I just booked my 3rd cruise with Carnival and I really don't see where the fares are getting cheaper. Our last cruise, during the Past Guest Cocktail Party, the Activities Director stated that the more you cruise , the lower the fares go. I get Military discounts and past guest discounts but it seems like theres no discount at all. I've gone in and priced cruises as a first time cruiser and there's like a $10 difference. Do you old salts go thru Carnival or a travel agent. Carnival agents say nobody can be lower than them but some peple say they still go thru travel agents-I'm confused. All you 20 and 30 some cruise people-tell me how to do it-Thanks
I have the military discount and my PVP told me the same...only a Carnival employee discount trumps the military discount.
What is VERY interesting to me is the second cruise I booked with Carnival is twice as long, yet only 800.00 more for 4 people. This means to me there is more value with taking longer cruises.
