Default pre=cruise

We booked our cruise directly with Carnival. Do they also do pre-cruise bookings?

As in booking your hotel for the night before and your airline flights? Only if you ask them to and pay them to.

Michelle, just like booking your cruise, Carnival can book your pre-stay hotel and your air deviation. It will definetly cost you much more money than if you did this yourself. Cruise line pre-stay hotel rates are per person. When you book a hotel the cost is usually per room. Sometimes that amount can be almost double what one would pay directly to a hotel. Maybe the precruise stay includes transfers, but a $10 taxi fare in two to three rides does not make up the price difference: Airport to Hotel, Hotel to Pier, Pier to Airport. Also, you may transfer your reservation to any travel agency including an on-line agency with no penalty. Some agencies will even give you an additional discount.
Bon Voyage

We are on Destiny..Jan 5th and TA told us that Carnival is not offering a pre cruise package at that sailing. Sooooo...after reading a lot of info here...I went to priceline.com and got the Wyndham Condado Resort for $75.00 on Jan 4th night for our pre cruise! That is a HUGE savings from anywhere else....long story short, I am very thankful Carnival didn't offer pre cruise because they do use that resort and it is much higher price! Cathy
