Looking for Someone Who Has Been on a Carnival Cruise!

My family is going on a cruise with Carnival in July. I was told by an agent that Carnival periodically sends out coupon books (for things on the ship). I was hoping to find someone who has a book and wants to part with it. I'd be willing to buy it for a nominal fee.

Thanks!

What can I do next?

I was just on a cruise with Carnival (Conquest). I do not know about the book. Good luck finding it.

We're going on a Carnival Cruise to the Bahamas in August and my travel agent hasn't sent us anything yet...though a heads up, i did see a cruise do's and don'ts on the Travel Channel last weekend that I thought was very interesting and have thought about seeing if it is on On Demand (Time Warner Cable) to have my husband watch as well. Thing is, you get a "credit card" to charge everything to that you purchase on the ship and they highly recommended checking your "account" daily because you're just putting everything on this card and when you're not spending cash from your wallet, sometimes it doesn't seem like your spending "real money" and they said that people often get caught off guard as to how much they spent - and when you go to check out when the cruise ends, your hit with a huge bill! So be careful!

Hi M.,

I went on two differnt Carnival Cruises last year and did not receive any coupon books. I didn't see anyone using coupons on the ship.

I am planning to take another cruise sometime in the next year. I am looking forward to another wonderful vacation! Have a fun time on your cruise!

My brother and his family cruise all the time. I asked them about it and they've never recieved any types of coupon books or discounts.

They cruise with Carnival, Norweigan and others.

He did say that to expect your final bill at the end of the trip to be a surprise, as in larger than you expect. There are all sorts of fees, etc involved. They travel with 3 kids and love it.

We went on a cruise last July and we received a coupon book. I think we only used like one coupon since I forgot about it. It is not like huge discounts but like buy one drink get one half off or free. I would maybe call Carnival and ask if they have one available. I cannot remember why we received it but we booked our cruise through Carnival and not a travel agent. Another thing I would suggest is to watch your Carnival Caper every morning. It is like there cruise newspaper. It lists the agenda for the day and other events going on around the ship. They usually list any specials going on that day. I believe the Carnival Caper was ready for us the night before each day so we looked it over each night to see what we would want to do around the ship the next day. I really hope this helps and if you have any questions please let me know. We are looking at going on another cruise soon and I know that I cannot wait.
