Default Got OBC on existing reservation!

Thanks to some of you fine folks on another thread I just got $250 in OBC. I don't pay much attention to NCL offers for OBC sales because they usually apply only to new reservations, but a poster here said is was on all reservations. Sceptical, I called and shazam, I am now the proud owner of 250 OBC bucks for our March sailing on the Spirit.

Now if I can figure out how to pay my bar bill for the other 6 days, life will be good

You $250 will go a long way as long as you don't decide to eat in the special dining rooms every night.

Glad you got it...
me too...

What, you mean Freestyle isn't FREE?

Why doesn't somebody report this on a thread

I got very lucky with this promo too. It took several phone calls, but each time we called the price went down and of course we ended up with the OBC. I saved several hundreds of dollars. It was a really good deal. There was such hype and hoopla-la at the beginning of the sale, a lot of people only called in once at the beginning, but some prices went down over time and so it was worth it to pursue it.

Actually I did too and after 10 years of being an agent plus all the sailings we have done this is the first for us. I say the first, the first time we got a really great deal....

I am sorry you thought freestyle meant everything was free, but they stopped that when people started complaining about not having anything to complain about...

Does that mean NCL has banished the dreaded chair hog, too!

When my TA called back to verify the OBC he also told me the cruise had got down $20, too. Woohoo - we be partying now!

Just call your TA and ask.
If you don't ask the answer is always 'no'
Good luck

you can call your TA. she/he should be willing to make a call for you,but I have to admit I have called NCL several times this week, asking for OBC for those sailing in the next few weeks, the answer has been the same: Nope....I still say, give it a try..
