How to use shore excursion credit?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Added an excursion to my cart but there was no way for me to add the excursion credit to it. Can someone explain how that works and how you apply the credit to a booking?

 

Thx

Anthony

You account will be credited with $50.00 after the completion of the excursion, remember it is per cabin not per person.

You would need to call to book and they will not charge you until you are on the ship.

Also wondering since I've never had the excursion credit offer/promo before......so essentially you pay the full price on your credit card if booking in advance, and then while on the cruise if you complete the excursion they put a $50 credit on your on board account?

I also have $50 shore excursion credit, I think you have to call and reserve the excursion then they will apply the credit to your account. Shore excursion number 866-625-1167

In a nutshell - if you have the excursion credit, it is applied to your account after you take an excursion.  $50/cabin (unless you have double then it would be $100).  If you don't take a NCL excursion at a given port, there is no credit.

 

If you book online, you will pay for your excursion and the $50 will apply to other on-board expenses or returned to you at the end of the cruise if you have pre-paid for everything and don't have on-board expenses.

 

If you call to book, you can choose to charge the cost of the excursions to your on-board account, in which case the $50 will help to offset the cost of the excursions, plus any OBC you might have can also be used to pay for excursions.  The same applies if you book an excursion onboard.

 

The $50 will never be applied until the day of the excursion - past any cancellation opportunity.  The exception to this is if you take a post-cruise excursion - in that case, the credit is applied to your final bill.

I’ve done this a couple times... it is best to call the NCL excursion line.  They will book your excursion and not charge you in advance.  After you board, you will be charged in full to your onboard account the entire cost of all excursions booked.(be sure if you have a latitudes discount it is applied).  Then each day after you return from the excursions your on board account will be credited $50.  If you have a disembark excursion, that is credited the day before.

My method

Phone Miami shore excursion desk.  They will ask for your booking number and will know you have the shorex perk.

Do NOT BOOK your shore excursions but RESERVE them.

In that way there is no discussion about paying or not paying, the person will automatically reserve them for you and tou will receive a Shorex Confirmation email.

When on board ALL reserved shorex will be charged overnight the first night.  (CHECK you have any Latitude discount allowed; you may have to talk with the on board shorex staff)

Overnight after you have done the shorex the $50 (or $100 if you got two perks) will be credited to your account.  (Or less if the shorex less Latitudes discount brought the cost to under $50/$100)

Remember that the $50/$100 is per Cabin NOT per person.

Folks, there’s no need to keep starting new threads to ask the same questions about how to use the shorex promo:

Unless you keep adding to your thread yourself it MAY finish up on P3 or P4 where no one goes to look!!!   That is why people keep starting new threads on a \n old topic.  And that is not only true for your thread.

So true......   CC would be all of 3 pages if only one thread per subject were followed. 

 

also, @julig22 pretty much nailed it without going to another thread / link.

Sadly, you are correct. But there’s no need for folks to scroll and scroll through multiple pages, there’s a search engine here. And for questions like this one, it’s pretty safe to assume it’s been addressed before.

Thanks for all the replies.

 

I never ask a question without searching first. Whatever terminology I was using was not being found hence the post. This is not the first time I have searched for an item without finding.

I agree with the search engine not always being very helpful.

 

We called to reserve our excursions.  It was easy and works well for us.  The excursion credits will be applied against the excursion charges on the onboard account.  We also have a $250 obc from the travel agency that will also go toward that.
