John Q. Public considers a booking to be made once a DEPOSIT is given.
Could it be a flaw in the way they explain this Princess product to the public? I think they need to rewrite this policy.
Just thought I could help someone.
When you refer someone, Princess send them a letter advising them of the referral. A snail mail letter. Then they need to respond. All this takes time. Of course a reservation would preclude getting credit, so I don't see what you find wrong.
