is the military discount considered "Available to the general public?"
No, because it isn't available to everyone.

Thanks LHP!

I received the second claim confirmation this afternoon with the Magic words.

"Hi Dwayne,

Thank you for contacting Carnival Cruise Lines. We appreciate the opportunity to be of assistance. Your Early Saver request has been approved!"

That one only took one day.

We booked Early Savers rate for the cruise in July; before the cruise was paid off Carnival was offering upgrades for past guests. Called my PVP at Carnival & he was able to cancel the early savers rate & get me into a past guest rate (same price) but I was able to be upgraded several cat. & to another deck. Woo Hoo!! Go PVP.

Congrats!

I may be missing something or misunderstood as I've not heard of "canceling" the Early Saver rate to take advantage of the Past Guest rate for price reductions, OBC's, and up-decks. I've always kept the Early Saver rate and Carnival has given them to me and kept the Early Saver rate on my booking. I like keeping the Early Saver rate in case there are any more price reductions.

Well i am confused.. I think Carnival made a mistake on my fare.. First i was in a PT room,we got our $100.00 certificate applied.. I upgraded to a cat 6a oceanview for $120.00 more for that cabin, 2 days later the fare dropped,I did the form and got $40.00 reduced off of my balance due. I called yesterday and asked if we could move our cabin 6 cabins down since i found out that the one I had could be noisy since its near a crew only section. She said there would be no change in fare, so we did the change.. Long story short my $80.00 that i still owed became $0.00 owed? huh, yes. I still should owe carnival $80.00 but somehow the balanced due went to 0.. The cabin rate for this room is at this time $379.00,, but on my view my bill section at carnival.com it says $339.00.. It is still $379.00 this morning. They made a mistake somewhere for the better for me..

Well Tim.......... that's a first that I have heard of! Congrats, you managed to confuse them to the point they just wanted to put you somewhere and be done with you Nothing wrong with coming out ahead for a change.

Just tell them I lost enough in the Valor casino to more than make up for the $80.
