Frequently Asked Questions: Future Cruise Credit Edition

What is future cruise credit / fcc?

Credit from the cruise line applied to your account to be used as payment for new bookings.

How is future cruise credit calculated?

FCC is based on the cruise fare (not including taxes, port fees, excursions, pre-paid gratuities, etc.) per person. In 2020, many cruise lines offer “bonus” credit, which is also calculated based on the cruise fare.

What can future cruise credit be used for?

Future cruise credit is applied as payment toward new bookings. Some cruise lines require a deposit made with a traditional form of payment. FCC is — for most cruise lines — not used for pre-paid gratuities, excursions, spa services, etc.

How are FCC and on board credit different?

On board credit (OBC) is used for extra services, not as payment toward your cruise fare. For example, OBC could be used to pay for excursions, spa services, drinks, and other “extra’s” on board.

Does future cruise credit expire?

Yes! FCC has two important dates: book by and sail by. These are uncertain times and the dates may or may not be flexible. The cruise lines are not obligated (or good at) reminding you of your dates.

I booked direct with the cruise line and now have future cruise credit. Do I have to book direct again or can I use a travel advisor?

Your FCC is applied to your account with the cruise line but does not limit you to booking directly online or through the call center. A travel advisor can assist you with your new booking, is unbiased, and has your best interests in mind.

I have questions not answered here, who do I contact?

For information, advice, and assistance, with future cruise credit, call Joel or Jennifer at 844-483-6669. You may also use the contact form.
