Default Who is your favorite PVP at Carnival?

Today I talked to 3 different PVP planners at Carnival about the same cruise, and got 3 different quotes ranging over $400 dollars. Can someone help me out with who I should talk to get a good PVP planner. The young lady who booked my first cruise is not with Carnival anymore so I am looking for a new PVP but cannot seem to find a good one.

Have you tried your local Travel Agent, or one of the on line companies? I have not used PVP's yet, for the simple reason, that your complaint is very common.

I just booked my next cruise with carnival pvp, and I usually use a traval agent, and I am so very happy with her, I have called her at least three times with a question and if she does not answer she calls me back within 10 min., yesterday for the very first time, in seven cruises I received a call from her, telling me my cruise I booked for next February just went down in price, and she was adjusting my bill. That has NEVER happened to me.

AlaskanGrown-

Our Carnival PVP is Rick Maday. He is awesome.

He is very patient, stays on top of your booking, and will help with whatever he can. He have even contacted us from his home while on vacation. Now that is dedication.

We have sailed 3 times to date with all trips being booked by Rick. He are sailing #4 this July and just booked #5, again with Rick.

So happy that we have referred 2 other friends to him for bookings.

Good luck.



Safe sailing.

I came across a great PVP planner by the name of Valerie Tefts, she was awesome booking our cruise, and will be making more reservations with her in the future.

Rachel Salmari has been great for me. Taking all the time I needed and then changing everything around for me when my wife got pregnant.

I use Bob Wilson and he is wonderful, always checks for best available cabin and price. I travel solo so this is important. Katie

No doubt about it...Lesley DaCosta by far the best.. she has booked all 7 of our cruises and always gets us a great deal returns all our calls promptly and is very pleasant.

Default she is the best

I have booked 3 cruises with Kanecia and she is great! She always calls me right back and we always seem to get a great deal. We were going to sail Valor but the price went up so she let me know about Glory and that they had a great price on the date range i wanted!

Eugene Perez is our PVP. He has been with Carnival for several years. We try and cruise once a year and he has booked at least the last 5 or 6. He called me this morning to see how our recent cruise on the Victory April 22-29 was and to let me know about the military special during May. We can book 3 cabins with the discount instead of just 1.

We use Eric Goldmann at Carnival. Phone number is 1-800-819-3902 ext. 85311.
He even has called me to tell me the price has gone down or we could get free upgrades after we have booked. He has saved me plenty of money over the years..
Most TA will not call you after you are booked but Eric takes care of you even after booking. He knows we will cruise again and wants us back. It works as we are getting ready to book another one through him.
