I always shop the internet and CCL Website for several dates, then I go to my TA with an expected cost- so far she has been able to find a better price. This last time I saw an ad in Carnivals magazine for a past guest special. Something like if you book by Nov.1 prices are starting at $375 pp for lowest cat. interior room (only cruises from jan 05- nov 05) with a best availible upgrade,-- anyways the promotion was something like that. i went to my TA and was able to get a 6A upgraded to 6D for only $350 pp. What a great deal!
