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!

Just booked a NCL cruise today ... and thought I'll share this: "Now you can book ANY stateroom category and apply two CruiseNext deposits on 6+ day sailings, or CruiseNext Lite deposits on 3-5 day sailings. Offer ends August 31, 2019." reference:

Good catch. looks like the bean counters finally caught up to another way to sell more insides. Im sure they did the math, endlessly, fleetwide. As I posted above, we almost always buy them, sometimes up to 4 per cruise. They're "bankable" for up to 4 years. And if you have to cancel a cruise, you call them, and it goes back into your account. Used to be you actually got a paper certificate delivered to your stateroom within a day of buying em. not no mo. you can see em on your onboard account to confirm the purchase. Its a good deal, depending on how much you're willing to owe them when you settle up for the cruise you're on.

Thanks ... actually last year while I was on the Bliss for my first NCL cruise, they were trying to convince me to purchase 8 CruiseNext deposits.
