What Cruise Lines qualify for onboard credit?

We offer onboard credit on all Cruise Lines.

What can I use my onboard credit for?

You can use your onboard credit during your cruise for expenses like drinks, spa treatments, shore excursions(only if booked through the cruise line) and more. The higher the price of your cruise, the more you earn.

Can you redeem unspent onboard credit for cash?

If your onboard credit is not fully spent on your cruise it cannot be redeemed for cash, so please be sure to spend it all before the end of your cruise. If it remains unused it is returned to the credit card that it was originally charged to, which in the case of this promotion, means it is returned to VIP Vacation Pros.

How much onboard credit will I receive?

We offer industry leading complimentary onboard credits ranging from $50 – $2,000, depending on the cruise cost and how and when it was booked. Here is a breakdown of the onboard credit you will receive based on the total cost of your voyage. Note that you will receive the full onboard credit if you book a new reservation, and half of the onboard credit if you book your next vacation as a transfer or while you are on a ship. This is outlined below:

Onboard Credit Table


*The overall cost of a cruise is based on the commissionable portion of the fare only and doesn’t include taxes, gratuities, port expenses, government fees, insurance, airfare, hotel stays,  transfers, shore excursions, or Add-ons. This includes deducting a non-commissionable fare(NCF) amount of $20-30 per person per night depending on length of cruise. In short, we calculate your onboard credit on the same commissionable fare amount that  cruiselines base our commission on.

*2023 – 2024 onboard credit rewards are listed in US Dollars.

*Offer is valid on qualifying new cruises booked now through 12/31/23. Sail date must occur by 12/31/24.

*VIP Vacation Pros grants one onboard credit per cabin and it cannot be combined for multiple reservations. If a reservation is modified before or after final payment and the price of a cruise is adjusted, the onboard credit amount will be adjusted accordingly. If a cruise is canceled, the onboard credit is deemed null and void.

*Unused onboard credit is not redeemable for a refund, credit, or cash.

*Onboard credit can be redeemed for most valid charges incurred on a cruise including cruiseline organized shore excursions, shipboard spa treatments, gratuities, alcoholic beverages, souvenirs, photographs, and a host of activities on the  Cruise and in most cases on the cruiseline's private island(some exclusions may apply). Onboard credit can not be used for non-cruiseline arranged shore excursions or purchases made while in port.

*All terms and conditions of VIP Vacation Pros' onboard credit promotion are subject to change without notice.
