In Sept, we're going on our 2nd cruise with Carnival. We got a great balcony rate because of the Presidents' Day Sale, but my PVP asked me if either my husband or I was retired military because he could give me another % off if we qualified. My husband was in National Guard but they don't consider that military.

At any rate, when I asked, the PVP told me that the discount is valid for any cruise. He didn't mention a senior discount. What is that? Do you have to be a member of AARP?

Thanks!!
How many days do I have left????

Chris

Hi! We are doing our first Carnival, the Baja Mexico 3 day for new years this year. We are going with another couple. The military discount took off $130 a person, but just for my cabin, for my husband and I. I thought that was awesome!!! Lil' Lori

We sailed Conquest in January, they didn't ask the Veteran question but hubby is veteran. They just asked if anyone was over 55. We paid $500 per cabin less than the other 2 that were with us for same category cabin.

We are planning trip in January again with all the kids and their spouses, this time I'll compare the senior to the military and see which is best, or even if they combine them.

Hmmm, I guess I'd better make some copies of one of my DD214's.

We just got back from our cruise on the Miracle. Great time! I had booked our cruise over a year in advance and told them my husband was active duty military(19yrs) so my husband was told to faxed his military ID to Carnival for proof. It was due to expire before the cruise, and we were told he needed to show that he would still be active duty at the time of our cruise in order to get a discount. So after a new one was issued we faxed it to them. I was under the impression from our Carnival agent you had to be active duty. Maybe they changed their policy. All worked out. Don't know the exact amount, but we had 2 rooms one was a balcony and one was a inside. Overall savings of around $600. Very good cruise.

God Bless all you vetarans. My son is currently in USMC (10 yrs, now, E-6) so I am glad you are getting a nice discount. My vacation planner asked me when I was booking if I was military, but never mentioned any AARP discount. I am 50 and a member of AARP, but does Carnival not give any discount before age 55+? Curious about future bookings.

Carnival's senior citizen discount is 55+ and is on select sailings. Also, dont forget to ask about resident rates, there are select sailings that based on what state you reside in you get an extra discount also.

I work for British Airways and we qualify for an interline discount, which is the same amount as military discount. Normal rate was $469 pp. Discounted rate was $309 pp. It is a substantial discount. They also offer discounts for police/firefighters/teachers. Don't know how much though. I have to fax a copy of my Airline ID badge.
