I can totally relate to your Carnival Website frustration. For two hours I tried unsuccessfully to book a particular cruise, every time the whole list of prices would come up with the various cabin categories, then I would click the one I wanted and it would go into wait mode, time would pass then it would eventually come up with a box that said "promo code not valid" well I wasn't enterring any promo codes, just selecting the cabin type and rate type from the list they gave me. I finally caved in and called my so-so PVP and said 'hey, what gives?" He responds "I don't know, it must mean you should be using a PVP" I managed to hold back on the "hey, if they'd assign me one that wasn't so cocky all the time I might." Eventually, I finally get this ship to show me cabins, the only ones they show are the highest of the rates and only doubles, no quads. Fed up completely with the website, I booked with a TA. Normally I don't but I was soooo frustrated. Not frustrated enough to punt puppies, but frustrated enough to possibly use some unladylike expressions.
