While onboard a Princess Cruise you have the opportunity to visit their “Future Princess Cruise Consultant”. At this visit you will have the chance to get a great deal on your next Princess cruise by making a “Ghost booking” with only a $100 deposit. This means you are able to book a future Princess cruise, that you will take place at an undeclared future date, and on an unspecified ship. You decide the specifics of when to sail and on which ship at a later date. The booking is good up to four years, and is able to be transferred to your favorite TA.
What is the advantage of all this? For example, you could choose to book a fifteen day cruise with that ‘ghost’ booking. It would normally be $900.oo deposit to lock up a sailing of that length. But Princess accepts your Ghost booking , only ($100) as deposit from its’ loyal customer (you).
And depending on the length of the cruise and cabin chosen, you also get up to $150.oo per person cabin credit waiting for you when you board that cruise. Suppose you have to cancel? No problem; you get your money back on the initial deposit. Suppose you book and need to change plans. This is not a problem either; simply have your TA do the necessary paperwork and it's a done deal. Want to purchase multiple "Ghost Bookings”? You can do that too.
Also available, while onboard the ship, are "Share the wealth coupons", usually 2 coupons offered per cabin. With these you can offer the same great deal to family and friends who may be sailing with you whenever you do decide to take your “ghost booking” cruise. It’s almost too good a deal to pass up.
