Instead of using N&N travel or other agency, we booked directly with Carnival for the cheaper rate. Our Carnival agent (and N&N travel a.k.a. SATO) said that military discounts may apply after Jan 1. Our agent maintains a list of military cruisers and if rates go down for military, he will credit our account. We sail 3 May. Best of luck!
yes....we received a military discount on our thanksgiving cruise...we actually booked it through carnival and they were very helpful. From what I gathered, they only give a certain number of MD per ship...but it's a great deal.
