Receive Up to $1,000 in Onboard Credit Per Cabin for Qualifying Cruises

Y ou can receive up to $1,000 in onboard credit per cabin for qualifying cruises when you use your MasterCard on Expedia to book your reservations for new bookings only between today, Monday, January 2, 2017 through Tuesday, January 31, 2017 at 11:59 in the evening Pacific Standard Time — which is also the date and time when the deposit for your reservation is due — for sailings departing between Wednesday, February 1, 2017 through Sunday, December 31, 2017.

You must have your cruise booked and fully paid — and your redemption form must be completed and submitted — at least 21 days prior to the date of sailing in order to qualify for receiving the onboard credit.

Once the redemption form has been submitted, your booking will be reviewed and — if eligible — the onboard credit will be applied to the booking within three weeks prior to the departure date of your sailing.

Receive Up to $1,000 in Onboard Credit

Onboard credit amount will vary based on the cruise cabin price, which is the total price of the cruise only fare based on the first and second guest in the cabin; and it does not include insurance, government fees, taxes and port expenses.

Cruise Cabin Price Maximum Onboard Credit for Cruises

on which the maximum onboard credit is $250.00
$500.00 – $999.00 $50.00
$1,000.00 – $1,999.00 $100.00
$2,000.00 – $2,999.00 $200.00

$5,000.00 – $9,999.00 $500.00
$10,000.00 or greater $1,000.00

Select Terms and Conditions

The deposit and final payment — as well as any interim payments — must be submitted to Expedia with a valid MasterCard.

Only one redemption form submission per booking will be accepted; and Expedia is not responsible for redemption forms submitted with incorrect information. Submissions received within 20 days prior to the date of sailing will not be eligible for the offer.

All other maximum credit amounts are associated with the respective cabin price. This offer can be combined with all other promotions. This offer is not available on Avalon or Uniworld bookings.

Other terms and conditions — and additional cruise line restrictions — apply; and the onboard credit:

  • Is valid per cabin, not per person
  • Is in United States dollars
  • Will appear in the onboard account of the passenger on the day of embarkation
  • May not be used in the casino
  • May not be used towards gratuities
  • Has no cash value for any unused portions
  • Is not valid for cancelled or rebooked cruises
  • Cannot be transferred
  • Is capacity controlled
  • May be modified or withdrawn without prior notice


Basically, you are receiving a discount of up to ten percent off of your cruise when you take advantage of this offer and book your cruise reservation through Expedia; but before you do, ensure that you are indeed getting the maximum value out of your cruising experience by researching discounts and included amenities from offers elsewhere.
