Default How do you get the onboard coupon books?

I've tried search and I can't seem to get it to work. Keep getting errors, but sorry if this is a redundant post. I'm trying to put together some gift bags for some 1st timers & would like to include these. Can't seem to find where/how to get/buy.

Thanks!!

If you are talking about drink coupons, funship dollars or On Board Credit, you can do that from the Carnival's web site. It depends on when you are cruising though. I do know that if it is 2 week or longer, then it's okay. If not, then you will have to call Carnival. You could hand write that these things will be there for them when they arrive on ship.
We are leaving in 11 days, and my daughter couldn't have anything presented to me, so it will be there when I arrive.
I hope this answers your question?

The Carnival coupon books seem to only come from a few TAs. Not all TAs have them to give out. You can also find them on ebay, but I wouldnt pay much if anything for one, nothing in them I want.

I didn't know that there was a coupon book for Carnival. DUH! I am so out of the loop

I thought it was the drink coupons or the funship money that was being asked about here.

I hope someone can help then. Good luck

Ive seen those coupon books, I talk a Carnival Rep out of one, because I felt that if someone spends all that money on cat 11 or 12 they should at least get a gift basket or drink coupons or something, after all we were VIP's
Anyway, they didn't do anything for us, buy one bottle of wine get one free, (we don't drink wine). 10% off spa treatments.. we didn't budget spa treaments in.... I think there was one for a free souvieneer cup (with purchase of a drink..
I don't know I can't remember for sure, but I'm with Redwitch 13....
I'd be looking for drink coupons and funship money.... 8)

Most get them from thier TA's. My TA new nothing about them so she called Carnival. She had to talk to several people at Carnival before she was connected to someone who knew about the books. She was told that thier Rep for the Travel Agency had to contact Carnival and set up to receive them. The only ones they have now expire 12/31/08. We are cruising in '09. She will get us one through the agency rep when the new ones come out. People on another board said they have seen them at a Kiosk at Ft. Lauderdale Airport. Here is what is in the books:

Here is a list of the coupons that are included:

Pre-order 4 bottles of wine and receive the 5th bottle free.

Receive 15% discount on a set of etched Flute Glasses with the purchase of any sparkling wine.

Buy one bottle of wine and receive 10% off a second bottle.

Receive a 10% discount on any memory box from the formalities shop.

Receive a complimentary plate of Chocolate Delights with the purchase of a $45 or higher bottle of champagne for stateroom delivery.

Purchase a smoothie and receive a second smoothie free.

Receive a free Carnival "hurricane" souvenir glass with the purchase of any frozen drink.

Receie an Ultra Premium "Ketel One" Martini for the price of a regular martini.

Receive a complimentary $5 "Free Play" chip.

Purchase an entry into any Ocean Players Club tournament and receive a 2nd tournament entry free.

Receive a Grande Coffee for the price of a Tall Coffee.

Receive a 15% discount towards the purchase of a "Towel Creations with Freddy" book.

Receive 20% off Le Therapie Hydralift Facial or Elemis Stone Therapy while ship is in port.

Choose either Ionithermie or Aromaspa Ocean Wrap for $99 while ship is in port.

Print your own film or media card on board and receive a free 2nd set of prints.

Receive 10 minutes free with purchase of time plan #1 or 5 minutes free with purchase of time plan #2.

Purchase any photo and receive a free 5x7 photo of the ship or the ship's interior.

Certain restrictions apply such as "subject to availability" and "discounts can not be combined with other promotions".

They are free when you book thru certain TAs. Only TAs seem to be able to get them. You cant get them if you book directly thru Carnival. Iv seen some TAs advertise them to get your booking. I dont think Id book thru a TA just to get one of these coupon books.

I won't book with a TA either. We had the most terrific PVP from Carnival, who did a fantastic job for us.

I will book with her agin for sure

I'm with you I won't book through a TA after my friends and I booked with a TA. Anytime I wanted help I had to go through the TA. And, I had trouble with my funship $$ wich is a sore point with me to this day. Never got credit and never got them back. I feel I get better service directly from carnival.
