Default Military Discount

There was a discussion a little while ago about who was eligible. Carnival requires you to send a copy of your identification card to them. The card can be active duty, reserves or retiree. Also you can book 3 cabins with your military id.

I called Carnival direct and was told there were no Military Discounts on the cruise I was booking for during spring break (March 2004).

They don't offer them on every cruise, but I haven't booked one yet that we didn't use it.

Mu wife and I used the Military discount on our upcoming cruise. However, it is my son who is in the Military. There was really no problem in getting the discount. All I had to do was have my son fax a copy of his I.D. with his Drivers license. Worked for us. We go a nice discount. Good luck.

which cruise in march wouldn't take it? I'm going on the Triumph March 20th and I have some friends in the Navy who are thinking of coming as well, if they can get a discount that would be nice.

Sounds like all the spring break cruises fill up without having to use it.

I'm using it on the Holiday January 26th and I just booked last week.

Good luck.

I checked into this for the New Year's Cruise we are booked on. My son is in the Army Reserves. Carnival had the holiday cruise dates blacked out for this type of discount. I'm sure it fills without them having to offer any discounts.

I was able to use my daughters military discount on Paradise 1/18/04. It was tough getting her orders in since she is in Baghdad, but it all worked out for us, and it was a good discount

Hi there...

I noticed you're going on the Paradise on the same week as we are...are you sailing the Eastern Caribbean?

You need to ask you TA or whoever you're booking through. I went directly through Carnival.

We just booked a 7 day on the Carnival Inspiration May 16 with a military discount. Price per person with port and taxes included was $571.90 for a 6A Guarantee. Needless to say we were floored. Great price booked directly with Carnival. We did talk to a TA here local who quoted the same price.

I'm on the Jubilee out of Puerto Rico 3/13. The amount discounted if any, depends on the cruise. On the more popular ones it is fifty to ninety-nine dollars. Mine was over two hundred.

Last word is that there is anew policy. Retiree's only get the discount on their room rather than theirs +1. Just thought you might want to know. Also I understand this is an ever changing policy so you milage may vary!

Don't forget to check other discounts, too. We found that our cruise contact was able to get us a better deal than the military discount. We have had great luck with our military....especially with the Disney cruiselines and the ship and shore packages.
