Just one more point to make. If you do book the Next Cruise (which doesn't make you pick a particular sailing at that time) you only have to put down the deposit for 1 person which is $100. If you put two names on the booking you will have to give them $200. Also make sure that they give you the Friends and Family Certificates that go along with the Next Cruise certificate. You are eligible to get 2 of these. What that means is: if someone you know books the same cruise as you within 30 days of your booking your cruise they are also eligible for the same onboard credit that you get for your Next Cruise. I used mine to book a second cabin for my kids and they also got the $100 OBC. Sometimes RCCL doesn't just give them out , you have to ask.
