I checked my cruise personalizer yesterday on Princess. It said I have a $75 balance for shipboard credit for some promotion. Yeah! Thats a nice surprize! Has anyone else gotten this?

I got my cruise tickets the other day and had a $25 per person shipboard credit for my wife and I...Don't know why but I am not complaining! Where do you look on the personalizer to see?:AL:USA

Many time this is done by the Travel Agent as a thank you for using them. I have a $200 credit for booking through Princess direct on a special sale. There are many reasons, but it is always nice to spend.

MAny times, if the cruise line lowers the cost of the cruise (after you've paid) they will give you a shipboard credit. This helps ward off the event that you might find the price lower and want it - by giving you the credit before hand, they've addressed the issue and all parties are generally happy.

Ah ha, that won't happen. The only time the cruise line will give you a refund is when you ask them. They won't automatically give you a credit as a refund.

I am getting one for my cruise in November for $300 but it is becaue they took out some stops and they canceled a lot of excursions.

If you book a "phantom cruise" while on board, they will give you either a $50 or $100 shipboard credit person.

There's a $25 per person shipboard credit promo going around right now. Just got it yesterday and on top of our future booking credit, it'll cover the tips charged to our account. :)

We also have $75 per person for our February cruise. It is not a thank you from our TA, I asked. It is not a future booking credit as we did not go that route. Obviously it is some sort of promotion, but which one, I have no clue. Was just happy to get it!

I think we have a $50 ship board credit right now for each of the two cabins we booked for 3/2005.

That's funny- because when I called Princess directly for prices on cabins for our Feb. 18th cruise on the Dawn, they wouldn't match the $100/pp shipboard credit that Expedia was offering us for the exact same cabin, same exact price, except we were getting the credit. I even said, "well I guess I should just book with them, huh?" and they said yes. Go figure!

Laurie - It must be a travel-agent only bonus then. Booking directly with the cruise lines is a different thing sometimes. Hope you got a good deal with Expedia. To make sure, check a few other websites. :)
