Has anyone found a bargain when booking a new cruise while on one?
If so any special tips when you should do this? Should you wait untill the end of your trip or does it matter? Would love alot of help on this.
Mostly you just get on board credit. This is about the only thing you get as a bonus for booking on board. You used to get good discounts and were allowed to do ghost bookings but, from everything I've seen lately, those days are gone. Shop around before you go on the cruise and you'll know if you are getting any kind of deal.
We *always* do an open booking when sailing Princess and usually geta $100 per person credit (balcony cabin). Then we just transfer it to the travel agency we book through when the right trip comes along, and the booking is good for I think 2-4 years. Only $100 per person to do so.

I usually book something while on board usually open ended booking, the deposit is only $100 per person regardless of length of cruise, I get onboard credit, and once I book something I can transfer the whole shibang to my usual agent and get the lost price and any further reductions if they become available later.
It is an all around win - win situation. Also fully refundable if you change your mind.
