Not to bring you down but i talkde to carnival rep last night and you are not able to check in till 1:30. She said that the line ups start early. We got to the airport in ft.laurderdale at 11:00 am and did not get on the ship in Miami till 3:15. How awful! But once you are on you will have a super time. We plan on arriving the day before we embark to get to the dock earlier. We havn't booked yet. We are hoping for a special. Does that happen or are we better to book soon for Aug.? Can you let me know? Have a great cruise. Jackie
I would suggest you book ASAP with a reputable cruise agent, then if the prices go down they can secure that for you if possible. After you book, if you see where the price has gone down then immediately contact your agent and they will do all they can to get the price redudtion for you. The longer you wait for an August sailing to book the chances are the price will go up not down. This is still school vacation time so the ships fill up pretty quick. The days of catching those last minute deals are pretty much over....the only time you will see that is if the ship did not fill up and thats usually in off season.
