Is there a minimum amount you must deposit? Also, can you still go through a travel agent or must you go with RCI? Thanks!
It is $100 per person when you make the "NextCruise" booking, which is what it is called. This money will be deducted from the deposit for the cruise you eventually choose. The booking can be used with either RCI directly or with an agent. My current one defaulted to my agent, who is listed on the booking. But you can change this if you wish.
Once you activate the booking by choosing a cruise, any additional deposit is due and then they will assign the shipboard credit you earned which is based on the cruise length. It can be anywhere from $50 to $200.
