I have noticed on several web pages that there is a military discount on certain cruises. Is this from Carnival or the TA?
The reason I ask is we are booked for the 5/30 Destiny Cruise. My husband is Air Force Reserves with a valid ID. When my sister booked the trip for us she did not get any kind of special discounts. Should I call the TA that booked us and ask?? Or should I let it drop being we were upgraded already from a 4F (inside lido deck) to a 8D (outside Lido deck). ((which I am already very greatful for))
It never hurts to ask!! The discount comes from Carnival, but if you booked through a TA I'd call them and have him/her call and see if it is available for your sailing. I've found that it's usually a $50pp savings. My husband is retired Air Force.
AKcruiser Good Luck!!

I would call...it wouldn't hurt. When I originally called Carnival to get pricing, they asked me if either of us was in the military. My husband is honorably discharged from the Air Force, but they said it didn't apply to us. Drats!
