Default Booking while on board

The wife wants to go on a 12 day in September of 09, (liberty).
We cruise on the Glory in 26 days. Will there be an advantage to booking the next one while on this one?

When booking onboard you can usually get onboard credit, discounts or some other perk. You can transfer the booking to your TA after you get back.

Make sure you get the "Full" information before you book. There are times that the incentives and the rates aren't as good as they sound.

Take care,
Mike

I would like to know which Carnival ships have the option of booking on board. I'll be on the Liberty in September.

Carnival does not offer the option to book while onboard.

I think they have started on a experimental basis. Only on a few ships now. I saw a press release recently.

Found it--

We are testing a program on 4 vessels that will allow our guests the ease and convenience of booking their next Carnival cruise vacation while they are enjoying their current cruise. Carnival’s Loyalty & Cruise Experts will assist
guests in booking their next cruise at the Future Carnival Vacations desk on board the Carnival Liberty, Carnival Valor, and soon aboard Carnival Freedom and soon on our brand new Carnival Splendor.


Looks like it won't work for OP though.
