Default Shipboard credits

Who determines the amount of shipboard credit ,the cruise line or the TA ?

We were on a cruise last year and received $100 ,another passenger we met received $200 .

There are variations on shipboard credits. Travel agents can purchase extra shipboard credits for customers, they can earn extra "sbc" with group space. Sbc can vary depending on level of the passengers in the cruise lines repeaters clubs, or the sbc offered by the cruise lines can vary with the timing of your booking, if they are offering sales on sailings that may not have been selling well earlier.

There's of course, also the possibility the person got a larger sbc, but paid more for their cruise fare.
