The 72 hour was basically a "cruise myth" that popped up after 9/11. I also believed it because someone I thought I could trust said so. Then I started seeing "last minute" deals that were 48 and 24 hours before sailing. I then did my own research and found out that it had been 72 hours for a VERY short time after 9/11.

The official policy with Carnival is actually 1 hour before sailing but Carnival's booking will only accept bookings 24 hours before sailing but you may be able to book at the pier. Royal Caribbean is also 24 hours before sailing.

Take care,
Mike
Sorry, Mike (or maybe not !). I do know the difference. Kuki, as far as I know, doesn't go out in the freezing cold and dig through the ice to try to catch a fish that could just as easily be caught in the summer !

It's very interesting to know that 72 hours isn't the time limit and hasn't been for quite a while. I see many posts that still say that it is!
