Default Carnival Splendor

I have booked the first cruise on Carnival Splendor, July 13. I wanted to do my own airfare, but am concerned that the ship might not be ready for the first cruise. What are the chances of that happening? Am I OK to book my own airfare, or should I let Carnival do it incase the first cruise does not happen?

Thanks for any info,
Kathy

Book your airfare, then buy travel insurance that covers this type of trouble.

Your TA should be able to help with this.

Please write a review asap after your cruise as we are on the Splendor in October.

There was a Carnival press release yesterday to the effect that Carnival is about to accept bookings for an 8 day cruise that immediately precedes your cruise.

This sounds to me like a cushion cruise or shakedown period in case there are last minute things needing attention.

It also appears that Carnival is now confident enough of the delivery date for this ship that they can sell a few extra days.

All good news for your trip.

That is great news! I will go ahead and get our airfare while it is still lower.

Thanks for the update.
