Sharon Miceli files her latest update from the Transatlantic crossing aboard the Crown Princess.
FREE MONEY. Need I say more? In this day and age it would be careless to ignore such an offer so it is always wise to stop by the Future Cruise Desk aboard your ship to find out how to earn some free spending money.
Here aboard the Princess ships the standard offer is to leave a deposit for another cruise and earn shipboard credit for that cruise, the amount of which is determined by the length of the voyage you decide on. Not to worry if you can’t make up your mind as to when and where you would like to cruise again because you have four years to make that decision or get a refund of the deposit at any time
Here on the Crown Princess they are having a limited time offer that will earn us DOUBLE the shipboard credit for making an onboard deposit for any Fall 2010 Caribbean or Panama Canal sailing. Imagine, instead of the possible $100 to $300 per cabin shipboard credit we can earn $200 to $600 to spend!
That would go a long way in covering the cost of tours, spa treatments, fine wines, or even some nice duty free baubles. And speaking of shopping onboard, we have been enjoying a two-day sale where every item is only $10! Evening bags, jewelry, wallets, ties and watches are some of the items you can score with your shipboard credit.
So don’t forget to have a visit with your Future Cruise Agent to find out what perks are being offered. Besides, here on Crown Princess, the Future Cruise Desk is right next door to the International Café where you can reward yourself with a decadent little sweet treat, like the delicacies to your left, after your visit. Enjoy!
Thanks for the tips, Sharon! Free Money is always popular! And I should mention that here at Online Vacation Center, we're usually able to offer a little something extra when you redeem your future cruise deposit on a new booking with us, on Princess or any of the cruise lines that offer the program. Be sure to ask a Personal Vacation Manager for all the details! You can reach us toll-free at 800-780-9002.
