Am finding our August 7th Elation cruise becoming less and less expensive due to Carnival's GENEROUS military discounts . . . saved $400 plus on one cabin due to my husband being a veteran and $300 plus on our other cabin since our 23 year old son is active in the Air Force. Of course I'll give the 23 yr old part of what I saved as a "thank you" (ha ha) We also received a 2 catagory upgrade initially thru a special with our TA so I'm feeling very lucky!!! For the vet discount you need the DD214 and the active family discount is the CPM3 and you need drivers license and military ID.
