My cruise Consultant ROCKS!

Recommended Posts

We booked a few months ago. I emailed her today and asked her if it was possible to get in on the current on board credit sale. She sent me an email with a revised reservation. $600 OBC!:D

My PCC just took care of me in a similarly great way. :D I'm loving that this sale doesn't seem to be limited to new bookings!

It isn't limited to new bookings, but the $600 OBC is for latitude members, others in suites should get $500. If you are not latitude and got $600 good for you.

Hmmm, I thought the most was $500 for a suite using NCL's promo code. Maybe she gave you an extra $100 onboard credit herself. Ooops, just saw Nita's post. Thanks for the info.! We'll have 5 in a suite and 3 of the 4 adults are Latitude members & so is our DGD. Is it $50 for each Latitudes member or just for the first two?

I notice it's for next year's Panama Canal Repo. Congratulations, it was great this year, and I'm sure it will be next year, too.

 

Are you on the deck 9 or 8?

 

Hope the weather isn't as hot as it was for us this year. I notice you're going to Huatulco. That was a late addition for us (taking the place of San Francisco and Los Angeles), but was a beautiful place.

 

The transit through the canal was memorable. It helped that we had friends with suites on all four sides of the ship, so we had a progressive party, starting with the left side in the morning, going to our place on the aft, relaxing in an AB during the day, and going to an AC on the bow for Gatun Locks and back to our cabin (AD) for departing the final lock.

Nita, were latitude members in a suite so that explains the $600. I'm pleased.

I am Latitude and still "thought good for me", LOL. I thought the OBC was $300 for suites, not $600 so I was thrilled. :D

 

Out of curiousity, can you tell me what the OBC is for a mini-suite for non-Latitudes? (I have some friends I want to give the straight scoop to.)

Do you have a PCC? I call my TA and she didn't seem to want to bother calling NCL. I have a mini-suite on the Gem April 11. Maybe I need a new TA.

I just love these boards -- you always get great info:

 

I have a question about the OBC:, I called my TA and asked, I was told she would have to rebook and it would only be $100 pp for a total of $200. but the fuel surcharge has gone up and that will cost an additional $54.00 so it probably isn't worth it. I told her that is still $146. OBC so go for it. THen I found out I get a union discount from reading on the boards and got that discount. But after the above posting I am not sure -- we are booked in a mini suite AF for Feb 2010. We booked with deposit in June 2008.

 

Did I get the right OBC.

 

Oh yeah, there are 4 of us in the mini-suite, 2 are Latitudes Members and 2 are not, 2 are Union Members and 2 are not.

 

Thanks

Well for your TA to indicate is wasn't worth it, is lazy on her part in my opinion, that being said, it looked like you got about the right credit. If you got your union discount and an OBC good for you.

There is a little misinformation given on this topic.

 

The onboard credit is as follows:

 

$50.00 for an inside

$100.00 for an oceanview

$150.00 for a balcony

$200.00 for a mini-suite

$300.00 for a suite

$500.00 for a courtyard villa or garden villa

 

The extra $100.00 for latitudes is a bonus for IS-OV-BL-MS but suites get $300.00 for the latitudes.

 

I hope this clear everything up.

 

I am a TA and have been booking alot of these this last two weeks plus went back to all of my guests and got it for them as well.

I actually booked through CAS. I called them on Friday to see what they could do. I didn;t have to rebook at all. I think it's hit or miss sometimes.

 

 

Cruise Freak did exactly what a good TA should do. Good job CF:)

I wish I could get an OBC for my Feb Sky cruise. But it doesn't look like it will happen. The catagory of cabin I am in hasn't dropped in price at all...

 

Oh well...there are a few months left before I sail. So anything could happen

Is the Latitudes bonus only for 2009 bookings? Just wondering because we only got 200 and we are booked for January 2010.

Sorry but the short sailings on the sky are not included in the sale.

 

2010 sailings also haven't been getting the extra latitude onboard credit

Did CAS give you the onboard credit as I have talked to them before and they said they can't use promotions that have an onboard credit.

Hi: After reading all the previous posts I decided to call NCL. Our cruise is Feb 6/09 on Jewel in AE suite. Person that answered offered me a $600.00 obc(2 cruisers) because we were latitude members and I would have to pay $60.00 more on the total cruise. Dah $600 for $60 I took it and now have an email stating that.

Thanks NCL

If it was a 2009 sailing you should have received $600.00 but you got $300.00 as everyone booking 2010 are getting the sale onboard credit.

 

It is great though.

I booked with CAS for 10/09 months ago...

called last week...and got the $50 OBC .......but they told me I could not have the Lattitudes...as they had already "figured that in" when I booked...but it was not an OBC..just part of their rate % reduction..

 

WHich OBC are you referring to...the extra Lattitudes?? and is it just the DMPP6 code ? If so...I may call again...:confused:

 

Darn they make it so hard...:mad:

I do not know the codes they used but it was actually 2 differnent ones so whatever they were looking at I don't think one (or both?) had anything to do with the current promo but I would call and say you are insterested to see what they have to offer since NCL has a promo offering OBC and you wanted to make sure you are getting everything available to you. I only booked mine about a month ago so maybe since it was failrly new I was able to get "something" Doesn't hurt to try. I'm telling you, I think it varies on who you get and the mood you both are in. Try again. Good luck.:)

Nita,

 

I'm sort of confused. We had booked last month through Casino's At Sea for Bermuda in June, 2009. We booked an AB suite. When this sale started, I called CAS and they gave me a $300 OBC. Are you saying that we should/could get more because we are latitudes members?

 

Thanks,

CG

So, the $300 for lattitudes suites...is that in ADDITION to the $300 for suites that is being offered for general public sale? If I'm reading this right, as a lattitudes member who is booked in an AB suite for June 2009, I should have $600 OBC?

 

I'm with the others......I'm confused! :D

Join the club!

 

I think a few post back someone stated that CAS does not give Lattitude OBC promos so I think what you got (and I got) is something totally different. That's my story and I'm sticking to it;)

I did get the $300 OBC that is advertised for the sale..nothing to do with Latitudes. However, I luckily got the right person when I called. She put it right through for me, no problem. Got my cousin to call cause she had the same cabin catgory, right next door to me, booked on the same cruise through CAS. She got someone different on the phone who said if they put the OBC through for her, her cruise would go up in price a lot and it wasn't worth it. I called back and asked for the person I spoke with and she put it right through for my cousin.

 

So it really does depend on who you talk to. I think I'm gonna call back and ask about the Latitudes OBC...can't hurt.

The DMPP6 is the latitudes code. The one I was referring to was the current sale and that code is TAWLCN. Good luck and let me know as I didn't have any luck with any onboard credits and I booked the GV

I booked an AB suite on the Dawn yesterday. NCL and other TAs quoted

a certain price and I would have received $600.00 onboard credits. I booked at $654.00 less & received the $300.00 TAWLCN promo code credit. Is this starting to make sense to anyone? They really do make it so confusing. I feel you have to check like crazy to make sure you're getting all the credit you're entitled to.

When I called CAS last week..they gave me $50 OBC..for Tawlcn code..(inside room)...my confusion is that there was an "extra" OBC mentioned here ...for Lattitudes...(over and above Tawlcn)--but they said I already had that.(see previous post)..but the $50 is my only OBC for this cruise.....

Thanks to you wonderful people, I booked the Panama Canal cruise for 9/09 and got an $800 OBC.

I told my PCC that I had seen the offer on the boards for $600 OBC and she said, Oh no you will get alot more than that.....I booked and she gave me $800.

Don't know why, don't know how, but that will pay for alot of martinis

or whatever.:)

Thanks again for keeping us all informed.

That's great, Barbara! Did you book a suite? If so, it looks like you received the $500 plus $300 onboard credits. Nice!
