We bought 2 of the $100.00 certificates twards a future cruise.and depending on the length of cruise you get $50.00 3-5 day,$100.00 7 day, $200.00 12 day onboard ship credit per cabin. So the $100.00 goes for your down payment and you have 5 years to use them. They are 100% refundable if you want to cancel. Has anyone used one of these?They are sold only on 5 ships and they seemed like a good deal.

Heh... we bought 2 also. I think LHP said she has used them. I figured they were worth it. And surely we will use them in 5 years. The best thing is if for some reason you can't use them they will refund your $100. (Although I am sure it is not an easy to do process for that)

They are a good deal. I can't figure out which is the 5th ship they are offered on. I knew they were available on the Liberty, Valor, Freedom, and Splendor. Does anyone know?

What would be the purpose of them? Are you saving money?

Yes, you can save money. The certificates are good toward the cruise deposit, and give you on board credits.

Right. You are basically pre-paying your deposit and for that you get a OBC (size of which depends on the length of the cruise) that is free money in my book since you are at least going to be paying for tips on board.

What I thought I heard and maybe TimC can tell me if I heard correctly, was that the Certificate was your deposit (for 2 people) so you are basically only having to drop $100 for deposit instead of $200.

no.. the $100.00 goes tward your first payment. you still have to put down $250.00 ppr for a 7 day cruise or the amount they do for 3-5 day cruise.. then add the $100.00 to the owed balance.
