See. Here's the thing. If you go on a 7n cruise, you get the $100 OBC, and the price of the cruise is $100 less. But you paid $100 up front. So its only worth $100.
I suppose technically it has a value of $200, since it reduces the money spent on the cruise by $100 and gives $100 OBC ... but unless you're giving it as a gift, its still only an extra $100 to you.
Still a good deal for a regular cruiser, but anyone that can sit back and look at the math will figure out what its actual value is.
