Repo cruises 20% off??

I read someone received 20% off their repositioning cruise when booking on board another cruise. Can anyone confirm or deny if this is still the case?

The standard onboard booking is a 10% discount off the cruise fare, only a 10% deposit is required, and an onboard credit dependent upon the length of the cruise. I haven't heard of any other onboard booking offer that differs. Maybe they were confused about the 10% discount and 10% deposit - somehow got that into 20%?

wow, hope that comes up when I'm onboard!

OP, I guess it's possible but probably you shouldn't expect it.

When we were on the 1/8/11 Magic there was a 20% offer with additional OBC for the Dream's MV. Wish we could have done that one!!! There have been 20% offers available onboard only when the cruises haven't been selling and it is close to the cruise date. The TA had that offer a couple years ago from what I remember.

What's the sail date? Thanks! And did they say when this promo would end? We're on the Magic in 6 more weeks and I'm itching to book another like, RIGHT NOW.

While considering a couples trip EBTA, I started to look into airfare back to the states. WHEW! Fly from Barcelona to Orlando was $1400 PP, or fly to London on Iberia then to Sanford(Florida) was almost $850PP. The $2600.00 cruise was CHEAP CHEAP. But flying home wasn't.
