Anyone out there that has a sailing coming up with Princess, be sure you visit the Captains Circle Desk onboard if you intend to sail with them again. Ask about an FCC and how their program works. They have the best program for purchasing a future cruise credit in the industry. You don't even have to select the cruise or when you want to take it to take advantage of the program. You pay $100. per person and when you book your next cruise, you don't have to put anything down as a deposit, the money you paid for the FCC becomes the only deposit needed, no matter how many days your next cruise or what the deposit amount would normally have been. Then when you book your next cruise, you'll get onboard credit of between $25. and $150. per person depending on the length of the cruise. If there is some sort of promotion available through the agency you book with for add'l OBC because they bought a group or any other reason, the credits are combinable. That means any agency credit plus the credit for your FCC. Your T/A can apply the FCC for you, you don't have to book direct to get it unless you prefer to. It's a great program and I'm discovering not many people are aware of it or the benefits.

Cheers, Neil

Especially helpful with the deposits going up to 30% of the cruise fare.

Neil, that is what we did with HAL it is a great program. I do not know if Princess does the same thing, but HAL will also allow you to pay for another person. We were going to put a deposit down for some friends, but make the mistake of waiting until the last day. We were told if we had come in earlier they would have been able to do it for us. It takes time to generate a new member number, and we were out of days. You also have two years until you have to book the cruise.

The Princess plan gives you four years to select a cruise.

We are just back from a Princess cruise, and we also book a future cruise, and another cruise on board for the OBC advantage. Its a great bargin compared to othr cruiselines.

In the past we always had paid for 2 future cruises & this year we arranged for a third cruise & I didn't get credit for the last one. From now on I'll be sure to have at least 3 pair for - just in case. We can always get our deposit back if we decide to cruise less.

Hi travelpro
Just a word to add to that if you are from the uk you do not even have to pay any deposit we did our first princess cruise last year on the 2nd week we went to see about future cruises joined the captains circle and got some onboard credit if we take our next cruise within three years so anyone from the uk definately go see about it.
Just looking for our next cruise now
Julie
