I think Carnival has about 7000 one day sales a year

I've seen many of them... and I've never seen one you couldn't get a better price for by simply shopping.

Carnival is always having "one-day sales" They had one Monday (yesterday). The only reason I knew of the "sale" was when I called Carnival to quote a cruise they were real pushy about booking it that day as they were having a "one day sale" and the prices wouldn't get any better. Now that is my first experience with a Carnival rep being pushy - felt like a used car salesman attitude. Normally the reps help you and don't jam it down your throat to book!

I know they are ALWAYS having some kind of sale. So there is probably some catch to it. I do seem to find better bargains when I am shopping around or have my TA looking for me.

I received this current one day sale flyer on back-to-back days.

Read the "restrictions". It is for a cat. 4-A, with several restriction on it. I don't think it's that big of a "sale".

Carnival and Sleepys Mattress ALWAYS seem to have one day sales. Sounds like a gimmick to me.

The fare code for this one day "sale" is P1S

It will be interesting to see if the price really changes on Thursday.

Why wait? If you are ready to buy - call today! I just called and was able to get the prices that will be previewed tomorrow.

And - neither of the rooms that I booked were 4A.

all I know is that I happened to be on the computer very very early black friday morning and what a bargain I got - our balcony cabin rate went down and we were able to get an adjustment that saved almost $125pp!! It's definitely worth a look-see but I'd be on the computer at 12:01 Thursday morning! I'll be paying more attention to the 12 days of Christmas specials too. Now if I only had enough vacation time!
