The Future Cruise Credit is a win/win situation. You'll have $100.00 charged to your credit card (or as many $100.00's as you want
) and you can use that as your down payment on any
cruise with Princess in the next 4 years. You don't have to schedule a cruise while on the ship if you don't want to.
You also get onboard credit. The amount depends on the cabin you've booked. From the Princess site:

If, for some "weird"
reason you don't cruise with Princess in the next four years, they'll refund your deposit $$.
