After calling Carnival a couple times about my Sept.17,2006 cruise of which I had Deck 1(Riviera)cabin #1328,, I was upgraded to deck 2
(Main) cabin # 2293,, Second call to Carnival scored me a deck 6 (Upper) cabin TBA with the possibility of an upgrade for a cost of $30.00 than I paid, I have a $30.00 credit. That's the best news I've had in a while, now I am ready to cruise and afraid to call them again thinking they may return me to where I started and keep the 30.00 bucks.
Have a save and fun cruise all.

Hey David,

Good for you! It does pay to keep an eye on it. I too have been "moved" up twice, and received an additional discount.

Hope you have a wonderful Cruise!

On my recent Carnival Cruise, I was not a pest and was upgraded twice. I suspect that my very seasoned travel agent had a lot to do with that. As for additional discounts, again, my travel agent informed me that she had gotten one just before final payment was due. That was a bonus. And then, everyone on the ship was given onboard credits as we had a change in itinerary in order to avoid the worst of Tropical Storm Chris. Naturally, some folks, who like to spend their vacations trying to get bill adjustments, didn't settle for this. And, after working themselves into needless tizzies, they got additional money off. I had a great time, like the 23 other people I was with. Getting a few bucks back wasn't our focus.

Just wondering why you called in the first place? Was it just that you were unhappy with your deck assignment? Or did you have problems on a previous cruise?
I guess I am just wondering... Are they just giving away upgrades for free? (or only $30?)

Hermy, I reason I called was to get an upgrade for my sister( was going to be a surprise to her) who will be joining me on the cruise( her first, with her husband to be), but I wasn't able to do it because she booked with a travel agent so I have to do it though her agent. But while there the agent(Carnival) told me the upgrade I was asking for may not cost me anything extra monies, she checked with her supervisor and gave me the good news. Now I have to check with my sisters travel agent to see if she can get her the same deal. The upgrades were actual upgrades from deck 1 to deck 6,,, with a $30.00 discount, so I have a $30.00 credit when I board the ship. Have a safe and fun cruise all.

Hermy,

I don't know deege's details. I can tell you this. If you book an assigned cabin directly with Carnival and the price goes down they do not call and tell you that. If you book a guarantee category directly you have a good chance of being "moved" up decks. They won't call and tell you that either. You will see it when your Cruise Docs arrive.

deege is probably being a "pest" because he knows on certain cruises the prices have gone down and "move-ups" are being offered since he booked.

Thanks...
I have another question... I booked already. If the price goes down, I assume they wont call me. But, what if I call them? Will I get the cheaper price?

Hermy if you booked on your own and the price goes down, you are correct, Carnival will not call you, but if you monitor the price and the price goes down then call Carnival and ask either for the reduction or an upgrade. If you booked through an agent, sometimes they will check, but its according to how many bookings they have whether they will monitor it for you, but most agents do not get upset if you monitor it and let them know that you found a cheaper price, they will be happy to get the upgrade or reduction in price for you.

By monitoring do you mean checking the Carnival web site from time to time to see if your cruise price has gone down. Would love to learn how to save a buck or two since we are also paying for the in-laws for thier 25th anni. of course any money we save will problay be spent on excursion or ect on the trip so Carnival will still be getting the money ha ha
