Yes, you can still book a future cruise with Carnival, but you can no longer book a future cruise certificate. The difference is that with a future cruise, you have to select a specific cruise and with a future cruise certificate you don't - you can wait to decide at a later date.
If you know exactly what you want, then it's still a good deal - you just don't have the flexibility that a future cruise certificate offers.
