How many days until your next cruise??? Part 2

What's a move over offer? 

It is where they have over sold the ship so they make an offer to some people to give up their cabin and do a different cruise.

In most cases people have airfares and accommodation attached but when you don't the offers are quite attractive. In this case, it is a full refund (as OBC) and an alternate cruise for the same length and cost.

Thanks for your response please excuse my lack of understanding on this but I can't see how this would be an attractive offer ie. 1. to give up your much anticipated holiday 

2. A full refund (as OBC)  (you then use this to pay for 3.)

3. An alternate cruise for the same length and cost.

 

You are not getting anything 'extra' as such, just same for same but at a different date or have I misunderstood??

 

thanks

Okay, 

Point 1 is a negative offer, as you miss your holiday/cruise. 

Point 2 is a neutral offer as you get your money back (albeit as OBC on the chosen replacement cruise).

Point 3 is a positive offer as it is a free cruise.

 

So in my case it was a week cruise for around $1500 pp, we would get another week cruise for free to replace this one and $3000 OBC (whatever is not spent, is refunded back at the end of the cruise).
