  • General internal improvements in how we track the BRN (something you will see in address bar in booking flow).

Admin

  • Fix a bug when updating changes to NitroAPI that was returning an exception (internal).
  • Added deposit and final due details on the booking display.

Cruise

  • Lock Cruise Itinerary, new option added so we can override itineraries if the supplier is not responding or taking longer to fix in the feed.
  • OfficeID/Api setup enhancement to support net fare officeID generally for some markets (internal).
  • Fix a bug in price display between category and cabin page when a custom markup is entered. now the markup is accounted for and shown on cabin page as well.
  • Cruise Add-on options Enhancement
    • for some cruise line recently we've added the ability to select add-on options that display auto included add-on options and optional items available to be added to the booking. e.g. Kosher meal for Norwegian or Dining/Drinks package. In some cases they can be upgrades to premium beverage package. 
    • The enhancement done allows Odysseus to hide some items if they don't belong as cruise lines randomly send items there that an agency may not want an agent/customer to see. e.g. Norwegian was sending Net Rate option within there, that should not be visible. There is no easy identifier from cruise line to decide the display and so Odysseus has added some options that would need to be improved as we learn.

    • Fix an exception that was not handled properly when cruise line did not send the optional upgrades.
