Default Carnival emails about special prices

I haven't seen a single email from Carnival about any specials on certain sialings. The last one I saw I didn't get an email for it, which made me a little curious because I want to get those emails.

Do they slow down with the specials when bookings are slower and pick it up when bookings are down a bit?

Make sure that you go into your profile on Carnival.com and check the box to notify you of special offers and stuff, otherwise they won't.

Apparantly, Carnival has a glitch and many (like myself) dont get the emails once they booked once. People tell me to just open a new email and maintain it to get the Carnival specials, but Im waiting on Carnival to fix their email glitch.

Thank goodness for message boards or I would never know about the specials.

I opened a second one with another email. I'll hope to see something there...I'll check my profile to see if that box is checked...

I am always looking for a bargain, and if I can find an upgrade special for less than regular, I'll jump!!!!

I had the same problem. Once we booked our cruise, we quit getting emails. I will try the new email address route.
Thanks

don't get too excited about Carnival's emails about special rates for pasts guests and crap like that..................99.9% of the time you can get better rates even on the Carnival website itself by going thru their Special Offers section.

Just my opinion

Default Agree with Captain

I've looked into these email "specials" and there is normally little if any difference.
Software engineers know what they're doing, and of course they want to sail with a full ship every time, much like airlines, and keep in mind, however they tout "fun and enjoyment" they are a multi billion dollar corp that expects to make money.

GBrad, you last comment reminded me of something I once read a very long time ago in a Berlitz Las Vegas Guide Book: Las Vegas's exorbitant electricity bills are paid for by the losers!"

but so very true.
