Default Question - Booking a cruise a year in advance

We are going on our 2nd cruise 9-07 Fantasy - thinking about booking another one for 2008 for my daughter's Senior trip...the question is:

The deposit will be due at the time of booking, but when will the final balance be due? is it 60days prior to sailing date?

Thanks in advance.

CajunCruiser;
You are correct it is 60 days prior. That is basically what we did. Got back in Feb. and booked another for next Jan. in April. Will do the same next year. keeps us on our toes.

Sixty days before departure date is the norm.

It's usually 60 days, but if you're booking a "holiday" cruise (Thanksgiving or Christmas, maybe July 4th) it will probably be at least 90-120 days. The holiday sailings are very popular!

Check with your TA or your PVP to find out for sure.

Cajun, we're leaving on the Conquest May 20th with a big group for a senior trip. Our TA wanted final payment 80 days prior to departure. If you are considering a group trip with other students from her class, PM me BEFORE you contact Carnival or a TA so I can give you some tips and hints I've learned the HARD WAY! It's not easy to get ANYONE to book a student group on this ship, but we did succeed!

No, this would be a "mom/daughter" senior trip....I don't want the responsibility of another teenager going out of the country.

Thank you all so much for your help!

I was just wondering that if one of their "GREATEST ONE DAY SALE EVER" specials came along soon with a great price for past cruisers, should I take advantage of it & needed to know how far in advance the final payment would be due.
