That is correct. So there is no point in holding back booking till you are onboard. Usually: the longer you wait, the higher the price will be.

Excellent point! You do get the OBC credit though, so there's some benefit to booking onboard.

Yes, but as the black-out dates are the most popular dates (hence the black-out) chances are that by the time you book on board the rate has risen more than you will receive in OBC. Therefore it's recommended strategy to book as soon as possible and reshop on board to find out if that will save you money.

Edit: I just looked it up. Block-out dates receive the OBC and the reduced deposit on 7 night and longer cruises. They do not receive the 10% discount on cruise fare.
