GEM discount help


msg12188

Recommended Posts

We are traveling on the GEM 2/3/2010 along with 5 other couples. Another couple is ready to book however they do not qualify for any union, senior or military discounts like the rest of us were able to receive. Does anyone have any other discount ideas that they may be able to use? We all booked directly through NCL PCC and want to keep it that way as we may soon be hitting that magic 8 cabins and qualify for the group discount. The VISA promotion does not work when booking directly with NCL.

 

Thanks!

I think you should have booked this through a travel agent. They could have pulled the group space and booked you into the group. NCL has changed their group amenity policy. They will give the group discount and amenities back to cabin #1, even if you do not get the full eight. Some of the amenities have a cabin minimum, like a cocktail party, but most do not. Let me know if you have any questions.

There might be a code for OBC if you use an American Express Card. Also has the couple sailed on NCL before and do they gamble? If they do they might get a discount though CAS (Casino at Sea) The number for CAS is 877-752-9625. In addition, if you gamble with Harrah's and have their total rewards card, I believe there is a discount for that. I believe that also has to be booked through CAS. Good luck.

Sometimes, closer to final payment date, the cruiseline will offer regional or state discounts, but there's no guarantee on that. You would have to book at whatever rate they are asking today. You are booking early and therefore get the pick of cabins if that means anything to them, rather than waiting for a "special" later on, when the choice cabin may not be available any more.

It is their first cruise and will be their (delayed) honeymoon. They gamble a bit but do not have a Harrah's Total Rewards. No AMEX either.

 

That's for the feedback.
