First I would find out if DU would even GIVE you OBC due to the transfer (as PP mentioned) if they do, shoot I'd go ahead and explain to your friend that you need that OBC, that's it's about the same as getting xx%(whatever the % of your cruise fare it ends up being) and that you know she would do the same thing and you'd do it for her if the roles were reserved..

For what it's worth, I transferred an OBB to DU just this past month and was only offered HALF of what is posted on their site. (As has been the case with other OBBs transferred in the past year or so.) I am by no means complaining about it as I fully realize that their (DUs)commission is being cut by DCL as well. Not sure if that makes it seem a little more palatable to just let it ride with your friend managing your ressie.

Keep the BFF as your travel agent for this booking unless she is not such a B of an FF and you don't mind risking the friendship over some onboard credit or a fruit basket.

But book your next cruise through another agency - or book it yourself if you prefer to have control over it.

Here's what I would do... I would share w/my BFF/TA that other agencies are offering significant OBCs and tell her that she should check with her agency owner as her agency may offer something as well, and wouldn't it be great to learn together, and have you benefit!
Turning it around to appear as a benefit to her could really benefit both of you!
