Default onboard ship credits offer

I am booked on a Celebrity cruise to the mediterranean in November. I notice Celebrity is offering onboard ship credits to people who book this cruise between now and the end of the month. Can I request Celbrity to offer me the same credits?

Yes!!!! You can and should ask. If you booked via a travel agent the agent should be the one doing the asking.

The offer is "probably" for new bookings only but if it isn't you can cancel and rebook if the price has not gone up.

Celebrity is pretty good about working with people on this sort of thing but there is no guarantee.

Call your agent or Celebrity.

Take care,
Mike

If you booked with an online discount agency, some will not let you cancel and rebook, I tried with Smartcruiser. So I could not get the ship board credit.

I called Princess to see if they would give the on board credit since the travel agency wouldn't they also said no. It has to come from your travel agency

Well, if your cruise is a ways off - you can book with another agency who
is offering your more for your money. You will have to cancel your first
reservation, though and get your deposit refunded. I did this and it worked
out great but the second agent had to wait until the first booking was cancelled (she did have a "hold" on the cabins we wanted - we just couldn't put money down at first. There is a really good website called
"CruiseComplete" where you can enter the cruise you are looking at and
different agencies will make their offers. Your name is completely
confidential and then you can compare offers. Be sure to check references and if a member of the BBB. Hope I don't get into trouble for
suggesting this site.
