Default Booking Cruise While On Board

I have heard that if you book your next cruise while on board that you get a great deal. Is this so, or would I be better off sticking with a travel agent?

I've checked the prices onboard ships a number of times and honestly, I haven't heard an offer yet that I thought was anything special.
If I'm not mistaken though, I think you can book onboard, then transfer the booking to an agent who can keep their eyes on future price reductions for you.

Kuki is correct,

Most cruise lines dont offer anything "super special" but they will be able to offer you the latest promo rate and may include a perck such as a shipboard credit.

Most lines will credit the booking back to your current agent or give you the option of choosing an agency to handle the booking which could result in an additonal discount from the agent.
