ready and anxious to start again.

 

Thanks in advance.

1. Yes a FCC can be used for the deposit

 

2. The FCC can be used to pay the entire cruise fare other than port fees and taxes as well as gratuities, insurance, flights and hotels.  

 

You CANNOT use the FCC to pay the deposit on line.  You must call

I think taxes are required to be paid, no matter how much fcc is worth.  At least it was for me.

Yes... port fees/tax that's the policy for everyone. If you have an excess on the FCC after cruise is paid for it will revert to a new FCC. in that amount.

If your FCC covers the deposit then the port fees and taxes do not have to be paid until final payment

It's a glitch in the system. I booked a cruise last week using FCC,s. When I gave my name, the FCC's came up to the rep's puter. Both mine and my wife's. He did the booking with no problem, and no additional monies. The whole thing took about 15 minutes.

I made a reservation online yesterday using a FCC. How long until I get an email confirmation?

If you didn’t get one right away you will need to call to get one sent.
