Air reservations booked through the cruise line are often on a "request" basis until confirmed by the airline, which usually happens about a month before the sailing, but only for those passengers who have booked by that time. Considering your booking was last-minute, I'm not surprised that Carnival was unable to get approval from the airline for your seats. You were, however, confirmed on the ship. Carnival has been fair with you, offering to allow you to cancel (with full refund, if I read your message right) if you are unable to book your own flights. Sorry you missed out on your cruise; perhaps next time you can consider booking at least several months in advance.
