Default Paying in installments question - too late?

Hi there
First time booking a cruise on my own, myself and five friends, six total are taking a cruise that leaves may 29th.

Five of us are ready to pay in full but that leaves the last person, my question is, is it too late to pay in installments? I would be able to pay a considerable amount, pretty much the 5/6ths of the price, leaving roughly 600 left. Will they go for such a deal, or should we just wait til my friend is ready? I'm afraid if we keep putting it off, we wont be able to book at all.

Thanks guys.


Oh, and its Carnival if that helps!

You can put down the initial deposit but final payment will be due around 70 days before sailing. So that means it will be due, in full, very soon.

Either your friend will have to come up with the money or the other five of you can cover the cost until they come up with the money.

No installment plan available.

Take care,
Mike

You have something like eight days to come up with it all if you book now with just a deposit, so yes, I think you've waited too late. Sorry.
