When looking for the best deal on Carnival Cruise Line you have to ask yourself what’s more important, the flexibility to make changes OR the ability to lock in the lowest rate?
Here is a breakdown of Carnival’s rate promotions to help you make the right decision for your next vacation: Carnival’s Fun Select Fare
- No restrictions!
You can cancel this puppy for a full refund *prior* to final payment due date with no questions asked!
- FREE 2 Category Upgrade
You select your stateroom and automatically receive a 2 category upgrade.
- Slightly higher rates
It’s the price you pay for all that flexibility and the the best cabins on the ship. 🙂
Carnival’s Early Saver Fare
- You must book early
5+ months in advance for 6+ day sailings, 3+ months in advance for 5+ day sailings
- More Stateroom selections!
When you book early you have a better chance of choosing your favorite stateroom location.
- Price Protection / lowest price guarantee
If a lower rate is found for the same ship, date, #guests, and accommodations the difference will be issued in the form of a refund before final payment (or an onboard credit if final payment has been made). But there are a few “gotchas”: 1) price protection is effective up to 2 business days prior to sailing 2) only for Carnival Advertised Rates 3) AND the biggie: it is up to the guest to find the lower rate and fill out the Price Protection Form in order to get a credit.
- More restrictions
The Early Saver deposit is non refundable, non transferable and no name changes are permitted. However for a $50 per/person fee you can get the deposit transferred to a Future Cruise Credit. And you can always use your Travel Insurance if in penalty with the Early Saver Fare code to cover anything after final payment has been made
- Early Saver Last Call
This fare is capacity controlled (fewer cabin selections!) and is general becomes available after Early Saver closes…around 90 days prior to sailing.
Carnival’s Super Saver Fare
- Bargain Basement Rates
These super discounted fares generally aren’t opened up until the Early Saver fares close.
- Guarantee Staterooms Only
You pick the stateroom type (balcony, ocean view or interior),BUT Carnival picks the exact cabin and assigns it at check-in.
