Default Is this a good deal?

Not sure how many of you have seen this, but RCI is offering a "one day only sale", today. It is for 50% off booking deposit, and up to $200 onboard spending. (for 10 night cruises). It's $100 for 6-9 nights, and down from there.

Anyway, I've never booked a cruise. Is this a good deal? They sure make it seem like one.

Can you explain why you think it is such a good deal? From my limited knowledge, I know onboard spending will be hefty....so $100 is basically a drop in the bucket (better than nothing).

Also, although it's 50% the booking deposit, that's only for the money you would owe up front right? I would still pay the rest.

It seems to be that I'm only getting the $100 in actuality.

Default Good Deal

Yes, it is good. I found most travel agencies offering additional goodies as well. I booked our 2008 cruise (3rd one on Mariner, E. Carrib) and got prepaid gratuities for 2 of us, the $100 onboard credit from RCI Total val of about $240) and the reduced deposit; however this last item was reduced by $125 pp not 50% off of reg. I snagged one of those hump balcony cabins.

Rccl doesn't discount anymore but offers these types of incentives so if your a fan of RCCL as we are you take advantage when offe comes around
