I did it, called and talked to Carnival and Bless her heart she tried and I was on hold forever but just couldn't match. For 74.00 more I went from a BL guarantee to the exact cabin on the Empress deck(7230), insurance, and the bonus of 3 day/2 night stay at a hotel. . I was just leary of the guarantee, didn't want to be stuck somewhere we would hate, being this our 1st balcony. Call her back to cancel and she didn't blame me one bit. Said I found a great deal. Hope so!! She said cat. 8A would have been 52.00 more than what we paid for all the extras and an 8B!!!! Yahoo!!
