Default Booking future cruise onboard

I'm cruising RCCL this summer and am curious about booking future cruises onboard. How does this work? Are the prices good? What are the benefits of booking onboard as opposed to working with a TA at home?

Has anyone had a good (or bad) experience doing this?

Thanks for your input.

The advantages, according to the Future Cruise Consultant on the Rhapsody, are the best choice of cabins, itineraries, and ships. If you book onboard you can have the booking transferred to your TA . The TA can then watch prices to see if they come down. There really didn't seem to be much difference in price by booking onboard.

This was Deb and My experience......while on the Celebrity Galaxy (Dec 2001) we booked for the Celebrity Century (Dec 2002). We were locked in at what we think was a great price (gone up 100pp since then).......membership in Captains club (35 dollar fee waived)....a free upgrade.....100 dollar ship credit on the Century. We were pleased. Well worth checking into. If the price goes down (probably won't) we will get the difference back. But I advise checking out different ways to book....price with TA's...research on line....etc and go with what feels right for you. Your only limitation in researching to get a deal you like is yourself <G> Good luck
PS if you think you might want to book another cruise while on ship......I suggest......doing research before you go so you will have knowledge to compare. Remember.....always price same ship...same date...same cat cabin you want.....any change in those can significantly change the price.
