Default Splendor reprice

I was about to pay the balance and had a look around Travelocity. Found cabins on my floor for significantly less. I called Carnival and they reduced the price and gave an OBC. I am impressed!

Woohoo for you! I keep trying to re-price mine to Baja at the end of May but it just keeps going up; oh, well, at least on a full ship I'm bound to meet some interesting folks!

We are going around Northern Europe on July 25. We were on the 2nd cruise of the Freedom and it was so nice to be on a new ship. We cant wait. I would keep watching the price on Travelocity and the other travel web sites

I SO want to go to Europe again some day. Good for you.

I'm watching the sites, but my cruise is already paid for in full; plus, I booked a cat 1s and it is no longer available, so I'm guessing it's filling up.

Default Booked for the Splendor May '09

We are booked for the Splendor May 10, 09 to Mexico and are looking forward to being on a new ship. We have been on 5 cruises, 3 on Carnival, so far and are excited about this one.

Even before then, we are going the same route on NCL this Sept 27th. We don't care about the ports, just love being on the ships.

We have booked a balcony on the rear of the Splendor and think that will be fun.

I was making an attempt to rebook my cruise. The other night I found a site advertising my cruise for significantly lower amounts. I did call carnival and the girl I spoke with said that I would need to cancel with them and rebook it thru that site I was one. Now low and behold, I dragged my feet and after the midnight hour the prices changed and matched up to what carnival advertised. Hmmm I wonder why she didn't offer an OBC???

I have found that sometimes cruise fares are like the airlines-different rates all over the place. Some web sites offered senior rates, others did not. Some threw in perks (cruise line credits, free drinks, casino chips, etc) others did not. And the rates change from week to week or even more often. It is a game of "chicken" as I have said before. If you are flexible, good hunting. If you are not better to play it safe.

When we booked, the cruise wasn't available on the other sites like Travelocity. It pays to watch.
Last time, we didn't have so much lead time when we booked on the Freedom. We went through Travelocity because it was the cheaper than CCL, Orbitz, or Expedia. I didn't look any further than those sites. But I am going to continue to watch the fares in case they discount further.
