I let Carnival take care of my air in April of 99leaving from Prov. RI to Miami our first flight was at 6:55 am to Pittsburgh then our next flight was at 9:10am to Miami we were checked in and in our rooms by 1:00pm. I'm doing the Destiny May 13, 2001 don't have my flight info on that yet.I also heard if they arrange your flight and there are delays because of weather or the airlines they will wait for you to get on the boat if your late just ask them directly you can go on carnival.com and e-mail them of call the 800 # or ask your TA
Not always Alesia. In many cases you may well save money by booking on your own but make sure you figure in the transfers from the airport to the port as well as any other costs you think you may have. Additionally, if your flight is a little late or delayed then the ship 'may' wait for a bit to ensure you make the sailing. If you do your own air you are on your own, period. That all said, I encourage you to check costs for both ways and to avoid missing your ship I highly suggest you arrive a day early if there is any way possible to do so. This is especially true in the winter months with so many weather related delays from our northern states.
