I ALWAYS advise my clients that if they want to do another cruise with the same cruise line to take advantage of the future cruise offers. They are a very good deal because the deposit is reduced, you get onboard credit, you don't have to select a specific cruise and date, plus you can can cancel and get a full refund, so it's win-win situation. And you can tell them you're working with an agent and the agent will then be given the information so they can service it for you. There's really no downside to it.
Carnival has done away with their future cruise certificate program, so alot of people are very irritated with them. I just hope this is not something other cruise lines are considering.
