My brother and his girlfriend have split up, therefore she won't be going on the cruise with us on 1/6/08 on the Carnival Valor. Is there any way he can change the name on her ticket to bring his cousin or is just going to have to go alone?

jackinbox, Yes they can change the name. If it is within penalty period the charge is $50. If it is before penalty, it is free.

Even if you're in penalty ask whoever you talk to to go to a supervisor and ask to have the fee waived. They won't always do it but I've had them do it for clients a few times. Be really sweet to them. Kindness goes a long way with the folks at the cruiselines just like it does in person with people.

cheers, Neil

The cruise being on 1/6/08 you should not be in the plenty phase. (Normaly 70 days prior to the cruise) You should be able to change it without charge. IF you were all traveling in the same cabin, it may even be possible just to delete her from the cruise and not pay for her fare at all. But if they had their own cabin, then he would end up paying for extra and probably would be better off replacing the girlfriend as you are planning. But the 70 day mark is very close, so act today!
