Default Final Payment?

Hi All,

We are going on Valor in October, and it is getting close to that scary final payment time. Luckily, my husband and I have been putting a little on the card at a time, so we only have $300 left to pay (WHOOHOO!). But my question is, will they send out something, or call about the final payment? Both our parents are going, and I don't want them to miss out. It would just be our luck that they forgot, and then they miss out on the cruise. I am a nervous nelly when it comes to things like this, and I always try to pay it off early!!

Thanks in Advance,

A bad cruise is still better than a good week at work!!!

I always book thru a Travel Agent and they always send me a reminder. It's also marked in big red letters on my calendar so I don't forget.

Hi Erin,
DH, daughter and I are booked for the 7/17/05 (eastern) sailing on the Valor, and just made our final payment. This is going to be our 4th Carnival cruise. It has been my experience that...as long as the final payment is made on time (60 days prior to sail date) you won't have any problems. Doc's are usually sent to you about 4 - 6 weeks prior to sailing. As soon as you get your docs, look them over for any possible errors (or omissions). If there are errors/omissions, call Carnival and they will clear it up for you....otherwise, do your "Doc Dance" and finish packing!!

PS Don't forget to put your docs in a safe place till you need them!!

Wow we are also on the Valor October 2nd. There is a total of 11 of us going.

It's great to know someone besides us are going. Lol

I believe final payments are due 70 days prior to sailing for a 7 day cruise.

It is due 70 days out...............put it on your calendar about 60 days out, just to be sure and call your parents. Some TA's call with a reminder, but many don't, especially if they have a lot of cruise clients (they'd be reminding people almost daily! ). If you miss final payment, Carnival will cancel your cruise! It's up to to you make sure it gets in on time.

No one should be waiting until they get their tickets to check for and fix mistakes!!!! That should be done as soon as possible after booking because if you're within penalty it will cost you for any corrections such as name spelling .
