It's a hold per person. On the Fantasy, since it's a shorter cruise, it's probably about 150.00 pp. Have your TA find out for you, or call Carnival directly.

How much would they put for me and my three children in one cabin? Is a certain amount mandatory? How about the tipping? I'm really worrying about this because I only have a small limit credit card and need to save that for my rental car. Please help me rest my mind and start enjoying the countdown! Thanks!

Each person is charged an amount that will be put on hold. Since Carnival automatically charges a $10.00 per day tip per person, that is included in the hold, unless you go to the Purser's Office to have it removed. Trish35...depends on how many nights your cruise is. Best bet is to bring cash or traveller's checks to cover the hold, if you have a low-limit credit card.

I was of the understanding that on a 7 night cruise - it's $200 per per, on carnival. I do remember reading someplace that if you used cash, it was increased to $250. Does that sound right to the rest of you??

Yes - I think you're right about that.
