Did you have a cruise booked for 2020 or 2021 that has been canceled? If so, you likely have a Future Cruise Credit (FCC). If you have an FCC, you probably have a lot of questions like What exactly is a Future Cruise Credit or How can I use a Future Cruise Credit to plan my next dream vacation? As we continue to have changes affecting sailings and the cruise industry as a whole, it comes as no surprise that it can be a bit difficult to keep up with all of the information. 

With so many changes, how exactly are our members keeping up with the details for their Future Cruise Credits? We polled the community with this question and the top responses we received were that members were using things like spreadsheets,  post-it-notes, and scraps of notebook paper. After reading these responses, we knew there had to be an easier way for people to keep all of their FCC information right in one place!

In addition to tracking FCC’s on canceled sailings, this tool can be used to track booking certificates that were made onboard a previous sailing. Never forget a cruise credit or miss an expiration date again!

We took members' feedback and are excited to debut the first-ever Cruise Credit Tracker on Shipmate. This new feature is a way to keep track of every aspect of your Future Cruise Credit (FCC), future booking certificates, or other cruise line issued credits right in one place on your phone, so you never forget a cruise credit It’s very easy to use and makes organizing the complicated system of FCCs a simple process.

Glad to have it, but it's a pita to have to page month-by-month to enter dates 12 and 18 months in the future.
