Booking next cruise while in the midst of current cruise

Hi all. Wondering how NCL works with booking next cruise while still on current cruise. I learned from another post that there is a $250 deposit, some kind of perk, and early booking deals. What I'm wondering there a travel person to book flights, pre-cruise hotel accomodtions, transportation, etc., like a normal travel agency would do for you? OR is the cruise booking just that..."booking the cruise only"? Will we be left to figure out the rest on our own? From North Dakota, so the more details that can be worked out for us, the better. Thank you in advance!

Head over to the future cruise desk. I think all they do is book the cruise, at that time, since airfares may not be available. You can then transfer the booking to a TA, or leave it with NCL. If you want them to handle air and hotels, they can do it.

You can also buy a future cruise voucher which is good for 4 years.

Thank you for the info. I guess we will double check with our TA before we leave just to make sure. Thanks again!!

If nothing else, but the voucher. $250 gets you $100 obc on your current cruise.

I think you can buy up to 4. You’ll get the obc for each one immediately. However, you can only use 1 per cabin when you book later. But they are good for 4 years.

This is not a bad deal, and you can transfer them(or at least you used to be able to).

The voucher is a great deal. We have frequently bought one. And they can be used for your next cruise regardless of how it is booked.

You can use 2 vouchers per cabin if you book a balcony or better, we just did that for our next cruise.

And .. the vouchers can be used through TAs or however you prefer to book and will cover your entire deposit.

You can book on board, then transfer to you favorite TA. It usually involves a letter to the cruise line, but in our case, we have done some of the homework, then hand the info to our TA to cross the T's and dot the I's. She has all our travel info and she is a wonder to work with. When you are board, if the think about it. Bring you TA's registry number.

We buy 4 $250 CRUISENEXT COUPONS every cruise on NCL...theyre good for up to 4 years...and you get a $500 OBC to they actually cost you $500...which goes to offset a certain perk we always buy on certain NCL BREAKAWAY CLASS ships...we use two for every cruise, since we get a balcony. there used to be a small perk just for actually booking on board too, but im not sure if that's still available. If anyone actually plans to do it, do your homework from home, as to cabin location and so on. Or you'll be doing it with 500 or so of your newest friends looking over your shoulder.
