Smile Booking A Cruise

What are the advantages of booking a cruise while onboard?

You may get a cheaper rate, upgrade, or on board credit for the cruise you want to book.

I'm kicking myself because they were offering $200 off the same cruise or any other cruise with Carnival if I booked while on board. I passed it by...I then booked later and did NOT get that $200 discount. Take advantage of it while u can!!

Thank you! I may just do that. I have a cruise in mind and I will compare prices while onboard.

That is the best advice....know your prices going in...so that you can establish if you are getting a good enough deal to lock it in on the ship.

Also know that some of the "advertised" prices are Early Saver (which a lot of people love)....but there are a lot of restrictions...so make sure you completely understand Early Saver before you book that rate.
