Matt---I would suggest that first you call your travel agent (the one you booked the cruise through) and discuss this with him/her. Ask for a few more dasy for the parties to pay. The cruise industry does nto want to lose customers or bookings right now and they should be willing to work with you.If you booked from Carnival try to discuss with them. You may have to ask for a supervisor. If you have a credit card put the balance on the card. I would try as many alternatives as I could in order not to lose the cruise or money already put down. Good luck!
