Well that didn't take long. No more rebating but now "Get a Free Toaster" with your next cruise. <VBG>

Take care,
Mike

Wow, I can redeem my points for a hot plate and cookware to use in the cabin. No more tips for room service. Wonder if I can order TV dinners?

OK Lou, we are just giving you a hard time. Thanks for the info.

BTW Lou, when are we going to cruise together again??

Have to agree. Free "stuff" is no incentive to get me to cruise on a certain line. I'd rather pay less for a similar cruise and not get the free stuff.

Cheers,
Michelle P.

is this just an offer from the on-line TA or is it cruise-line sponsored?
I would much rather get a discount on my cruise,or shipboard credits than points towards any kind of purchases

I don't care for any of the "consumer goods rewards programs" because then you also have to try and figure out what the "REAL" value of the product you're getting (that you don't really need) is.

Tell me my cruise is $200 less than what RCI has posted, and I'm happy.

this is something that the on line ta has gotten the ok to do from celeb/rccl---this is in lieu of discounted prices ---book a cruise and get points (the amount would be based on the cabin booked) and then you can turn them in for a gift ----we will most likely have to pay for postage
