Just received a discount for my Oct. cruise. I already booked months ago and now the travel agent is telling me the price was lowered. My trip was discounted a couple of hundred dollars. I am not complaining but I find it odd. Did this ever happen to anyone? How can there be huge savings on a cruise and not on any other Carnival ship at that time. Is there something I don't know about that they are not telling me? thanks Dee
There was also a fee of $100.The travel agent said it was a transaction fee? I tried to ask Carnival and they had no idea. The travel agent said that they do not get the money. She said I was saving a couple of hundred so it was worth the fee. I can't understand why there would be a fee. What do you think? Dee
A fee? Sounds like your TA might be stringing you along. Was it an "administrative fee?"
If so, it's a fee from your TA, not Carnival.
Port fee, maybe?

Sounds great to me. One time we had booked an inside cabin near some friends. But about a month before the sail date, the TA called to say that he got me upgraded to an outside cabin and we got back $100 apiece. Boy, were my friends jealous! Haven't had an inside cabin since. <G>
