Unless there is a "deal" going on, I figure that the lines want 15 - 20% of the cruise price.

I had to put down $500 for a 7 night E. carribean cruise with Carnival, for my wife and I. We are in a balcony room... not sure if room type had anything to do with it, but minimum payment was $500 when we made our reservation.

Unless the cruise line happens to be running a special on deposits for your sailing, the norm for that cruise should be $250 PP

one other thing I just thought of, if you want to book the cruise, but dont want to pay for it all on credit card and allow interest to build up while you pay it off, Carnival will allow you to make payments to them in any dollar amount once you have paid you min. payment when you book. I believe you must have your cruise paid in full 45 days prior to your cruise date. Happy Sailing!

Our deposit was $500 per cabin (but it does work out to be $250 pp also). But, the balance had to be paid 75 days before the cruise.

Cruiznut2 got it right. For an eight day, it's normally $300 per person. Happy Sailing,
Ken
