FCC + $600 OBC on already booked cruise - it works!

Recommended Posts

I was waiting for my TA to call on the cancelation to process the canceled cruise for July. She contacted CCL with what I wanted  and was able to get the FCC + $600 OBC on my already booked cruise in November. There were a few things that have to happen for it to process correctly.


  • ~$1500 from July Mardi Gras will transfer immediately to the November cruise
  • ~$500 for taxes and port charges will be refunded to my credit card (up to 45 days to receive)
  • ~$750 of the cruise fare held until next week so the $600 OBC can be applied correctly to the November cruise.


All in all, it was a pretty painless process on my end. My TA and whoever she worked with at CCL made it simple. Nice to have such a seamless process.

Mine has been transferred 3 times now to rebooked and canceled cruises.. the casino agents at carnival make the rebooking process alot faster and easier than the regular agents.

It was my first time with CCL. I had long waits and piecing stuff together with RCL. I was surprised at how easy it was to do. They called me again this morning to explain why the $750 was held. Because my FCC is more than I owe on the next cruise, they do it this way to process the refund amount, then submit the $750 so the OBC can be applied. 


Just happy at how smoothly it all went. Now if we can just get November cruising going with no restrictions.

I just tried having this done with a cruise that was cancelled a few days ago. The agent was working on it, then the call got disconnected. 🙄 He knew how to get it done, but wasn't finished with the process yet. So guess I'll call back later and try again.

Good to know. I was wondering about this myself in case my Sept cruise cancelled. I have 2 booked for next year. Hoping Sept. goes off since things are starting to go our way.
