Default Contacting An Actual Live Person

Hi,

My wife and I went on our first ever cruise last January for our 26th wedding Aniversary! And it was incredible.

It turned us on so much to Cruising that we want to put together a large group cruise. But we have been having no luck at all doing it online. All we get is auto responders saying someone will contact us or call their 800 number.

I'm talking about a LARGE group here,, easily 400 to 500 people,, and can very easily go well over a thousand! But can i get anyone at Carnival to contact me via E-Mail,

NO!

Anyone have any ideas?

Why can't you use the phone??? I find it hard to believe they wouldn't be falling all over themselves to book that many people at once. As a matter of fact, the next day after I visited the Carnival site and registered to look at prices, an agent called ME out of the blue to see if I wanted more information. Recently, I was having trouble contacting my Carnival agent to get a credit for a price decrease and ended up calling their 1-888-carnival number and an agent picked up the call and took care of it for me. So, I can't imagine why you can't just pick up the phone and get things started.

Contact a travel agent. You'll do much better on pricing and amenities, than you will by calling Carnival direct.

With that many people I suggest a TA that specializes in group travel. No reason to take chances.

With that many people, I would call Carnival and SEVERAL TAs to find the best deal. You're talking about a lot of money and should get several bids. You should also get your own cruise for free as the group's organizer.

Doesn't anyone on this board recognize a troll when they see one?

As you can tell from my first response, I was skeptical of the realism of his post but I gave him the benefit of the doubt. At any rate, even if this is bogus, maybe the exchange will help someone with a real group, like a reunion, get some good info.
