Default Repeat cruiser discount on Princess?

Does anyone know if I get a discount to book again with Princess? Any idea roughly how much of a discount? I'm trying to figure out if its significant enough to hold off until I cruise with them and then book my next cruise or should I go ahead and take advantage of the ES discount?

Any info would help, I needed this yesterday because I found a great deal and I want to get in on it.

seattleguy37,

My last Princess cruise was about three years ago, so my recollection may or may not be right and it's also possible that Princess changed the program after the parent company merged operations with Carnival Corporation. IIRC, Princess does not offer discounts for repeat passengers but there are benefits for booking aboard a cruise. If you found a good deal, though, go ahead and book since the deal may disappear. You can always put an "open booking" in the system to obtain the "onboard booking" deals for a subsequent cruise.

Princess will offer special deals to their Captain's Circle Club Members- via e-mail or letter. Princess also has a discount for referrals- if you have a friend who wants to cruise you can refer them to Princess and if they book you will get a discount off your booking.

Are you folks sure about that? I go online to the Princess site to check prices for cruises and then shop around. I have received notices that ask that I login "to get my discounted price". The price with the login is better than the one without the login.

Now maybe that is for a particular cruise and a certain cabin type and does not apply to all cruises.

On our next cruise, they also dropped the price $1500/cabin about 3 months ago. Only Princess had that price. The TAs did not know about it.

And yes, I also get the e-mail and mail "specials".

I haven't tried the online site but I get the newletters that offer me a discount to their choice of destinations because I am a past guest.
