Hi arie,

Good to see you again! Congratulations on booking the Freedom!

If I were you I'd use the Carnival transfers from the airport to the ship and back. Here's the link to the current information (2006) so you can get an idea of how it works:

http://www.carnival.com/CMS/FAQs/Transfers_Europe.aspx

I'm not sure what your question is about the inauguration?

If your clock is right now, only 344 days to go !

Hi arie,

Are you talking about an onboard credit that you got by booking your next cruise while on your last one? Or a credit for some kind of problem you had?

If so, it should show up automatically. I'm not familiar with the Carnival "My Reservation" area, but I'd think your credits would show there since you've booked already.

Anyone with experience know for sure

Hi arie,

Are you sure they didn't apply the $150.00 credit to your onboard charges on the Destiny? That's the way it's usually handled if you're still onboard. Check your bill if you still have it.

If it's not on there, I'd call Carnival and ask about it.

Yes, we're cruising in 96 days ! Since we booked last February it's been a long wait! (But not as long as your's !)

Arie,

Did you book your cruise with Cruisetravel again? If so, check with them about your onboard credits. You need an official paper from Carnival that states you are entitled to the onboard credits. If you receive that, take it with you at the Freedom, go to the pursers desk and they add it to you sail and sign account.
If any questions, send me a mail, we have dealed with this through cruisetravel before. You know where to find me

Jacqueline

Sorry Mates, but I will try to explain to Arie in Dutch, why he needs an official certificate from Carnival for his onboard credit on the next cruise, we dealt with that before and it took us 6 months before we got figured out how to get it. Being a non-US citizen it is difficult to get things clear in Miami.

Arie,

Carnival in Alkmaar is een "officieel" agentschap van Carnival in Nederland. Mijn ervaring met hen is dat zij niet echt contact hebben met het hoofdkantoor in Miami. Als jullie van de vorige cruise, die was toch geboekt bij Cruise travel, een tegoedbon krijgen, moet Cruisetravel dit voor jullie regelen. Als buitenlander is het vrij moeilijk om in Miami uit te leggen dat je een brief van hen nodig hebt waarin jullie tegoed officieel wordt toegekend. Dat heb je echt nodig, anders krijg je je onboard credit echt niet. Je kan natuurlijk proberen te bellen met Carnival Miami, bel dan via teledump: 0900 1919, luister naar de tekst, toets het carnival nummer in en sluit af met een # op je toestel, dan bel je voor heel weinig geld, en voor ons geld dat je eind van de middag, begin van de avond pas kan bellen.
Kom je er niet uit, mail me dan op mijn hotmail.

Groetjes
Jacq.

thank you, dank je

i think that it is not so good too youth carnival alkmaar but they told us that they can give is even or better then cruise travel so thats why we booked by them

ik denk dat ik misschien er niet zo goed aangedaan heb om te boeken bij carnival alkmaar maar zij vertelde ons op de beurs in utrecht dat wij beter bij hun konden boeken want zij behoren tot de echte vertegenwoordiger in nederland. wij kregen wel een aardige korting maar geen credits en ook niet de tegemoedkoming voor het ongerief op onze virige cruise. maar de tijd zal het ons leren en ik weet zeker dat we met de carnival freedom een geweldige cruise gaan maken.

Arie, don't let them fool you and if you can change your booking to Cruisetravel, please do. You can bargain with cruisetravel about the price, they can give you the same deal. My experience with Alkmaar is that they are in name the agency, but in reality they do know nothing about Carnivals pricing. Just make sure you get that official paper for your onboard credits, believe me, if you board the freedom the pursers desk will know nothing about the perks.
If you need any help, please mail me, or catch me on the msn like before.

Arie, I honestly do not know. On the official Carnival Website they are mentioned as the dutch branch. We tried to book through them couple of years ago and the woman who answered the phone at that time has her own travelagency as well, besides booking Carnival cruises, and it was obvious she had then no idea what I was talking about and compared prices on the carnival website Miami and their prices.
Needless to say we do not book through them.

Arie, ik zou het niet weten. Op de officiele website van Carnival Miami staan ze wel vermeld. We hebben een paar jaar geleden ook geprobeerd bij hen te boeken, maar de vrouw aan de telefoon toen heeft naast het Carnival agentschap, haar eigen reisbureau, en had werkelijk geen idee waar ik het allemaal over had, ik wilde prijzen vergelijken met wat Carnival Miami aanbood op hun website en wat zij voor mij kon betekenen. Je begrijp natuurlijk wel dat we daar nooit onze cruises zullen boeken.

Greetings, groetjes
Jacqueline

I am amazed at the speed you two can switch languages! Belgium and The Netherlands hold special places in my heart. I lived in Belgium as a child and my father lives in Bergen Op Zoom. I miss him dearly. We talk frequently, but I haven't seen him in 19 years. I remember such happy times in both places. The years haven't erased the visions of the beautiful countries from my mind!

welvome mstill i hope you like our talk about carnival agency in the netherlands i will be gla en ik zou het leuk vinden je eem keer te ontmoeten op een cruise in de toekomsatd too met you on a cruise in the next time.

welkom mstill ik hoop dat je onze praat over carnival agenten in nederland leuk vind en ik zou het leuk vinden je eem keer te ontmoeten op een cruise in de toekomst.

i try too explain that we and our friends get mony from carnival 150 dollar a cabin because we were delai our last cruise with the carnival destiny the girl sad that it was not true but cruise travel found it on our papers in the computer. also when we booked there was a offer from carnival 200 dollar onboard credit. so i was thinking we booked our next cruise next year because they said it must be before septemder next year. thats why we booked this cruise.

what do you think when we booked a little cruise for a couple of days with carnival with the help from cruise travel can we then ask for the onboard promise what do you think.

Arie, they should give you the onboard credit for your freedom cruise, no matter what, and again Cruisetravel has to arrange that for you, because the delay happened on your Destiny cruise booked by them. Just nag them on the phone and make them fax/email/call Carnival HQ in Miami till it is done. You have plenty of time before your freedom sail, but CT and Carnival need some time to correpond on that, it takes a couple of weeks.

Go for it, Arie, you are entitled to the onboard credits.

Arie, we book our cruises through a travel agent in America.
We book our flights ourselves with Martinair.
