This makes a tremendous amount of sense, especially from the provisioning perspective.

This is all fine and good except that you can't make the purchase using onboard credit if you purchased it prior to boarding. I get a lot of on board credit which I find difficult to use if everything is pre-paid before I board including gratuities, speciality restaurants reservations, shore excursions and beverage packages.

This is a good idea to help people pay for vacations up front.

It makes good sense to be able to pre-purchase it -- better able to apply a budget.

Unfortunately, Carnival's "Cheers" program does not work financially for me.

If you adopt me, I promise to use your OBCs... :)

We don’t normally purchase this but I love being able to get everything paid for in advance.

As some one that purchased the CHEERS program on a whim on my first cruise, being able to really see all of the options before I get to the ship is a plus. It was my first cruise with my husband and when we first got on the ship they told us about the program and it sounded pretty cool but since it went on the sign and sail card the cost wasn't real until the last day of the cruise. Doing the math we definitely saved money by getting CHEERS but it cut into my oncruise budget.
