You are correct. I had missed the Carnival Early Saver program that was introduced does give people price protection for cruises that are booked 3 months or more before a 3-5 day sailing and 5 months or more before a 6 day and longer cruise.
They will not give OBC credits for cruises that were not booked under the Early Saver program. It was announced last December that this practice would be discontinued.
