Default Cabin Availability

I've been keeping tabs on the cabins available on my upcoming cruise. With only 24 days left, there are still 59 cabins available. Is this a normal number or alot? Also, what about guarantees? Are they counted in the total? Say there are 9 cabins still available in category 6A. But there are 6 guarantees for that category floating around. Does that mean there are really only 3 cabins or has the 6 been taken into consideration?

Sounds like a bunch but for this time of the year not all that unusual I would guess. Also a lot depends on the ship you are talking about. Which ship? As for the # of 6A's it should mean the # they have left to sell which should mean that the 6A guarentee is counted BUT they may have some higher up that they can upgrade those from a lower cat to.

This is a Carnival cruise on the Celebration Oct 14, 2000. I've checked other Carnival ships leaving about the same time - even the Celebration the next Sat. sailing, and there are not as many cabins available. I'm not complaining :-))) I've actually booked a 1A Guarantee and wouldn't mind a slight upgrade, though will be satisfied to just be on the cruise. This will be my first and I'm traveling solo as a "get away from it all". The less cabins booked, the less crowded the ship.

How do you check how many cabins are available?

Hi Jim,
When booking, you can ask the travel agent to let you know what cabins are available and pick from those. Thats one way to book or you can book with the guaranty catagory. In case you didn't read about booking with a guarantee, here is the lastest "kuki" article that explains it well. Except for our last cruise we've always picked a cabin number, last time we tried the guarantee and got exactly the catagory that we guaranteed. Figured it was worth a try??

Maybe I was not clear on my question. According to Chioak's
original post, a future cruise passenage seems to be able to
tell how many cabins have not been sold. I just wonder how
you go about getting this information.
Thanks,
Jim

For Carnival go to www.carnival.com. Click on "Enter Funline". Click on "Book Now". Click on "Click here to book online". Then you have to register with a name and password (don't worry, the cruise police won't hunt you down and you're not obligating yourself to anything). Then answer all the questions about your cruise (date, destination, ship, etc). You will get a list of cruises. Click the one you will be going on. That will give you a list of catagories avail. Click on each catagory and it will show you what cabins are available. You will also be able to check the prices of each catagory and whether they go down. I've gotten $150 back so far with price drops.

Since my original post it looks like the cruise I will be on is now almost sold out. Carnival Celebration 10/14/00. 20 days to go and I'll be a cruise junky too!!

Thanks, I know about their web site. However, I think they only
show 7-10 cabins at a time even if they have more. We book
the Oct 21's sailing on the Fascination in April/May. From then to now,
they always show 7 available cabins for our catagory. Lately, they been
upgrading people to 6D from 6A, 6B and 6C but they still don't show how
many 6D cabins are available.
BTW, We use an independant TA and not through the Carnival website.
