Default Any benefit to booking next cruise while onboard?

Hello! I see people lined up to speak with a PVP onboard. I am aware of the ES discounts. But are there better discounts when you choose to book next cruise while still onboard?

Thanks for answering!

I don't know of any other. What benefits you is booking from your home where you are over the cruising buzz, and can think clearly about what you want to do.

You can't fault Carnival for wanting to get people while their hot, so to speak, but common sense says that it is best to think before you buy.

We couldn't book anything for the next cruise on the Inspiration when we were on it a couple of weeks ago so we came home and booked it while viewing the prices online with a rep on the phone.

We had some low prices showing but my sister kept upping the decks and paying for the extra charges for me so I just let it roll.

I asked about booking another cruise while onboard Glory in April and was told that they do not do that anymore. Anyone know different.

Most of the Conquest class ships sell next cruises. I dont know why the Glory doesnt, they seem to be the exception. I dont know that they ever had a next cruise desk onboard?

You get OBC on a future cruise, $50 for 5 day, $75 for a 6 day, and $100 for a 7 day. The sign says "up to $200 OBC, but for practical purposes, I dont even know of any cruises long enough to get $200 OBC.

If you book while onboard, they will give you two vouchers for your friends and family, to book two more cabins and get the same OBC if they book the same cruise you did.

Now that the Welcome Back credit is going away, I will be using them for all my future cruises I book. I have 3 unused certificates. So far I only used one, because I was told I couldnt use them on cruises I have already booked the prices went up on, they have to be ones the price hasnt gone up on before the certificates can be applied to already booked cruises. .... hence the fact Iv only used one, so far, but I will be using the others. np. You do have to snail mail the certificates in to get them applied when you book a new cruise.
